Battling all odds and silencing all critics, the team of participants under the banner of Amity Institute of Biotechnology Undergraduate Youth Council, sent to IIT Roorkee to participate in their annual fest “Thomso ‘07”, which is touted as the biggest and the most famed fest of the whole of North India, proved their mettle. Competing against 106 top colleges of India, Amitians were always a part of the winning frame. The tremendous amounts of talent which was on display in the 600 acres of lush IITR campus was truly worth admiring, there was a feeling of youth blended with a strong desire to win which resulted in a strong enthusiastic environment and the Amitians who were a part of this extravaganza took the challenge like ‘300’ Spartans.
While each and every participant of the 40 odd team members stood out in the events participated, AIBians scrapped quite a few awards, which (being very modest) was the second highest number of awards by any college at the fest, these statistics multiply when compared to the fact that the home team came (obviously) first. Amity participants were from AIB Undergraduate Youth Council
Starting from the first day itself, the openers of the prolific AIBian batting order, sent the competing teams running for their money, each and every department of AIB’s team tasted blood and dashed through all the prelims with utmost ease causing ripples through all the sects of the campus…
