The celebrations of the founder’s day of IIM Raipur started with Shramdaan, a volunteering program by Kartavya the social responsibility club. It was our way to thank Government Engineering College, which has generously shared its sprawling campus with IIM Raipur before it moves to its permanent location. The campus had large tracts of unused land and the need to use it constructively was long felt, it was on this occasion that the students pledged their time for leveling the ground so that it can be beautified for future purposes. Members of Kartavya mobilized the resources for the project and identified the areas that could be worked upon. The students from both batches came in large number for the cause, what was surely an arduous task.
In true managerial sense teams were created with tasks and objectives defined which involved clearing out sections, creating layout for passages and marking areas for sports and recreation activities. Members of Kartavya Umesh Chopra, Abhas, Kirti Singhal provided the resources for the activities and also ensured that the efforts turn into a tangible output.
The end of 2 hours of labour by over 80 students resulted in clearing an area measuring over 200 meters wide and equally long.
In the next few days the place will see beautification carried out; the results of the same would be seen very soon.
Kudos to the volunteers!
