A sports fest for Law schools

Law took a backseat for the would-be-lawyers at the WB National University of Juridical Sciences (NUJS) as 16 colleges and universities came together for one of the biggest sports fest in India.

Cricket, football, badminton, volleyball, basketball, throwball, lawn tennis, table tennis… phew! Invicta 2013, the seventh edition of the Annual National Law Universities’ Sports Meet held at the Sports Authority of India (SAI), next to the Salt Lake stadium, between February 14 and 18, was a real adrenaline rush.

“The number of participants continues to rise and this year we have gone international with the faculty of law, Chittagong University, coming in,” said convener Shoumendu Mukherji.

The out-of-station participation also overtook city participation as 12 out of 16 colleges were from outside Bengal. “This is the biggest sports meet right now and its objective is to encourage and build champions. This year we have a contingent of 65 students from our university,” said Sharath S. Puthenparampan, a fourth year law student at School of Law, Christ University, Bangalore.

And if that was work then there had to be some play too! “Calcutta is a really nice place. We will head for Park Street as soon as the meet gets over; we have heard so much about it,” smiled Prerana Rajgharia, a law student at Christ University.
