RIMS to celebrate Synergy in New Year

It’s time for the medicos of Rajendra Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS) to take a break from the daily grind and indulge in all things fun and creative.

Synergy 2013, the annual sports-cum-cultural fest of RIMS, is back. The 20-day jamboree, which will continue from January 6 to 25, will witness a host of both off-stage and on-stage events as well as track and field action, informed RIMS director Tulsi Mahto at a news meet on Friday.

Organised since 2003, Synergy will complete a decade this year and hence, the excitement is more. Planned meticulously by third-year students, as many as 90 medicos are part of the organising committee.

“The sports section will include both indoor and outdoor games. We kept out cricket this year,” said Jitendra Kumar Singh, one of the members of the organising committee.

Giving a rough itinerary, Jitendra added that the fest would start with events like badminton, carrom and chess. “Football, volleyball, basketball and lawn tennis will follow over the next few days.”

The doctors will also show their creative side in contests like mask-making, painting, nail art and rangoli. On-stage events like dance and skit have been set aside for the last two days. The college’s rock band, AIR, promises to present an electrifying performance.

The biggest crowd magnet, that is performances by celebrity guests, have been saved for the last day.

“We are trying to contact a few of them. Nothing has been finalised. Last year, we had invited singer Amit Sana,” said Jitendra.
