General Body Meeting 1
"A Kick start GBM"



“The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. You just need a kickstart!”- The motto that governed the first GBM of this semester and kick started the formal journey for newly recruited IMAGeans. It was an unprepared GBM with several non-conventional tasks which let people’s creative juices flowing.
NEWSHOUR- In this task participants had to present news on latest topics, ranging from- ISRO
launching 104 satellites to Pakistan banning Valentine’s Day. The whole scene setting of a newsroom and the proactive journalists made it an informative task.
VECTOR GD- A very unique case study based GD in which thinking direction was assigned to each participant, in accordance with Edward De Bono’s Six thinking hats. This principle helps to take final decisions after parallel and detailed thinking.
DILEMMA- The participants were given a situation of conundrum and two teams represented the left and right side of the brain. The hard fought debate between the critic and the optimistic side aimed at convincing thee judge which side of the brain was more influential.
PICTIONARY- They say, a picture is worth a thousand words, and this task just checked the processing skills of participants wherein they had to make maximum interpretations from a picture given to then on the spot.

ALL EARS- It was a listening activity followed by a Group Discussion themed on the mother language and never ending debate on use of Hindi v/s English as the official language.
