Jamshedpur : Amidst a lot of excitement, cheering and eagerness, the India Jam Project made their entry onto the stage at Tata Audi on Friday.
The band surely didnít disappoint the audience as they started off with an amazing display of musical fusion of the east and the west. They left the audience awestruck when they played the theme songs of Mission Impossible, James Bond and Pirates of the Caribbean on the traditional Indian instruments such as sitar, flute and tabla.
The noise inside the auditorium increased by several notches when they started off the theme song of game of thrones and it only became better as the show progressed.
The sports events got a lot of traction as contingents gathered to cheer for their teams and indulge in the rivalries built over the previous editions. As contingents kept entering the gates of XLRI, the news spread about their arrival and the schedules were shared so that the audience can gather at the said venue.
XLRIís basketball and badminton teams faced success on the initially stage with most of the other events scheduled for the later part of Day 2. With the home team facing off against top contenders, the atmosphere was building as the business end of the tournament was finally here.
For the participants at XLRIís Future Leaders Program, the penultimate day of the course commenced with an in-depth session on the prospective career paths they can choose post their education.
