Jamshedpur, July 8: City-based B-school, Xavier Labor Research Institute (XLRI) is gearing up to host the 6th edition of this three-day sports-cum-cultural extravaganza titled “Valhalla” from July 29 to 31. This one-of-its-kind event will see the best business minds across the country; battle it out in the field of sports and performing arts.
The theme this year is “The streets are calling.” The streets with their mayhem, mystery and mischief are calling out to the brightest minds to prove their worth and own the streets.
Previous editions of the fest have seen B-schools like IIM-Calcutta, Faculty of Management Studies, Delhi, XIMB and many more stake their claim to victory.
The pre-launch proved to be a huge success with participants pulling off a show of strength at tug-of-war, skillfully edging out opponents at sumo wrestling, putting on their thinking caps to hunt for hidden treasure and bringing out their quirky side for minute-to –win-it.
The events range from football to quizzes, fashion shows to chess, table tennis to debates…the list is endless. The Jamshedpur Run, hosted by CII Yi, the largest marathon in Jamshedpur, is one of the highlights of “Valhalla.”
Going by previous records of this run, this year too Jamshedpur will wake up and hit the streets running for a cause. This year playback singer Nikhil D’Souza who has been making waves in Bollywood with his eclectic acoustic guitar based pop will perform.
“Valhalla promises to bring out the best in people as they strive to emerge victorious and claim their rightful place in Valhalla, the House of Warriors. This year it is about who we are and what we can do for the greater good. The streets are calling @ Valhalla, XLRI” said a member of the organizing committee.
