Gaia’09 is a national level environmental fest conducted by Swami Vivekananda Institute of Technology on 20th March,09. On a planet where advancement of science and technology leads to its very destruction the role of its myopic species can never be understated, may our planet, The Earth, never have to witness a day when the most intriguing phenomenon, life, disappears due to the very quest for survival, Gaia’09 was all about creation instinct with competitions that stimulate new ways of thinking and approach.

Gaia, a Greek word which means Goddess of Earth was a first of its kind event in a technical institution, brought up the students of SVIT.The focus and main theme to sketch upon this event was mainly to stage on the application of science and technology for sustainable development, said chief co-ordinator. This event is also to address few environmental issues like:
• Global energy crisis.
• Global climate change.
• Bio degradable substitutes.

Gaia’09 began with the inaugural function in the presence of Chief guest Sri.C.B.Namdev garu. He told the students that he is very happy with the students innovation and was awestruck by the way the event shaped in a short span of period. He also wished good luck to the students for their forth coming examinations. The principal of SVIT in his speech was extremely felicitous with the way his college students brought up the new idea of awareness and wished them a success in all the events they undertake in present and future. “The teens won over the tees” was the statement of the Vice-Principal on the day of website launch, said a representative of Gaia’09.

After the formal inaugural function which declared Gaia’09 open for the participants the competitions started parallely. The help desk maintained a good pace with the queries of the students and lulled the participants in case of delay of the event. Great job hospitality dept!!! The major events that witnessed the crowd were “The General Quiz” and “The Environmental Quiz”. The general quiz included questions from all the directions of the world, in short its topics covered anything under the sun,and this was an open category quiz. The Environmental quiz was mainly concerned with environment and its sister concerns. Few events had to be called off due to unconditional problems. Operation tremors( debugging competition) was extremely allotted for the college students.

The Green Wave (paper presentation) saw all the blues and greens as the participants gave a tough competition and it was tough for the judges to comment on the performance. It was a event that lasted for 2 hours and observed good presence of students from other colleges. Resurrection of the Sacred Tigress was a theme based treasure hunt which had a time limit and gave the participants good time in search of the Sacred Tigress.

The Eco Tour was again an event which had students and faculty pouring in for almost 2 hours, who were told about the Environmental friendly technologies. Albeit big efforts put forward to aware people with a new idea, the event was not able to steal the audience due the weak publicity problems. Not due to weak functionality of the publicity department maybe due to other reasons was the point to note was the statement opined by a Student of SVIT. The effort of the other departments was equally good and to be improved. On the whole the event was rated 6.5/10 by Goutham, winner of Green Wave. At the end of the day(sunny) it was as if Gaia came down to witness her event when it suddenly started to rain. Cheers Gaia’09 team, always a weak moment is followed by a great success. Good Luck!!!
