Football
"What a great day for football, all we need is some green grass and a ball". The contemporary history of the world's favourite game spans more than 100 years. It all began in 1863 in England when rugby football and association football branched off on their different courses and the Football Association in England was formed - becoming the sport's first governing body. Football has always been a hierarchical sport with its roots at the academy level, moving up to the college level and hitting higher levels of non-league football and professional league soccer. With the footballing landscape seeing a major shift in the Indian subcontinent, we deem it best suited that talent is recognized as early as possible and maximum time given for its germination. VAJRA'18 promises you to provide you with just the perfect platform to prove your individual adroitness and your team's cohesion in a battle of the greatest college teams from eastern India.
Cricket
Once dubbed as 'baseball on Valium', the English game of cricket originated in the sheep-raising country of the Southeast, where the short grass of the pastures made it possible to bowl or roll a ball of rags or wool at a target. Throughout the English countryside, each year in late April and early May, that familiar sound of leather (ball) against willow (bat) can once again be heard, signifying the start of a new cricket season. For American readers – this is the name of England’s premier summer sport and not some noisy bug! A game, which could perhaps be described as a cross between baseball and chess. A game, which takes five days to play and more often than not ends in a draw. A game which has found devotees, followers and lovers in all of the far-flung reaches of the old British Empire including Australia, New Zealand, West Indies, South Africa, India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. Keep your zest in check just until 2nd November!
Chess

Basketball

Wait to quaff your largest draughts from this river of fascination. Flowing from 2nd November.
