A few days back I received a message from Nidhi jee with regards to an Event of Jabong Turf War Season II at GL Bajaj Institute of Technology and Management in Greater NOIDA.
Sach kahu to Greater NOIDA bahut door parrta hai, par after going through the pre event release, I loved that yeh kuch alag kar rahe hai. Also they offered to provide a cab, so made my decision easier.
Ab sach kahu, I have never used a Brands Cab for an event as I love driving myself to nearby places, par GREATER NOIDA is doosri duniya. Also, uss din earlier in the day I was supposed to give a TEDx Talk at Ramjas college. So pata tha ki shad thora mentally bhi exhausted hi hounga.
Anyways, after an amazing session at Ramjas College, I headed home where the cab was already waiting to cover the 45 Km distance upto Greater Noida.
Abhi sirf 5 mins hi hue the & I dozed off, only to wake up at DND NOIDA Expressway. Another 15 mins of drive and I was at the destination at GL Bajaj Institute of Technology and Management.
One could see Lights flashing inside and Loud Music giving a hint that the evening is being enjoyed by one and all inside.
As I entered inside towards the main area, I could see smiling faces all across.
I was a bit late and got to know that Sharda University have emerged as the champions of the Jabong Turf War Season II and have picked up the Jabong Turf War trophy and a cash prize of INR 25,000. They beat Greater Noida Institute of technology by ten goals to zero in the finals. More than 15 colleges from Delhi NCR participated in the 5×5 campus football tournament held at GL Bajaj Institute of Technology and Management.
Rahul Taneja, the Chief Business Officer of India’s leading online fashion retailer, Jabong was there and said, “We are extremely delighted to welcome all the guests and celebrities to the second edition of Jabong turf war. The grit and determination displayed by the participating teams was truly amazing to watch. Jabong Turf now goes to Mumbai next month and I am eager to witness what the teams there have to offer”
Henrik Svenning, Head of International Markets, hummel®, said, “Hummel is proud to support the Turf War tournament and the promotion of football in India. Hummel and turf war is about doing your best at the pitch and enjoy fun, fashion and football. It’s the perfect platform to launch our brand in India. A big thank you to Jabong and congratulations with a successful turf war”.
While I was hearing this, I was sipping the Chai from Chai Point Kiosk and then the action shifted towards the Main ground where MTV VJ Clince Varghese was hosting the event along with British film actress, singer, model, TV presenter and former MTV VJ Sophie Choudry
The same was followed by Dance and Music Shows and then after watching the Fashion Show I bid Adieu to the event and came back sleeping in the cab after having a great day.
I love going to these kinds of unique events where anything out of the box is attempted and delivered beautifully.
Some events are Unique and Jabong Turf War Season II was one of them. It was a perfect combination of Sports, Fashion, Music, Dance and Food.
