The solemn duty of an educational institution is not only to impart lessons pertaining to the subjects, but also to encourage its students to go beyond the syllabus, and engage in co-curricular activities. An all-round development of a student is only possible when his repertoire of knowledge increases with time. A curious temperament is the need of the hour. Brainware Group of Institutions began this journey of excellence on September 23, 2017 with the inauguration of a quiz competition on a large scale, ‘Inquisitive Minds’ in association with Career Launcher. It was a step towards introducing the students to a competitive zone, towards instilling in them a spirit of enquiry.The journey culminated in the decisive victory of Mainak Chakraborty and Abhisekh Chakraborty, the 2 nd yearv students of B.Tech CSE of Brainware Group of Institutions. They overcame all the odds and after having faced stiff competition, emerged victorious in the finale held at Rotary Sadan, Kolkata on November 5, 2017. It was a proud moment for them as well as Brainware Group of Institutions which now hopes to organize similar programs, so that the students could not only increase their knowledge base but also allow themselves to express and test themselves in a competition and that so on such grand stage.
