SIMERATIONS, the flagship event of SIMSREE, was held from 20th September - 22nd September, 2013 to bring together the student community in a 3-day management-cultural-sports extravaganza. The annual fest is organized by an enthusiastic, energetic Students' Events Committee of SIMSREE. Simerations’13 gave students, all over the country, a chance to participate in an array of 20 events ranging from management to cultural to sports to literary to general. Prizes worth 4 lacs were won by the participants. The associate sponsors for the event were State Bank of India and Union Bank of India.

Simerations’13 saw a participation of over 3000 teams across the events. Most of the events were conducted in multiple stages, wherein the first round was online and the shortlisted teams were called on campus. The opening ceremony was graced by the presence of the Director Dr. Sandhya Dhabe, ex-director and currently the Registrar at Mumbai University Dr M. A. Khan, Prof. Ashish Pawaskar, Dr. R. K. Srivastava and Dr. Sangeeta Pandit. Dr. M. A. Khan declared the event open for students. Auspicious lighting of diyas along with prayer song, a speech by the Students Events Committee’s coordinator, Krunal Shah, followed by an energy-packed performance by Vishal Nandkumar, a student of the senior batch marked the start of the event.

The management events – Fineureka, Spotlight, Filmark, Whiplash, Convergence, Millward Brown Link Quest – gave the students a chance to present their ideas to the industry stalwarts who judged the various events. Not only did the best teams win cash prizes, few lucky teams got a chance to intern with companies like Activeark JWT and Catapooolt.

The literary events included MUN (Model United Nations) and Triathlon. Participants simulated the UN general assembly and found solutions to the most pressing global problems of today. Triathlon was a 3-stage race to the finish, a triathlon that put the participants’ left and right brain to the test. The event saw participation of 20 teams.

Cricket fanatics had a reason to cheer in this edition of Simerations’13; not only could they enjoy the game in the 'Box-Cricket Event', this time they could also experience the bidding process in the event ‘The Franchisor’. The participants enjoyed the chance to bid for the players, cities, cheer leaders, celebrities in the IPL like bidding event. Sports enthusiasts had a fun time with various other games like Chess, Table Tennis, LAN Gaming. Another event that saw huge participation was the Treasure Hunt. Participants had to do a series of tasks at certain locations to claim the treasure!

Amongst all these were the cultural events where the students who are otherwise busy with assignments and projects got a chance to let their hair down and follow their passion. Cultural events included Picture Perfect (A theme based photography competition), Guitar Warz, Salsa Workshop, Just Dance (Street Dance competition), DJ Night. Picture Perfect, with over 100 participants, brought the creativity of the participants to forefront and the judges guided the participants about the approach to be taken for future projects. The dance competition was judged by prominent personalities like Mr. Muddasar Khan (Bollywood choreographer) and Ms. Madhu Sneha (Femina Miss Fashionista 2012). Like all good things come to an end, so did Simerations’13 but it ended with a bang (DJ Night).


Nice experience overall...Particularly enjoyed the treasure hunt and the online quizzes :)

Great Event!!! 3 days of full entertainment and learning.
