Apart from the host institute and our own girls and boys teams, 14 teams played for their respective institutions for the girl’s matches and 23 played for the boys matches. Our girl’s basketball team, consisting of captain Reva Shah, vice-captain Zitin Kaul, Ananya Arakkel, Tushita Negi, Chiranshie Vyas, Anshula Mantena, Arpita Nayak, Atiriya Narayan, Suhana Khan, Kesang Bhutia, Shruti Korde, and Aishwarya Ghule won the silver medal as they ranked second in the entire tournament.

The team was also supported by a few students from SSLA who accompanied them to their match to watch and cheer on for their final match (along with SSCA’s resident pet dog). Post the match, students from Symbiosis Institute of Culinary Arts, offered the team yummy treats that they made for them.
The in-house annual production, SSLA presents came up with an exciting announcement this week around. The production house preponed the shows by 10 days. The week earlier saw the entire student body receive an announcement from faculty incharge Suchetana Banerjee, informing that the 2 plays that students and administration has been working on for so long will now be open to the audience on 7th December. Along with that, this morning they also set up a memorial structure, a mandap, essentially for the infamous character featured in the previous production. This mandap is the official and formal announcement of a disintegration from the past productions to the official new beginnings. Along with this, one can catch official posters to the 2 plays, along with fun clues regarding the plot, immensely increasing the excitement and buzz around the production. The call is to mark the calendars and be ‘present’ at the SVC auditorium.
