The main objectives of the event were to make students read reference books in management and allied areas and also make them understand ‘How to write a Book Review’ and to make ‘Power Point Presentations related to the book chosen’. 183 students were divided into 15 groups and each group had to choose one book of their choice. Each group had to choose a group leader. They had to read the book and make Model, Poster, Power Point Presentation and also write a review on the Book. Management Lessons learnt from the book was the most important aspect of the activity. It was a competition and prizes were declared to best group presentations amongst 15 groups. Apart from top three and consolation prizes, special prizes for Innovative Model, Innovative Book Review and Innovative PPT were also given.
