Every Muggle must have fantasized about being a part of the exciting sport of witchcraft and wizardry world “Quidditch” and team Retake invited the students of the media fraternity across Mumbai to participate and be a part of this unique yet fun event. Quidditch, being the pre-event for Retake had all the excitement and enthusiasm of the actual game minus the flying of course, although the experience was in itself magical.

Quidditch consists of 3 chasers, 1 keeper, 2 beaters and 1 seeker.

The contestants are provided with a broom which they are supposed to hold between their legs and quaffle (ball) in their hands and run to pass the quaffle through the hoops to score a goal.

Being ‘Temple of Emcees’ as this year’s theme for Retake, a tribute to the Hip Hop culture the college team names were derived from the hip hop industry itself, both national and international.

The event started at 8 am with 9 participating teams resulting in 5 matches between
Jay-Z vs Wiz Khalifa
Drake vs Rajakumari
Travis vs Divine
Snoop Dogg vs Narayan
21 Savage vs Team Retake

The game Jay-Z vs Wiz Khalifa and resulted in an amazing win for the Wiz Khalifa, with the score of 0-20. The next match was between Drake vs Rajakumari. It was an intense match that left the scoreboard ticking every time. That made it hard to predict the winner. The rivals for the third match were Travis Scott and Divine which ended with a win for the latter team. The next match was between Snoop Dog and Naezy. Contingent Naezy had an amazing win. The match with 21 Savage went in favour of Team Retake.

Semi-finals were played among the 4 finalists: Naezy vs Rajakumari and Travis Scott vs Wiz Khalifa.

The final match between Travis Scott vs Naezy was the highlight of the event, keeping the audience on their toes. Both teams were equally strong and gave a tough fight resulting in the decision for the win to be taken by a sudden death penalty score which was triumphed by the team Naezy.

A game is no fun without the supporters of the teams playing. The volunteers of the respective contingents playing cheered for their teams using various quirky and funny slogans which made the events even more exciting to watch.

The contingents had also got snacks and delights for Team Retake as a token of thanks for organising the event.

The day of Quidditch was long and filled with exhilaration and the contestants went home with a feeling of fullness, looking forward to the equally zealous for the upcoming Retake festival.

Project Zaraat by Enactus DCAC

Published

Project Zaraat | News Aur Chai Media

Farmers form the backbone of the Indian Economy, making up more than 40% of the workforce. However, every day 28 people dependent on farming commit suicide—the post-harvest losses in the country amount to over 93,000 crores per year. The loss of 93,000 crores constitutes approximately 40% of the country’s total produce. This occurs due to the perishable nature of agricultural produce, which often forces farmers to sell their produce at the prevailing market price, be it high or low, thereby resulting in a loss of bargaining power.

Addressing this issue through the positive power of social entrepreneurship, Enactus DCAC, an international not for profit student body organisation, initiated Project Zaraat for the upliftment of the farming community. The mission of Project Zaraat is to minimise post-harvest losses and enhance forward linkages through a self-sustaining social enterprise.

Under the mentorship and guidance of Michigan State University and the Indian Agricultural Research Institute, Zaraat provides the farmers with a unique storage solution that works on the principle of evaporative cooling. It is affordable, portable, and eco-friendly, making it different from conventional storage facilities. Moreover, this solution increases the shelf life of the produce by upto ten days, ensuring that the quality of produce does not deteriorate. Apart from this, they also aim to partner with various B2B aggregators to ensure a rise in income for the farmers and provide them with payment security.

Currently, they are in the process of integrating farmers into an FPO to ensure collective bargaining power. They are also exploring sustainable agriculture practices that are vital in a climate constrained world.

Project Zaraat is a recipient of the KPMG Ethics Grant and also received a Special Mention at the Enactus Early Stage National Competition 2021.

Building on this by the end of the year, they aim to sustain the lives of 100 farmers by providing them with an income boost of 25%, reduce post-harvest losses by a whopping 60%, and minimise the energy consumption by 20%. For more information, visit www.enactusdcac.com.
