“ I’m an ignition, folks with me always put on compulsion to destine success in life.”
Sept’4,Kalyani: EGNITION has come from the word ‘IGNITION’ that means,the burning of fuels of engine, which drives the whole vehicle. But one can ask why there is ‘E’ instead of ‘I’, any guesses? It represents the spirit of the Entrepreneur.
In this way, Kalyani Government Engineering College Entrepreneurship Cell (KGEC E-Cell) organises EGNITION, the first event of this academic year, that brings the fire up into the students about the entrepreneurship cell where talent matters with the hard work. Many students have been motivated and got inspired by the teachers, speakers, and also from the members of KGEC E-cell.
Like every year, Egnition2K19, the freshers’ orientation programme organized by KGEC E-CELL, is growing bigger and better. The programme was held on 4th of September and was sponsored by Learning While Travelling and Arlo’s .

Then, it was time for the first event of the day i.e.“ BIZ-QUIZ” to commence. A total of 56 teams having two participants each had participated in the preliminary round. The top 6 teams was chosen to take part in the final two rounds. The quizmasters Mr.Anjishnu roy and Mr.Debottam Mazumder conducted the quiz beautifully . After a neck to neck fight, the winners Mr.Mayukh sen and Mr. Ayush Singh and the runners-up Mr.Anubhav Dutta and Mr. Rishav Dutta from ECE 1st year outclassed others and secured 4 round trip tickets to the City of Lions, Singapore.
Thereafter it was time for the most awaited fun event named AD-PRENEUR where teams of four participants were enrolled and they had to advertise on real or imaginary products. The most attractive, short but effective, entertaining or rather appealing one will be judged as the best one. After a series of innovative performances from a total of 30 teams , Mr.Sarbodaman Banerjee, Mr.Spandan Samanta, Mr.Krishna Ladha,Mr. Aditya Deb from ME 1st year, trounced others and won 4 round trip tickets to Singapore.

Mr.Sukrit Chowdhury and Mr. Raktim Banejee from Arlo’s also demonstrated their startup plan and future goals during the recession. Thereafter , the main attraction of the day, our chief guest Mr. Vishal Kumar, the Founder & CEO of learningwhiletraveling.com had a lively and invaluable interactive session with the students . He was accompanied by Mr. Anish Singh and Mr. Abhishek Bhuin, a student of our college (ECE, 3rd Year) and the Founder of From The Earth.
After their impactful question answer session, the last event of that day named Off-the-cuff guided by Apurba Banerjee, Avisekh Dutta & Parna Mondal had commenced. The participants had been called to the podium, pick a chit and started speaking on that topic within 30 seconds. Mr. Vishal Kumar, being a judge of this event, stated that,
“It takes a lot of guts and self-belief to go out there and speak on a topic without preparation in front of a huge mass. So, every participant should be appreciated.”
Mr.Dibyanshu Sekhar Dey was adjudged the winner and Miss Sayantika Mondal the runner-up,both from EE 1st year will also join the 8 others to Singapore.
At last, it was the prize distribution ceremony where Mr. Vishal Kumar distributed the trophies, certificates and round-trip tickets of Singapore among the winners.The faces of the newbies who had their first exposure to the market motivates us as an organization to do lot more,even beyond our capacity and mind.
In overall, EGNITION 2k19 was a huge success and will be added as another feather in the cap of KGEC E-CELL. The response from the freshers was overwhelming and they did turn up on that day in huge numbers. The credit though goes to the whole team who worked really hard to promote, organise and pretty much all the stuffs to make it an exceptional one. EGNITION 2k19 brings more enthusiasm to all who have the aspirations to sparkle their lives in entrepreneurship and will be paragons of future.
