Fit India freedom run: Initiative by Ministry of youth affairs and sports. The objective was to infuse students with a sense of activity. The sports committee of DGMC, convened by Mr. Partha Samanta, organized a Fit India freedom run as part of a two-day event ‘CHETAK’. The purpose of the event was to engage students in physical activity through the college platform. This is was done in part to counter the stagnancy set in by online courses and virtual interaction and partly to keep the students aware of importance of physical activity. As many of the first-year students had not have the opportunity to interact with other students of the college, the run was also to encourage student participation and healthy social interaction amongst the student body. The event was organized in two parts. The first part was the relay run starting at Borivali station and ending at college campus through Kandivali and Malad which was led by the student representative of the sports committee, Mr. Ritesh Gupta and four other students who participated in the run.
The second part focused on individual participation allowing all students to be a part of the activity from their respective location. This was keeping in mind the current pandemic and ensuring that students could participate without compromising their health and safety. On the 18th of September, between 6:00 AM and 9:00 AM, any student of DGMC could participate using a common application and then share the details of their participation with the college committee. As a result of the activity, a total of 9 students covered a cumulative distance of over 37 Kms within three hours. All who participated were cheered on by their peers through Facebook Live and were also awarded a certificate for participation in the Fit India Freedom challenge.
Online Carrom and Chess was held on 18th September 2020. The second day comprised of 2 events, namely Carrom and Chess on online forums.
