XIMB launched its annual management-cultural fest, Xpressions. The launch of the event was carried 
out here at XIMB in the auditorium filled with students, members of the media and administration. 
The eighty minute launch function introduced the crowd to the coming three days of Xpressions and 
further pumped up the energies of the attendees to match the magnanimity of the event.
The introductory speech was given by Mr. Manikant Nayak of Tata Steel. Tata Steel is the title 
sponsor of Xpressions and has long been associated with XIMB in many ways. Mr. Nayak spoke of 
this association and wished Xpressions to be a grand success. 
This was followed by the traditional lighting of the lamp by esteemed guests and a speech by the 
Coordinator of Student Affairs, Fr. V. Arockia Das SJ. His speech gave the crowd an insight into how 
Xpressions started 16 years ago and has been growing stupendously ever since. The previous years 
have seen the likes of Arijit Singh, Mohit Chauhan, KK and many more grace XIMB and this year XIMB 
is all set to host Coke Studio featuring Amit Trivedi on the final day of Xpressions’14. He also proudly 
announced about the new initiatives that Xpressions has taken by introducing events for the socially 
responsible like X-Athon (marathon), X-Pallavan (sapling distribution) and Prayaag (a platform for 
the differently-abled). Coordinator, Dr. S. Peppin also threw light on why Xpressions is such an 
integral part of XIMB. “It’s a great opportunity for XIMB to make its presence felt across the nation. 
The zeal, enthusiasm and passion to work in unison towards a common goal are what the spirit of 
Xpressions stands for”, he said.
His speech was followed by a traditional performance of Odissi dance by dancer, Manisha 
Manaswini. She mesmerized the audience with her graceful depiction Of Lord Krishna’s beauty on 
the composition of Madhurashtakam. Her dance was followed by the presentation of the launch 
video of Xpressions. The video introduced the theme of Xpressions’14 – Metamorphosis. 
Xpressions’14 is set to celebrate the transformation towards excellence by adding of a new and 
hidden dimension. It seeks to encourage one to bring his hidden and innate quality to the fore. The 
video also justified the enormity of this fest by giving a sneak-peak into all the 34 events that are 
going to take place over the next three days, including business simulation games, case study 
competitions and cultural activities. With this, the director, Father Paul declared Xpressions’14 to be 
The opening ceremony also included some other activities like a mix-cultured dance by the students 
of XIMB, X-Burst and X-Relay. X-Burst celebrated the start of the fest by bursting crackers and X-
Relay was a friendly relay race conducted among all the game committees that are responsible for 
the flagship events of Xpressions. The ceremony concluded with the distribution of Coca Cola bottles 
to ‘Spread Joy’ and to mark the association of XIMB with Coke Studio.
