PRAYAS- The Sports Club
Sports are such a great teacher. I think of everything they've taught me: camaraderie, humility, how to resolve differences - Kobe Bryant
As much as the need for academics is stressed in GIM, students are also made to realise that the importance for sports is essential for holistic self-development.
The Sports Club,Prayas is responsible for organising sports events of the college and taking care of any equipment requirements whenever needed.
Prayas organises a multitude of events within the given calendar, namely:
- Gully Cricket - An indoor cricketing fiesta for the gaming fanatics to try out the delicate cuts and drives in confined boundaries.
- Carromania - An event encompassing carom lovers to try out their deft touches to pocket the queen
- Dahi Handi - Amidst Sporting extravaganzas, the cultural value imbibed in Club's ethics are justified in Matki Phod on Janmashtami to celebrate the birth of Hindu Deity Lord Krishna.
- Street Football - An indoor fun version of the football, which gives the players to try out their own 360's and around the world in a dribbling extravaganza.
- Tug OF War - An event on the grassy outfields of G.I.M to test the might via rope pulling
- Ping Pong - Table tennis event to extract the precision and accuracy of players to keep the ball on table.
- Panache - G.I.M's very own version of walking the ramp where the managers cum model grace the event on the exciting fashion show night.

- Basanti - The flagship event with historical significance of its own in the name is the Cricketing Mahamukabla where the players fight for the coveted "BASANTI CUP"
- Smash - The shutters battle it out in the indoor confines of the Multi-Purpose hall to be the very best in Badminton
- Veeru - The hand eye coordination is finally tested with the "sports concluding event" Volleyball

Our objective is to inculcate the traits of leadership, self discipline, strong character and good sports-person among its students while nurturing them to compete in dynamic business environment.
The mantra of Prayas is simple - ‘Word Hard,Play Hard' - and its mission is to awaken the sportsperson in every individual.
