Gravitas 2021 “The moment of victory is much too short to live for that and nothing else” Martina Navratilova After a much elongated stay away from the Lavale campus, upon arriving to the Hilltop, there was clearly a need of an event where the MBA-1 batch could wind down and socialise with their batch mates as well as their seniors. Under normal circumstances, these need would have been catered by Hoopsters event but that had to be skipped for these year.
