Exun 2007

Exun 2007

For the people who made Exun a success:

Mukesh Sir

We have really no words to express what Mukesh Sir means to us and the entire Exun team. He is the driving force behind everything we do and epitomizes all qualities Exun is known to possess- expertise, professionalism, teamwork and limitless enthusiasm! Thank you for everything, Sir! We all know that without you, there would have been no Exun, let alone Exun 2007!

Shikhar Kohli

Sir has rightly named him the ‘Man of Exun 2007’. He not only coordinated his designated duty i.e the trophies, with perfection, but also managed innumerable other tasks. He could always be seen with a Walkie-Talkie, running around and making sure everything was being carried out brilliantly.

Srajan Mani

Of all members, he probably worked the hardest. Even days before the event, he was always the first one to reach and the last one to leave. From his side, there were never any excuses or complaints, and no work was too low for him. He also assembled the configuration for the Pavna PC as a platform to work on the video.

Ankit Srivastava

He spent days and worked late at nights with Aviral on the video. The entire idea was conceptualized by him and he successfully gave the video the personal touch it needed. He also did a great job managing all the speeches and the AVH.

Aviral Goel

Our multimedia expert. Apart from spending days on the video, which was highly appreciated, he also coordinated the photography, and also anything else that required his impeccable skills in digital imaging and video editing.

Kartikeya Asthana

His presence at the registration desk ensured that the registration process was a breeze and also made sure the gaming event went perfectly.

Sahil Bajaj

A person indispensable for Exun. All thanks to him, the web updates were done at a rapid speed. He also conducted the Opening Ceremony flawlessly.

Ananth Govind Rajan

He coordinated the invitations follow up, public relations and registration extremely efficiently.

The trio- Shubham Goel, Rishabh Marya and Tanay Padhi

From being escorts last year, they did a phenomenal job at the Reg Desk this year. They also helped in endless other work and were always ready to run around! They will definitely take Exun to greater heights in the years to come.

Aditya Jain

Our Junior Coordinator, he ensured everybody was doing their duties properly. He also helped in Digital Imaging tasks such as the Banner and the Under_Score cover.

Sameer Mittal

One of our newest members, who came in through eLite, he was our ‘Mobile Help Desk’, constantly running around, but also making sure his assigned duty, the Help Desk was always handled properly. The new “Gentle Giant”.

Pranav Obhrai

Another upcoming star. Worked hard, ran around a lot and was the main person behind the Under_Score cover.

Gaurav Misra

Our software expert, he was the man behind the Online Registration & Photography – extremely core components in efficient management of Exun 2007.

Bharat Agarwal

One of the senior most members, he did the entire work of coordinating with the judges. We even received a mail from one of the Judges complimenting on how professionally the Judge Correspondence had been dealt with! Bharat was always there when he was needed.

Sakshi Gupta

Being in Exun for quite some time now, Sakshi handled several demanding tasks this time. She fulfilled her Programming event duty, made sure the judges were cared for and also never refused when she was asked to fill in as an escort!

Adideva Sekhri, Shobhagya Jose, Aditya Grover and Vishesh Kumar

They showed immense dedication in the gruesome escorts duty. Always ready to sprint when required, they never declined any work that was asked of them.

Arshiya Sibia and Mini Saxena, Akriti Gaur and Mini Saxena

They helped extensively in setting up packets for registration. They also made sure that the AVH, our prime event spot, was always covered properly.

Kanika and Akriti also delivered the speeches wonderfully. Despite being new to the stage, they were confident and always willing to work hard in order to improve. They will surely handle all speeches at future Exuns successfully as well.

Utkarsh Ohm,Digvijay Singh

Key backend people. They played an essential role in all managerial and coordination tasks. Utkarsh did a fantastic job to make sure all certificates were printed on time.

Rijul Jain, Vansh Muttreja, Akul Dayal, Anant Jain, Aayush Kumar, Kunal Singh

The senior Exun members, they helped wherever they were needed. Their experience of organizing numerous events in the past, no doubt, helped make Exun a success.

Shubham Prakhar, G. Sidharth

Our eLite Quiz Winners, they also did a lot of running. They ensured that the Quiz and Crossword Prelims in the Classrooms and the Programming event in the labs were carried out smoothly.

Rahul Bhatnagar, Tushaar Talwar and Varun Dubey

Also in their first Exun, they helped in managing various tasks efficiently.

Manvi Arora

Our youngest member and with six more years to go, she is Exun’s future. She watched all events with keen interest and will surely be a Participant as well as Winner in the years to come.

Hema Ma’am

We missed her last year and the professionalism of this year’s Opening and Closing Ceremony proves how vital she is for Exun.

Vijay Sir and Tiwari Sir– They were important people in the success of our event. They stayed back in school to ensure we could get everything done.

Joseph Sir, Diny Sir, Anup Sir and Thomas Sir They were our crucial back end support. We are extremely grateful for their assistance with everything.
Shankar Sir– Probably the most essential person for Exun. He was always willing to help in any way he could and whenever something was needed, all we had to do was ask him just once!

We express our gratitude towards all other teachers- Anita Ma’am, Romi Ma’am, Sarika Ma’am, Manisha Ma’am, Sangeeta Ma’am, Nandini Ma’am, Ajithkumar sir, Manpreet Ma’am, Shekhar Sir for all their effort, encouragement and support.

We would also like to thank all other support staff of the school.

We hope nobody has been left out. Once Again, Thank you for making Exun 2007 such a big success.
