“Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.”

- Barack Obama

The past millennium has been an era of countless inventions like the Printing Press which allowed literacy to greatly expand, Electric Light that powered countless social changes, Vaccinations that protected people from diseases, Airplanes allowing people and products to quickly move, Radio and Television that made the world look smaller, and Computers which transformed Business world. These changes were only possible due to the Creativity of some enthusiastic minds. That Creativity broke out established patterns to look at things differently. Small changes in our reasoning can prompt gigantic modifications in our outcome. In Purvodaya, the annual B-School fest of Vinod Gupta School of Management, IIT Kharagpur, we encourage the vigorous minds of the Country to participate in a surfeit of opportunities and to leave a mark by excelling in different events by abandoning antiquated approaches and spawning the newer ideas. Through adaptability, flexibility, and robustness these bright minds decipher the labyrinth of contemporary Business challenges and emerge victoriously. We strive to continue the magic and the ethos that has made past editions events to remember, by making sure that Purvodaya is where ideas get sparked, innovations thrive, and creativity blooms.
