We shall be trying to provide solution to the many existing problems since constant growth is the need of the hour today and thus we aim for converting the dream for a powerful and dynamic nation to reality.
Every Year we decide on a mascot to represent the theme of Ignitia which portrays what we aspire to achieve in the coming years to come. this year, our mascot is inspired from the main character of the movie WALL-E. This is a 2008 American computer-animated science fiction film produced by Pixar Animation Studios for Walt Disney Pictures.
This movie is set in a timeline where humans leave earth due to it becomiing a wasteland, leaving behind a waste collecting robot WALL-E who takes the responsibility of tidying up the planet garbage by garbage. This movie aligns with the theme of our event "Reconstructing India", the hardwork that wall-E puts into reconstructing the wasteland of an earth into a place to live in proves that if we work hard with sheer determination we can achieve anything. WALL-E's zeal to never give up motivated us to face up all difficulties and put all efforts to make this event a grand success.
