Jersey Designing for Zero Gravity (Creativity)
My friend, Harshil, and I had volunteered to design a jersey for our Ultimate team (Zero Gravity). Our team did not have a personal jersey, for a long time, and so we thought it was important for us to design a new one. We wanted to make something very cool, and so in the end we decided to go superhero themed. Once we started working we realised that it was not possible for us to design the jersey, so we took help from Khusbhu Thakur.
This activity taught me immense time management skills. We had been running late for all our deadlines as we did not prioritise. Later, we pulled up our socks and finished it considerably late. But, the upside was that Khusbhu ma’am and Harshil were very cooperative and worked even during the holidays (including me). Even though we got the jersey on the day of the tournament, we were happy that we could design such an amazing jersey for our fellow players.
The one thing that this activity taught me was to be committed to work/ people all the time. Had we left working during our holidays, we wouldn’t have seen so many happy faces. We raised people’s excitement even before we started working, just by saying “we are designing a new Superhero themed jersey for 0G”. Therefore, it became a serious task for us to reach their high hopes.
The cost price of the jerseys were 450 and 650, but we sold them at 500 and 700, respectively, to gain some funds for Jhumbish. We got a decent amount of Rs. 3000/- by the end, but then we encountered a problem. A few people’s jerseys were misplaced even before they got them and so we had to make sure we repaid them. This taught me the second like lesson of being ethical at all times. We repaid them the complete amount and did not take any money for funds.
In a nutshell, this activity was fun and riveting. I got to see many happy faces.
