ZEST is COEP’s Annual National Level Inter-Engineering Sports Meet organised in the month of January. The Sports festival organised by COEP commenced in the year 2003 and there began an era of Sports, an era of excitement, thrill and energy, an era of ZEST. Over the years, ZEST has become nation’s one of the biggest and most awaited sports festival for all the athletes-engineers. Now in its fourteenth edition, ZEST’17 is scheduled on 26th to 29th January 2017 and it will consist of 41 events, divided over 7 modules.
ZEST ’17 is about the show; the spectacle; the visceral entertainment that appeals to the primal winning instincts dormant in all of us. This too would not be far from the truth. But, the real truth, as we all know, is much more nuanced. The theme this year is ‘Hope : Play. Inspire. Unite. The 21st century of modern human society presents us with a bleak picture of what could be. War and turmoil are rampant. Relations between races, religions, and various groups are strained – and the rope is about to snap.
ZEST is one of the 24 strengths possessed by humanity. As a component of the virtue of courage, ZEST is defined as living life with a sense of excitement, anticipation, and energy. Approaching life as an adventure; such that one has “motivation in challenging situations or tasks” signifies ZEST. The tagline – “Where victory is the only vice…” motivates us to become victorious in our life with energy, excitement i.e. with ZEST.
