Lakshya is an idea which was brought up by the students of Robocon LDCE in the year 2014. Every year a unique theme is created by which Lakshya tries to bring about a constructive change in the society. In 2014 the theme was “Defence Expo” in which guard of honour was given to all the martyrs. In 2015 the theme was “H.R. SUMMIT” wherein HRs of many companies attended the summit and in turn signed MOUs which helped our college students in getting internships and placements. In 2016, an education conclave “SAMVAD-The Education Conclave” was hosted to discuss the education system in the country. A Student Development Forum was set-up to perform the exchange of knowledge and facilities among various colleges of Ahmedabad. Lakshya 2017 brought up the theme “Parivartan – Transforming India”, which focused on the areas concerning Digital India and Skilled India. Lakshya 2018, with the theme “KHWAAB- towards a new era”, focused on future scenario of our country in fields like telecommunication, education infrastructure etc. Lakshya 2019 introduced to people the vivacious side of our nation where India is doing wonders and is way ahead from other countries with the theme of “Noor-e-Swadesh”. Lakshya 2020, with the theme “Saamarthya – redefining the standards of engineering” highlighted the contribution of engineers in improving standard of living of people. Lakshya 2021, with the theme “Perception” which aimed to show the revolutionary changes and evolution in the industries and technologies. Lakshya 2022, with the theme “Anāgata – divulging the unprecedented” instilled the idea that virtual world holds the power though which humankind can bring numerous dreams to reality. I wish this year too, Lakshya turns out to be a grand success with its theme “Envision”.
Khushvi Purohit as Convener, Marketing pointed out that “Lakshya believes in distinctiveness with respect to other college festivals by choosing a theme that needs prime attention of the people in the current stint.
