An experience today and yesterday established the significance of experience over energy.In a close fought match on the battlefield of basketball , the just assembled team (that too with great effort!!)of TIPS defeated 1st year MBBS students by 18 to 13.TIPS stands for teachers , interns, postgraduates and staff of KMC manipal.
Two enthusiastic interns or say too enthusiastic interns reached the court on scheduled time and then they called up few people to increase the no. of team members!!The criteria for being in the team was the ‘will’ of that particular person!!Interested candidates came in 10 minutes and the team was formed.
Like happens in every sport, just before starting the match we-the team mates- gathered at one place ; not to decide strategy but to know each other because all of us were from different dept!!Isn’t it interesting?Too enthu interns briefed us about the rules we needed to follow be cause we were unaware!!
The game went like this-
Possession of ball 60% in favor of 1st years.
Court play 70% in our court
Overall domination 70% in favor of 1st year
Results-just slightly in favor of us.
The same case happened in football where tips defeated 1st year by 2-1
with figures nearly similar to above.
What can one infer out of it.Where does the ‘experience’ (not just of a particular game but in a broader sense) stand?!
