Who says IIT students are all about extensive study hours and scoring good grades? A student of Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur, proved that IITians are not just smart but cool as well by designing a video for their college in Game of Thrones theme setup.
Prateek Srivastava, the conceptualizer of the video, has posted the video on YouTube. It is a great fusion of the original theme and various aspects of the infrastructure of Kharagpur. It presents the college’s animated campus in a Game of Thrones like fashion with the show’s cult tune by Ramin Djawadi playing in the background. The video opens with the quote by Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru.
The video is a journey through the IIT campus, houses similar to the show’s introduction to Westeros and beyond the Narrow Sea to the further depths of the fictional world the show offers.
Partha Pratim Chakrabarti, Director, IIT Kharagpur, also shared the video on Facebook and his social media post said, “IIT KGP Students express their creativity and passion for their alma mater. Experience and Relive the joy of learning and becoming.”
Prateek Srivastava introduced his video on YouTube saying that it’s not going to be the familiar Game of Thrones experience but is a beautiful depiction of the campus of IIT Kharagpur.
