XLRI, JAMSHEDPUR: The inauguration ceremony of the annual college fest of Xavier’s School of Management, Jamshedpur- Ensemble Valhalla 2022 was held on 4th of March 2022 in virtual mode. Continuing the tradition, the theme of the fest this year is ‘Realm of Dreams’- Build your own reality that instigates people to plunge into everything beyond ordinary.
The festival was officially launched by Bollywood star R Madhavan , who virtually addressed the XLRI fraternity along with the presence of college authorities and the students.

Emphasizing on the spirit of ‘do good; do well’, Mr. Madhavan stressed on the importance of manoeuvring life by upholding the values of compassion and respect and being a successful person rather than a successful professional.
The inaugural speech was followed by the release of the Ensemble Valhalla 2022 schedule, detailing the 30+ events and live performances by artists like Rahul Dua, Ash King, Javed Ali and Bhuwin Khursija for the 3-day fest from 4th-6th of March.
