By perseverance and consistent efforts, FootPrints, which started with a paper presentation event in 2001 inaugurated by
Shri. Narayan Murthy, has now become the largest technical fiesta of Gujarat. FootPrintsX7 gave a platform to young minds from all over
India to showcase their technical skills. Robowar, car race, structure development events, coding events, weaving competitions and events

Teamwork is an important buzzword in any field. We are a group of people with various complimentary skills, working together towards a common vision. Our working together generates performance greater than the sum of our individual performances. Our team has a variety of talented minds which helps each of us to widen our horizons of knowledge. We work together, we care for each other and we laugh together turning each day into a memory to be cherished later. After the journey of a year the team no more remains a team but becomes a huge family. We celebrate every achievement together which increases our morale. Inspite of having friction due to difference in our viewpoints, we compromise to prevent the downfall of our team. Each of us puts in selfless efforts without keeping a competitive attitude as there is no "I" in "Us".

Apart from these you would need some minions looking desperately for their master and would do anything that their master says.The best way to recruit them is to use social media.
