What is JIM?

JIM stands for Jamboree Indaba Moot.

Jamboree 
Jamboree was a name given by Baden Powell to the first International gathering of scouts at Olympia, London, in 1920. When asked, "Why Jamboree?" Baden Powell replied "What else would you call it?"
Indaba 
a Zulu word, means gathering of chiefs The first World Indaba was held at Gilwell Park, in Essex, the training ground for Scout Leaders, in 1952.
Moot 
Moot was again suggested by Baden Powell. It comes from the old English meaning gathering of young men for discussion concerning the affairs of the community.

Objective

The event was organized to mark the 100 Anniversary of Dharmaraja College (1887 - 1987).[3]
