Sreenidhi Institute of Science & Technology is organising its annual literary fest Odyssey 2008, on 8th March, at its college campus in Ghatkesar. Conducted by Vox Populi to promote oratory skills and its literary theme, Odyssey is full of different creative events with startling formats to bring out that spirit of adventure in the participants:
In the prelims the event is called Extempore, while in the finals, it's Hostile Crowd - a question-and-answer round where questions will be thrown by the audience and judges. Topics will be announced on the day of the event.
It is named Group Debate for the prelims and Flip-Flop for the finals. In group debate, the participant has to choose his stance and start fighting. In the finals, it's the same old argument drama, but the participants have to flip their stance every moment.
It is called One-On-One Debate during the prelims, and the name changes to Cliff Hanger during the finals. During the prelims, the participant has lots to argue, and has do it himself. In the finals, the participant and his competitor are hanging by a cliff. It is only God who can save just one of him. He has to prove himself verbally and convince God to save him.
Just A Minute is a regular event for the prelims, with some spicy fundas added for the finals.
