Justification time. We'd said earlier Pragathi Maha Vidyalaya had 'resolved' to lead. Well, they did just that, and, sadly, nothing much else.

There was a lot of action, but most of it off-stage. But the little that happened on stage, too, was just too stereotyped, and left nothing for the audience to do. And what does a bored audience do? It gets right into the spirit of things, literally.

But the participants really had a relatively easy time out there, with the audience chorusing the answers, much to the chagrin of the questioners. But one wondered why they never really did anything but smile sheepishly at this upstart crowd.

The participation was pretty enthusiastic, though, as over 500 students took part in the various events. During the valedictory function, the organizers quickly graduated this figure to the four-digit level, but we forgave them that.

The best events were the paper presentations on topics relating to m-Com and Mergers & Acquisitions. The winners were a group of two from the Icfaian Business School. Other formal games, dealing in all the factions of management education, were well received by those present. The stock market simulation game called Arth, which used indigenous software to create a virtual stock market, was easily the most popular.

The overall champs were the Hyderabad Central University students, who came as a huge team and won most of the informals such as Chupke Chupke (dumb charades) and Chehre pe Chehra (face painting).

But the valedictory function, which interrupted the Ranmanch (skits), was easily the longest, and did all but put the poor participants and the organizers, tired after a long day, to sleep with 4-5 absolutely boring speeches, each competing with the other in stretching his piece.

In fact, the prizewinners had to be later awakened to go on stage, when the prizes were announced. Prizes were given away by Mr. Venu (Deputy HR Manager - Satyam) and Prof. Sundaram (from the office of the Board of Education, OU).

But we heard a little bird say that the prizewinners were pretty sad because they "received only books" as prizes, and those, too, really common stuff. Wonder what happened to those grand prizes that were promised.
