Stu­dents from as many as 14 col­leges in the city and the sub­urbs thronged the cam­pus of SIES Ju­nior Col­lege in Nerul to par­tic­i­pate in a quiz com­pe­ti­tion on Satur­day.

The com­pe­ti­tion, a part of the an­nual pro­gramme, ZEAL, was called Brain­storm. Teams com­peted against each other over ques­tions re­lated to top­ics such as cur­rent af­fairs, In­dian history and geography in dif­fer­ent rounds. Stu­dents of Jaipuriar Ju­nior Col­lege, San­pada, won the com­pe­ti­tion.

The quiz com­pe­ti­tion was fol­lowed by ‘sur­vival of the fittest’, a sports event. It tested the phys­i­cal and men­tal en­durance of stu­dents. A to­tal of thirty teams, con­sist­ing five mem­bers each, par­tic­i­pated in this event. It was a chain game where the un­fit teams got knocked out.

A cul­tural pro­gramme with a theme on the rich cul­tural her­itage of In­dia brought the event to an end.

the or­gan­is­ing com­mit­tee.

“We try to do some­thing new and i nno­va­tive ev­ery year, which could also en­hance the skills of the stu­dents and par­tic­i­pants.

Stu­dents en­thral the au­di­ence with their per­for­mance at the SIES Ju­nior Col­lege in Nerul dur­ing the func­tion.
