Kuwait Times - - WHAT’S ON -

NAFO MAE - Rem­i­nis­cence - 2015, which was con­ducted on Fri­day 20th, Novem­ber, 2015, at the In­dian Com­mu­nity School (Se­nior Branch), Salmiya, turned out to be a hugely suc­cess­ful and skill­fully con­ducted out­stand­ing pro­gram which tested the aca­demic bril­liance and lead­er­ship skills of a pru­dently hand­picked group of highly tal­ented In­dian stu­dents in Kuwait. Af­ter com­plet­ing reg­is­tra­tion for­mal­i­ties, a brief ori­en­ta­tion ses­sion was pro­vided in or­der to in­tro­duce the vi­sion, mis­sion and rules and reg­u­la­tions of the MAE con­test.

Af­ter the ori­en­ta­tion ses­sion, the con­test was of­fi­cially de­clared open by NAFO Pa­tron, Vi­jay Karail and the con­test pro­ceed­ings started at 09:45 am.

All reg­is­trants were clus­tered into three groups (A, B and C) through a lot sys­tem. The com­pe­ti­tion was ar­ranged at three dif­fer­ent lo­ca­tions so as to ease­fully, but pro­fes­sion­ally con­duct the test­ing se­quences. The con­test sys­tem in­cluded four lev­els of gru­el­ing pro­cesses which were eval­u­ated by a very prom­i­nent and au­then­ti­cated group of 13 Judges. First round ex­am­ined the In­no­va­tion Skill of the con­tes­tants; sec­ond round as­sessed their Or­a­tory Skill, third round judged their De­bate Skill, and then a fi­nal round of Lead­er­ship Skill test. Three top­pers from each group en­tered the fi­nal round, where their Lead­er­ship Skills were ex­clu­sively tested. The pro­fi­cient and stylish skills of all con­tes­tants who par­tic­i­pated in all rounds were im­mensely ad­mired by both the Judges and the pub­lic. The Or­a­tory Skill test round which dis­pensed with the ‘Life His­tory of His Ex­cel­lency Padmab­hushan Man­nathu Pad­man­ab­han’, was glo­ri­ously pre­sented by all con­tes­tants, and some of them grace­fully com­mented that they got an exclusive op­por­tu­nity to learn and talk about such vi­sion­ary so­cial re­former. The whole con­test event took al­most a day to com­plete, which be­gan at 10:00am and ended at 5:30pm.

Fi­nal re­sults were de­clared in front of an en­thu­si­as­tic crowd in­clud­ing Judges, con­tes­tants and their par­ents, and NAFO fam­i­lies. Sudarsan Rathna Ku­mar (In­dian Cen­tral School) was de­clared as the First Prize Win­ner, Gay­a­tri Nair (In­dian Com­mu­nity Se­nior School, Salmiya) as Sec­ond Prize Win­ner, and An­jali Su­nil Chacko (Fa­ha­heel Al Watana­iah In­dian Pri­vate School, DPS) as Third Prize Win­ner. As a com­ple­men­tary ges­ture, the con­test se­lected the fol­low­ing win­ners, which was ac­cord­ing to their ag­gre­gate marks scored for each round, Su­darsanRathna Ku­mar (In­dian Cen­tral School) as the Best Innovator, again same Su­darsanRathna Ku­maras the Best Or­a­tor, and Mo­ham­mad Mishal (In­dian Com­mu­nity School, Khai­tan) as the Best De­bater.
