Its an inter college competition between postgraduates of medical and pharmacy colleges under manipal university. 6-8 minutes of presentation on any of the recent developments in the subject, followed by question answer session till total of 10 minutes. substantiality of the topic , presentation skills, clarity of facts and lastly defense ; are the criteria considered for prizes. Initially 6 candidates are screened from each college which makes a total of 18 to compete in final. The one held on 23rd of march 2009 was my second appearance in the finals. These time however, I managed to clinch the 3rd place. In academic competitions I haven't been an achiever though I put good effort (at least I think so). So a win here brought me a great feeling of pleasure.
Well, on the same day I was exhausted to think anything else but fresh next morning, I literally drowned into philosophy. I flashed back into 25 years of my life to recollect the moments when I felt like happiest person in the world. Surprisingly I could remember only 3 to 4 in the whole 25yrs!! I don't think many people will have more than that. Well , blessed with the optimistic attitude , I decided to think more about next 25 rather than spent 25 and try doubling these type of moments. Anyway, philosophy stays at its place but these update was a great learning experience.
