“The pursuit of truth and beauty is a sphere of activity in which we are permitted to remain children all our lives.”
– Albert Einstein.
Life is a pursuit, and everyone is pursuing something or the other. Some are busy pursuing happiness, some recognition and some the absolute truth. It’s the pursuit of that “something” which keeps us active all our lives.News Junction club-conducted their first event – “Tatva 1.0- the pursuit for absolute truth” on the 21st of August. This event was particularly designed to test the participant’s memory retention power, reasoning skills clubbed with a bit of knowledge of the important national and international events. Each prospective participant needed to apply in teams of two.
The spectacular response for the event was quite evident from the fact that around 70 participants turned up for the event. There were three rounds in total. The first two being the elimination rounds.The first round was called “Crosswordz” wherein the teams had to browse through two A4 sheets filled with all the current news and events in just 10 minutes. The teams had to retain the facts mentioned and thereafter solve a “Crossword”.
The second round was called “Tatva”, where the teams had to identify if a particular fact was true or false. The cumulative scores of the first two rounds were taken to screen teams for the final round. Only six teams went on to the final rounds.The final round turned out to be the most exciting part of the event. Each team was assigned a topic on which they had to frame five different questions, and then present it to the opponents.The winners of the event were- Bhumit Patel and MiteshPatwa. The runners-up -Priyank Sharma and Paras.
