PRESS RELEASE

THE GRAND TREASURE HUNT

  • Date October 14, 2013

The rules were simple- read the clues, collect the diyas and ultimately find that precious gold coin. Of course, figuring out where and how to hide a hundred and five diyas around our college was a different matter altogether, i.e. the Press Club’s headache; but it was quite enjoyable, to say the least. Fun to organise, an exciting search and most of all, a sheer delight to watch our fellow batch mates scramble around, in search of diyas, trying to make sense of the clues that we had so cleverly hidden (or so we thought). There were twenty one distinct trails, leading to five diyas each and ultimately a faculty or a council member who would hand over a gold coin to the team. The clues were hidden in places as inconspicuous as the cushion in ‘the usual place’ or the lamp in one of the lecture rooms, and the clues leading them there were at times as ordinary as mere directions, or mind boggling with references to statistics, movies and even poetry! From the word go, the forty two participants were focused on their hunt, searching frantically for their respective diyas, in the basement, the terrace and even under flower pots, trying their very hardest to determine the exact location of the next clue. Survival of the quickest was the key here, and they surely did not disappoint. With many teams successfully completing the trail, it was a tough call to ultimately determine the winner. However, there was a team that eventually walked away with the one thousand rupees cash prize, Sankalp Singh Kalra and Smriti Anund, much to the dismay of the runners up who had to settle for canteen vouchers. It was truly an enjoyable event and one that definitely filled the atmosphere with excitement and festive spirit, weeks before Diwali.
