Independence Day Special: Essay Writing Competition!!

By: Team PenTastic
Written by Srutee Rout and Shirin Sonali

"Words are more furious than fire". The statement itself reflects that the words can stir a revolution in the bloods of an individual, especially if it flows down from a powerful weapon such as pen. Keeping that fact in mind, Cetadel organised an essay-writing competition on the occasion of Independence Day to motivate,encourage and inspire the students of CET to pen down their ideas on nationalist topics at a wonderful forum.
It was organized on 17th August in B-402 at 1 pm and was co-ordinated by Srutee Rout and Shirin Sonali . There was much keenness among the enthusiastic freshers as well as other contestants as they found the best platform to express their views and ideas on the given topics. The topics of the event were:

1. Is Gandhi Really "THE MAHATMA",We Think He Is ?
2. "Nationalism without liberation is a Monster." Describe in context to JNU Controversy.
3. "Nationalism is a great Menace." Describe keeping in view the present Kashmir situation.
4."Patriotism is the virtue of the vicious."

The topics were provocative enough to put the participants into deep thought which had them whirling their pens for sometimes.
Towards the end of the competition we had Shashwat Bhuyan from IGIT who had come to inform about the VICI Magazine which rolled out it's first edition in this month. VICI is a collaboration magazine of CET Bbsr, IIIT Bbsr, IGIT Sarang and VSSUT Burla. After the completion of the stipulated time,papers were given to our own Mrs Sangeeta ma'am for evaluation.She had a tough time selecting but finally....

The winners of the competition were:

1.First position - Yogesh Kumar (3rd year Computer Sc.Engineering)

2.Second position- Arbind Samal (1st year Civil)

3. Third position- Aman Prasad (1st yr Mechanical Engineering)

Such events truly showcase the rich literary culture of CET and CETADEL is the perfect stage. For the same,more fun,more events and more surprises are on the way!!
