Finally it's arrived.A dream that began three years ago has finally come true after a number of roadblocks.I'm talking about "KURUKSHETRA",the technical festival of College of Engineering,Guindy,that is to be held in 2007,early in the month of January.

There are prizes worth about Rs.9 lakhs,to be taken away.This would bear testimony to the magnitude of the fest.About 7000 students from all over the country are expected to take part.And the events are open to corporates also.

Events lined up for the fest include quizzes like Business Quiz,Lonewolf main quiz,sports quiz and Math quiz.Apart from this there are other events like Rocketry,Robotics,Gamindrome,AeroModelling,Innovate,Contraption,Informals and an exhaustive list,details of which you can find HERE.

Apart from these,there will be guest lectures by eminent personalities like Dayanithi Maran ,Union Minister for Communications and IT and Lakshmi Narayanan,CEO of Cognizant Technology Solutions.

The "battlefield" would be the hallowed grounds of Anna University.The fest being the first of its kind in the institution,questions have been raised about whether the fest would be successful.Says Praseed,one of the heads of CEG Technical Forum(which is the student body conducting the fest), "Most technical fests,such as those in NITs, have had successful debuts.We expect the same in our case too."
