DAKSH 08-THE BEST

Daksh-'come,learn,get dakshified' ,read their caption.....sounded too confident .With the firm belief that too much of build up would result in big flops and having experienced this in many colleges ,I decided to go to this particular techfest.With our paper selected and frnds accompanying us for various events the trip was awesome.When we reached Tanjore on the 26th morning ,I actually expected some volunteer to guide us...I was happy noone was der..my guess about buildups would never go wrong i supposed.The fact that we were the only passengers in the bus that carried us to SAASTRA added to my assumptions.The next 2 days was the time for me to understand that my predictions never always were right.
It was around 6 in the morning when we entered the campus,and we immediately spotted the Hospi Desk .The first impression lasts forever.I should say I was absolutely impressed by the girls in the desk-professionally dressed with elegance,charming and more importantly with a cheerful spirit that attracted me the most.The registration procedure went hassle free with me staring at the girls throughout.We were guided to our room where we were supposed to stay for the next 2 days.I was pretty sure that we would be a given an old ,abandoned room with dust and spiders.This was shattered the moment we entered the huge,gigantic hostel.The room number 97 which was allocated to us was absolutely terrific.
Huge enough to accomodate atleast 15 members of the maximum size,thats mine...very clean bathroom and toilets ,24hrs of water supply ,lots of power sockets ,4 fans ,great ventilation ,blankets,beds and pillows etc etc..more impressive was the strategic placement of the PR desk from where all announcements were made.It was erected in the centre of the college campus with loudspeakers weaving through the entire campus.Wherever you are u get to hear the important announcements.That sounds simple ,but it was vital coz we need not have to run allover to get to know the venues,results etc.
The amount of fun we had that day venturing around the campus ,playing cards,shouting around ,etc etc would require numerous posts to elucidate.After a day of rest and fun we got dressed up for our presentation.The event venue was an absolute spectacle.I had presented papers in much bigger and crowded venues but the ambience here was so nice.I must mention about the event coordinator of Crank(our event) here..ever smiling,ever enthusiatic,very responsible etc etc...helped us a lot to install our softwares ,adjust our timings etc...forgot his name though...guys like this i feel can single handedly hold up the image of your techfest.Even if the hospitality had been bad,I would have given full marks to Daksh for the sake of this guy.I felt as if we were friends for many days.
There was activity everywhere at Daksh.Donno how ppl at SAASTRA managed to organise this much of events and handle them without confusion.We won in many events and the certificates and cheque were given very promptly ,once again by the good looking girls at the PR desk.I was happy to win but more happy to had been a part of Daksh.I felt other colleges should actually learn a lesson or two from Daksh,.At the end I should say 'I was Dakshified'....
