The Department of Commerce, Lady Shri Ram College for Women, held its annual academic meet- Comquest, on October 16, 17 and 18 and saw a footfall of over 500 students from Delhi University as well as universities from other parts of the country.  While most of the competitive events saw an overwhelming participation, the talk on bitcoins and the panel discussion on FDI also drew quite a few.

The inaugural event, the Bitcoin talk delivered by Amit Bharadwaj, was an engaging one where students and teachers like had their 101 queries about cleared. Mr. Bharadwaj spoke about what bitcoins are and how they work, that they follow the concept of P2P (people to people).

Buillon, the Mock-Stock, also held on the 16th, had participants trading in 50 teams of two. The model to be followed was the traditional one, before technology came into place. The panel discussion, FDI: India and the in-between, saw a heated debate between Dheeraj Mathur from  PWC, Krishan Malhotra from Amarchand, Archana Nigam from the Ministry of Commerce,  P.K. Purvar from MTNL and Kavita Krishnan from AIPWA.

The second event on Day 2, The Evangelist, saw 26 teams of four, use their PR and Marketing skills to bring brands that had recently seen bad days out from their current positions and market them for good. The top positions were taken by CBS and DTU and SRCC.

On Day 3, the Department held Entrepedia- the B-Plan event and Quizinga- the Biz Quiz. This event, too, was won by a CBS team. The final event, Quizinga, hosted by quizmaster, Kunal Savarkar, again saw an overwhelming response in spite of being a niche quiz. The quiz was won by a CBS team with an NSIT team as runners-up.

[email protected]; Alankrita is a student of Journalism at Lady Shri Ram College for Women. Technology is one thing that terrifies her and at the helm of a good old newspaper is where she hopes to be one day. Reading, writing and holidaying (not necessarily in that order) are her favourite things to do. If not a journalist, she would be a politician, as goes the trend.
