The Last Firm Standing required the participants to tackle real world crisis situations amidst time crunch and was won by Anshul Aggarwal from Jamia Milia Islamia. The last competition of Day 1 was Unpossible Find Muck, a treasure hunt spread across two days. Winning teams were from Dyal Singh College (M) and Manav Rachna International College. Day 2 of Ecowaves 2016 started with Tragedy of the Uncommons – a debating type competition with two rounds. In the first round the participants presented the relevance of the ideas and theories of the economist allotted to them in the contemporary world. The second round of this competition was a moderated GD on the topic – ‘In the wake of colossal non-performing assets, the public sector banks should be de-nationalised’. Arihant Kothari of Hindu College bagged the first position. Quizzer’s Dilemma – predominantly an economics quiz and Marketing Midas – a case study competition followed. Ecowaves 2016 ended with Ecomystery – Clash of the Champions in which, all the winners of the 6 events came together to fight for the title of ‘Master of Ecowaves 2016’. Anshul Aggarwal from Jamia Milia Islamia, who also happened to win positions in two more competitions, defeated his opponents in four rounds ranging from policy making to fun events like interjections, to lift the grand Ecomystery Cup.
