A Heritage Not Worth

Heritage Institute of Technology hosted Dakshh 2009, their annual techno-management festival. As for me the competition comprised of only 2 events : C Debugging and C Coding!

The level of Questions in the prelims really made me think, wow! But the finals disappointed me a lot. The debugging event was ill-organised (we were actually brought to the venue 10 minutes late, but still managed to come third) and the coding event was pretty strange. Strange in the sense, that the 2 questions they gave could not be solved in an hour. The first one was tough (around 1 hour should be given for that) and the next was easy (around 20-25 mins.). For us, we erred in judgement and started off with the first and as a result could not complete any! Our plight was shared by 2 other VERY GOOD coding groups from IEM, Kolkata as the first prize was taken by an unprecended guy from St. Thomas.

Lucky for him though!

I really wish a college like HIT, could have done much better and a miserable prize money slab of 1500, 1000, 500 rupees.
