Zephyrix07 --> Not a breeze.. But a Tornado!!!

We had been waiting for this for a long long time. The symposium season had begun in most of the colleges and we, the CSE dept had planned to make it large this time!!! And the ironical fact was that we were the last department to get started with the symposium work because of the simple reason that we were the last in our department to conduct symposiums. This was the talk for the past week or so.. ECE department Utkrishta 07 had broken the previous Sairam record of 206 participants which was held by the CSE dept some 2 yrs back by amassing 305 participants. But then, this record dint seem to last too long as the EEE dept Xantella 07 broke that record within the space of 2 days by accounting for around 350 participants. Apart from these 2 departments, the other departments dint fare much as the mech dept totalled around 100, IT dept around 250 and ICE dept with a miserable tally of 70 students. So... Finally it was the biggest day for us.. What will happen?? Will we be able to retain our top spot by beating the EEE dept?? There was enough confidence in us that we would total atleast 500 students but we wernt that confident to reach that milestone. So.. The stage was set for what was going to be the biggest day in the history of Sairam... No one expected this..

Date : 25-08-07
Venue: Sairam Engg college
It was a hot saturday... We were undergoing a strenuous week b4 that saturday as all events' preparations were in full swing.. The 10 events which were Paper Presentation, Software Presentation, Quiz, Dumb-C, Adzap, Web-designing, Debugging, Programming, Gaming and Informalz.. We were working on this for days together.. And the important part of the day, the Presentation being taken care of by Kudi, Mahesh, Prof, Ragaa and SPB was expected to be a good one as this was supposed to be the last presentation to be done by them.. So, they were sure of making it big this time.. They were working for it day and night( day and night here means the night before the symposium and the day of the symposium).. This is the usual way in which they do it.. Always at the eleventh hour and always get lauded for their work.. So... Romba izhukkudho??? Well.. Will make it a bit shorter...
When we entered the college, there were already around 250 students getting registered for the events. So, we thought that was the end... EEE had tallied more than us.. But that was not to be... It was the beginning of the greatest day... The Presentation was the best they had done and rightly so, was applauded and cheered by every soul in the crowd.. Suddenly at around 10pm, the Gaming and web-designing labs were being flooded with participants.. And slowly, next in line was the debugging event which got its regular crowd and slowly started to flood as well... Then, the quizzing and then the programming team.. All were getting buzzed up with work and the events were starting to attract more and more crowd.. Meself being in the dumb-c commitee was meanwhile looking around for some groups who may be interested in dumb-c and adzap... No sign of anyone yet.. Oh.. I thought... Was it gonna flop?? No was the answer...
At around 10.30am, a group came in which gave me a huge sigh of relief... And slowly but steadily, all the event co-ordinators were being kept busy by the participants... We received a total of 49 teams ie 147 participants.. Adzap received 23 teams ie a total of around 120 participants.. Quiz 250, Debugging 300 and gaming around 250 participants... And at around 11.30am we came to know that the official count of our symposium was exceeding 600 students and there were many more participants arriving in the buses... So, finally, all prelims were over at around 1pm.. Back-Breaking work for all event co-ordinators who did so with atmost glee and satisfaction... And by the time we started the finals, we received the information that the total count for our symposium was 822... And the rest of what happened is History!!! The finals of all events ended at around 4.30pm... Yoyo, the Big Fm RJ then conducted some sort of RJ hunt which was welcomed by the crowd... Then, after the customary mokkais from the big guns of our colleges which incidentally includes the HOD mam's speech which was unusually long(as well as sentimental), it all ended at around 7.15pm... We caught the last bus where we encountered sum minor hiccups with the driver... Not to 4get the photo session that we had with our dear HOD mam... Finally, after having sum juice and snacks, we started back to our homes with our hearts full of... (No.. Not food... But ultimate happiness and satisfaction)... We had made it!!! Zephyrix 07 ---> The biggest hit of 2007!!! Enga getha niroobichitomla!!! LIC heightu CSE dhaan weightu!!!!!!! ECE chairman Arvind's words after i informed him about our success " Machi!! Naanum CSE la irundhrukanum da".. This statement in itself proved the might of the CSE dept.. So, our final symposium ended in d most grand manner... So... ALL WAS WELL!!! All was extraordinarily well indeed!!! So, Zephyrix meaning a Cool breeze came out to be the most terrific tornado and swept all depts by its might!!! Thanks to all those who made this happen!!!
