Talespin 2018, hosted by Pierian Spring, the English literary club was a unique take on the popular event, hosted to adjudge the best weavers of tales among the second-year students.
In a singular twist to the classic competition, the participants worked relay-style, in pairs, to spin a yarn around the ending phrase ‘What you seek is seeking you’. To pump up the contest and challenge the writers, random words and phrases were thrown in at regular intervals to be assimilated into the story.
The first writer in each pair penned the beginning of the story and was given the word ‘pluviophile’ to incorporate. After the lapse of twenty minutes, the second writer of each pair picked up the threads of the story, inserting the phrase ‘between the devil and the deep sea’ into their narratives. The compositions were once again passed to the first writers who brought their tales to a close, each with a unique interpretation of the ending phrase.
The resultant stories were a striking pastiche of two unique writing styles and tested the imaginative genius of the participants at a whole new level. The three pairs of writers who wielded their pen with greatest dexterity were, in order of placement:
- Samyuktha Iyer- II PPES O
Manaal Jahaan- II PPES O
- Ananya Manjunath- II HEPP N
Aruna- II HEPP N
- Rahul K S- II CAME L
Anmol- II CAME L
-Neha Susan Cherian

The commerce forum – Colossus held it’s very first event i.e ‘Service Launch’ on May 26. The event was held exclusively for 2nd PUC students. It was a thrilling event with a new experience for the students.
The participants had gathered in one of the rooms and were preparing intensely for the competition. Teams of 4 or 5 students were entitled with a task to bring up a new service or improve an already existing service. Along with it’s description, they were also required to provide a detailed explanation of their finance, marketing strategies and SWOT analysis to the judges. In order to get the glimpse of the entire service, the judges informed the students to make a video, print ad or a radio jingle. Each team presented their service explicitly. But after every presentation the judges interrogated about the feasibility of the service. After a lot of hustle the judges winded up the event by giving valuable feedback to all the teams. The results were declared the day after and was duly informed to all the participants. The results were :

The science forum welcomed the start of a fresh academic year by conducting an interesting series of activities in order to select its core committee for the upcoming year. The students opting for a place in this prestigious committee assembled in one of the classrooms on 18th May, and the selection process began with the students being split into teams of 5. The various activities that were conducted aimed at testing the all-round skills of students, from their communication to their spirit of teamwork; their creativity to their crisis management skills and thus ensured that the unique talents in every individual were brought out through one activity or the other. After much consideration by the teachers and previous members of the committee, around 18 students were shortlisted and were individually interviewed, in order to enable them to choose the right people who matched the criteria for the various posts in the forum. In this manner, the core committee and other committees of the Science forum were formed and are all set to take up the challenge of creating another successful and memorable year for the forum!

The first general quiz exclusively for 2nd PU was held on the 18th of May 2018 which was hosted by Neha Shetty, the student Coordinator of Sedes Minerva. The competition comprised over 50 enthusiastic quizzers and was divided into teams consisting of 3. There was a preliminary round and 6 teams made it to the finals.
The quiz started off with the quizmaster displaying around 20 questions for which answers had to be written down. The teams were eager to answer each question in order to make it to the finals. It was an inquisitive and nervous atmosphere as the questions asked were quite intriguing but this didn’t let down the spirits of the participants. The finals ended with a tie breaker between two teams competing for the 3rd place for which Mr. Arun Sir (Teacher Coordinator of Sedes Minerva) being the Pink Floyd fanatic dropped in a question which left the participants awestruck and could answer only half the question and eventually ended with both the teams sharing the title.
All in all Sedes Minerva has had a very optimistic and enthusiastic beginning indeed. As said by Aristotle “What’s well begun is half done” is what the first quiz achieved and we hope to have the same success in all competitions that we will be organising through-out the year. When one of the winners was asked about her experience she admitted to have immensely enjoyed it. She says “As the first quiz of the year, the event was truly a success. The questions were diverse, difficult yet were all from events around us. The team and the quizmaster were interactive and helpful. The atmosphere had a vibe of excitement. Overall, it was a fun event but most importantly taught us all something new”.
With a good head start Sedes Minerva strives to bring many more exhilarating quizzes.
