The halls of CBS reverberated with the echoes of literary fanaticism when the students of MCODS clashed against each other in the clash of lexical prowess. The participants were divided into two tables, in this battle. The students were to speak for as long as they could without a pause, grammatical error or stutter. Other table members played the role of zealous grammar Nazis and raised objections, based on which points were awarded. The fun quotient of the event was increased by a lively audience. The event was held in 3 rounds – 2 prelims and one mega finale. The event was chaired by Dr. Anand K.M. (Dept. of Molecular biology).
