The first event of Rostra’14, MARCOS, was bound to capture the imaginations of the participants and the audience alike. It gave a chance to the students to use their imagination combined with their communication skills to bring out the best in them. It featured participation from 8 teams of 4 members each. Each team was divided into two parts. Two members from each team were invited on the stage to watch a video or a picture series and the other members were asked to wait outside the stage area. A time span of 45 seconds was then given to the members after watching the video or pics, to analyse it and explain it to the other members in front of the judge. The members initially outside the stage area were then asked to explain the video to the judges and the audience as conveyed to them by their other two members. This competition was judged by Dr.S.K.Tiwari, a recipient of the Thomson Foundation Scholarship at London School of Printing, London, UK and also an FCO-University of Wales Postgraduate Research Scholarship at the Center for Journalism Studies, University of Wales, Cardiff, U.K. It was truly a great start to an overwhelming two days of Rostra’14.
