We (Me and Dhruv) were selected to attend an International Conference in Annamalai University, Chidambaram and present our paper and b-plan.
We were totally excited about it not for attending the conference but it was more like a family trip , we along with my parents and his mum set to Chidambaram on 17th and were there by the evening after a bit of photo sessions in the sunflower field on the way and we had the evening to practice our presentations which we were to deliever the next day.
Our B-plan was the first one we had to present which went on pretty fine but ended in a tie between us and another participant and for reasons unknown (we assume it to be the age factor- he was around 60 ) he was awarded the best presentation award ..
With a bit of gloom we headed to the hall in which we had to present the next paper .. on entering the hall the first impression was that it is going to be even harder to get an award here and fortunately or unfortunatelt there was jus one prize in each category . And here again we were the last participants to present our paper ...
And with everything done .. with the judges on to the stage .. we were in for a complete surprise when we heard " The best presentation award goes to Shalini G and Dhruva Prakash" .. I actually had to contain me from jumping on the stage .. It really made our entire trip fun filled and worth our energy spent :) :)
I don' think it would have been possible for us to have been in this joyful moment hadn't it been for our parents who were willing to accompany us and especially my mom who was there to help us in each step of our presentation .. Thank you so much ! :)
