Thanks Udit Saraff for conveying this Brilliant news.
Kumar Anand (BMD-05) and Lara Lobo (PMIR-06), both in Standard Chartered Bank (India), gave a new flavor to our "Bummer-IR" bonding by winning the Microsoft Corporate Challenge 2006. They won a booty each of a jewelled Mont Blanc pen (worth Rs. 1 lac) and a Dolce & Gabbana (limited edition) Gold-plated MotoRazr V3i mobilephone.
The event was a mix of AXN's "Amazing Race" and Star World's "The Apprentice" and got them going in Kerala countryside with cross country running & cycling, rowing, puzzle cracking, deciphering, map navigation, stock market simulation...blah..blah. These guys were even required to make a boat out of bamboo sticks/tubes and row across a lake as well as the Kerala backwaters.
The 35 participating corporates included the likes of Barclays Bank, ICICI Securities, ICICI Bank, J P Morgan Stanley and a host of others like Unilever, Infosys and our formidable Indian Navy.

Way to go Kumar and Lara for keeping the XL spirit high and flying beyond campus boundaries and into the corporate world...!! Your golden days are not over yet..;)
