End of dream run …

Okay …

First, the bad news …

We didn’t make it to the final 6 teams of the Software Design of the Imagine Cup …

It’s okay …

I think our presentation was the best we had given till now and the software was also working properly …

Only, the idea didnt click well with all the other international judges …

I’m happy for the fact that we atleast made it all the way here … and got to present our solution …

Would have been really depressed if we had got stuck up at Mumbai itself …

On the bright side, we still have one year to go … and besides, winning World two years in a row would be kinda hard anyways …

So, we’ll just win it next year … promise …

The other teams to make it were Japan, China, Greece, Slovenia, Russia and one another team which I don’t kinda remember now …

I seriously have no idea what the other solutions are … so, I have no basis for comparison … but we’ll come to know about it tomorrow …

Anyways, the entire ceremony was like an Academy Award dinner kinda thing …

We had round table reservations and all the short films were shown on the screen and we had a 9 course “Vegetarian” Japanese dinner … which honestly, I could not consume …

Nothing personal … but except the noodles, which I ate with a pair of chop sticks for the first time ( Yay !!! ), couldnt think of eating anything else …

Most of the veggie stuff … was … just bamboos … It tastest okay … no taste actually … something like boiled wood …

Anyways, as soon as the entire thing got over, we hit the Indian restaurant and packed some desi khana …

Thats all for tonight … just before I push off … picture of the day … clap, clap, clap !!!

We’ll hopefully be riding that thing tomorrow …

The giant ferris wheel … second in the world only to the one in London …

Comes with its own Roller Coaster …Me thinks, Microsoft India is going to pick up the tab on this ;)

    I’m glad your team could reach Japan to compete. And I’m sure you’d have learnt a lot this time. You still have another chance, all the very best for the Imagine Cup next year :)
