Ms.Preeti Agrawal and Ms. Ritu Rajgharia(MBA Students-Taxila Business School)
Mr. Ganesh Singh and Mr. Nayan Shukla(Taxila Business School)

The day was 5th of March. We had send two teams from Taxila Business School-Jaipur in the hopes of making a mark at the Crucible event happening at Jaipur. Though I had not set my hopes too high, I was pretty confident about that our students would surely learn , because the primary opponents in Rajasthan were BITS-Pilani teams themselves. But fate has its games.
