MastishK Reloaded !!!!!!!!!!

Mark Twain once said - "All you need in this life is ignorance and confidence; then success is sure."
This statement was very true when we launched MastishK ’04 last year. There was nothing to loose .... and I have always felt that last year's success was limited and not complete. We could never manage to get a single penny of sponsorship - though we got a lot of popularity during and after the event (Some coverage in newspapers and Arbit).

But this year as MastishK '05 unfolded slowly ... there was a big pressure on our team to retain the interest in B-school junta and retain our reputation to be revolutionizers in the B-school event arena. Last year, the very concept of launching a completely online event and that of having multiple simulation games on one platform was a novel concept - and so whatever we gave our audience, it was new. But this year the challenge was much bigger, ironically to beat our own performance; to come up with games much more novel in design than last year so that we can beat ourselves. A similar challenge also was there on the visual appeal - last year our site created great waves due to the visual appeal of consoles. The challenge again was to think out of the box, come up with a design that would beat all expectations.

There were times when I felt intimidated by the very challenges that lay ahead of my juniors - and I must confess that thoughts like "If they don't succeed..." did haunt me time and again. It was probably a mixture of my attachment with the event and this fear that made me visit the campus again and again to check up the progress of the team.

But today, I feel proud to say that I know the MastishK '05 team and some of the team members know me. MastishK’05 Team has proved once again (our motto in '04) - "If you refuse to accept anything but the best, you very often get it" (Somerset Maugham).
In the past few days M’05 Team has raised coups after another - cracking IMS and eBay for sponsorship, unleashing a fantastic Flash cum HTML front page (a dream we cherished last yr), and a splendid console; and most importantly the most splendid games.
All games are completely out of my imagination ... great concepts and a very well structured presentation. Notably the team has bridged a big gap that we had last year - a finance game - Investophile. Further still comes Vox Populi - an unique concept; I am sure no other B-school would even dare to come up with a concept as novel as this. But as George Bernard Shaw has said –
"The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable man persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore, all progress depends on the unreasonable man."
Very heartfelt congratulations from my side to the Mastishk ’05 team and best of luck for the coming days. If you are still wondering what all this sentimental gibberish is all about ??? See for yourself:
