The ‘Summer Saga’ Contest – 60 Days as an Intern

Update : 21st July 2013 : The contest is now over and the results are out!

You can read about the results here!


Monsoon is here and the rains have blessed most parts of the country already. However, we are hunting for those gems from the great summer of 2013. Everyone has a great story to tell this summer. There were those who beat the heat by staying in an AC office staring at their excel sheets and those who traveled in by lanes of small towns and villages in the sweltering 45 degree heat. There were those who were sent overseas and those who tasted life in a start-up.

Everyone has a story. Do you have one? If yes, start typing. Now. The winner gets a cash prize of Rs.15,000. The runner-up gets a cash prize of Rs.5000

The best 5 experiences will be published as separate articles on and will win a Calvin & Hobbes comic book! It will also serve as a great accomplishment on your resume!

We will also declare the ‘Campus with the most Interesting Interns’ based on the entries from all the campuses. (Minimum number of entries for a campus to be considered for this title – 10)

The entries will be judged on two main parameters : 1) Usefulness for future readers 2) How interesting it is

It will be preferred if these aspects are covered in the write-up :

1. Brief outline of the project

2. Most challenging aspect of the job

3. Most enjoyable aspect of the job

4. Greatest learning



Now, we know that there are confidentiality issues. We understand it and it will not be held against you if  you choose to omit some details.

If you are scared of being heckled by the HR or your placements committee, we have a solution for that as well! We give you the option of writing an entry anonymously. You will have to register but before submitting your entry you can click on the ‘Anonymous’ tab. You will still be eligible for the prize and your name will be declared publicly only if you wish. The winning ‘anonymous’ entry will be announced. (The identity of the anonymous poster will be verified by our team in private)

Try to keep your experiences as real as possible. No word Limit.
