2019- yet another year goes by (well , we are almost there)….. We just about managed to squeeze in the 2019 edition of the aforementioned Cup, just as the rains have begun petering out.
Zedd Batch, (the one and only), had earlier decided on a bigger and shinier trophy this year onwards, from its humble beginnings as a teensy weensy little cup instituted by the then Warden in 2013 (no guesses) with a cash prize (beer money), to now figuring in the inter Batch points tally for the overall Championship (thanks to Atul’s efforts).
On 24 Aug 2019 we witnessed a closely contested match between D3 and E3 batches. Lots of effort was put in by the ‘bhai’ batch [this is the terminology for the batch immediately senior to the freshers (F3)] , however they could not withstand the aggression and ballplay of a more experienced D3 (who are winning the trophy for the second time running)!
