In between other panel members chipped in with their respective areas and elaborated on it in their own unique way.
To make it all the more lively Prof. Rajesh Madhvan(the co-ordinator) made it a sort of an prepared extempore wherein the panel members were to discuss the topics without the help of any  supporting documents(PPTs or excel) in an open sitting arrangement(as clear in the picture).
It was a great learning experience for all the Panel members and also for the audience, who became witness to what was called as “ a real great attempt and really worthy inputs” by the Director.
The entire discussion came to an end after a quick cross question round from the audience side.
