MUDLIYAR TROPHY, named after the prominent orator Sir Arcot Ramaswamy Mudliyar, an oratorical festival of GCoEA, is organised annually under the Personality Development Section of Gymkhana.
Continuing the tradition of finding the young orators in the institute, this year also MUDLIYAR TROPHY was organized by students’ Gymkhana (P.D. Section). Stepping into its 55th year, the college witnessed cut-throat competition amongst the students of both groups (General category and First year category) in MUDLIYAR TROPHY 2019-20.
MUDLIYAR TROPHY podium witnessed many enthusiastic orators, the thunderous applause which mesmerized the entire arena, the authentic judges and many more. Definitely, this success is not a solo effort. It involves many helping hands. For the organisation of this edition of MUDLIYAR TROPHY, a team consisting 8 members worked punctiliously throughout the whole period. Members were selected on interview basis by the GYMKHANA team and approved by the faculty incharges of personality development section.
As usual, there was a separate category for the first year students in order to give more exposure to the new students. Participation in both the categories was strictly on the first-come-first-serve basis. A Google form was generated for the participation and was circulated among all the students. Maximum limit for number of participations in each event was declared with Google form and accordingly the registrations were taken.
