Did you ever have that strong and constant feeling of desire for an item which was kept on a special aisle, to make it look pretty and attractive in the supermarket? Did you go fight with your parents to buy it just because you didn’t have enough pocket money? Well, no more. Young Entrepreneurs Society (YES), Shaheed Bhagat Singh College, is organizing a one of a kind bidding competition. In the YES Smuggling Tunnel, you can buy any item with the virtual money given to you. And no, don’t limit your desires to only that item. Need a T.V.? Get it for 500 maybe. Looking for a Bugatti Veyron? Buy it for 8000 maybe. In fact, in the YES Smuggling Tunnel, you are a millionaire. Your pockets will be full of virtual green gold to satisfy all your materialistic desires in a simulated environment.
You think this is not enough? You may be able to own a military grade Rocket Launcher or a Van Gogh painting. You’re thinking that all this sounds like a cake walk. Don’t be mistaken. Just like the real world, the YES Smuggling Tunnel doesn’t give out things that easy. What you definitely would have to do is BID, fight for the product of your taste in a bidding war with contenders of other colleges and make sure the product you want is just yours.
Still thinking this is not enough? Not worth the effort? Well, if you manage to follow all the rules and overcome the challenges of this competition then, it’s your pathway to a cash prize of Rs. 5,000 that you might just win. Have you already made up your mind on making these 5000 yours? Wondering about something else now? What are the rules? How do I go about it? What can be the challenges, hurdles? Wait wait wait.
