Rejected candidates then started tussling over the judgment, and thus trying to vitiate the tranquil ambience. Later, with the help of police, they were were ostracised from the campus. Now, the competition was among top 100. They were given a common dish to prepare. Everybody did their best. Now the time had to come to announce the result.
