Lodestar conducts India’s First Career Quiz, ‘The Great Indian Career Challenge’ for High School Students in Chennai

Chennai, Jan 24 2017: The Great Indian Career Challenge (GICC), India's first Career Quiz for high school

children conducted by Lodestar – a successful Career Guidance Companyheld its grand finale of its first edition

in Chennai, at Vidyodaya Girls Higher Secondary School, T Nagar.About 600 students, teachers and parents

from all over Chennai participated in the grand finale of GICC.

The most challenging career quiz that witnessed a great participation from top educational institutions to small

schools was triumphed by VarshaSenthil and Omeesha Krishnan from Vaels International School. The runners

up were AshwathBhargav and Vibin Sri Balaji from Prince Metriculation Higher Secondary School. All the

winners grabbed the total cash prize of Rs 60,000.

The prelim rounds for GICC kicked-off in the month of November and December and wereorganized at their

respective schools. It had an interesting participation of 80 high-schools and 15,000 high-school students. After

the prelims, top 8 students (4 teams of 2 each) from each school were selected to compete in the semifinals

and then top 6 teams from semiswere chosen for the grand finale.

The career quiz aims to break down traditional barriers and mind sets one comes across while choosing a

career. Regrettably, even parents advise children to pick traditional careers like engineering or medicine

because they appear to provide the job security.

However, most people are unaware of the huge universe of opportunity where there are over 250 career

options available, which can match a child’s true calling and aptitude. This first of its kind initiative aims to use

the platform of a quiz competition to make students aware of the plethora of options available, which in turn

can enable them to start planning towards a rewarding career.

Subodh Jindal, Co-Founder and COO of Lodestar said, “Through this quiz, we aim to reach out to the common

people and make them aware about the existing career opportunities a child can choose. We are

tremendously happy about the success in Bangalore, Chennai and Hyderabad and we plan to reach out to

other cities, shortly.”

Apart from Chennai, GICC was simultaneously conducted in Hyderabad as well, where 15,000 students from 90

schools participated. In August 2016, in Bangalorein its second edition, GICC saw the participation of 18,000

students of class 9th and 10th from around 150 schools in Bangalore and Mysore. 600 students qualified to the

grand finale where they competed for prizes of over Rṣ. 1 Lakh.

About Benelli
As often happens, the history of great industries is born in garages. In our case this is the Benelli
Garage”, Where, in 1911, the 6 Benelli brothers Giuseppe, Giovanni, Francesco, Filippo, Domenico
and Antonio, known as “Tonino”, repaired and manufactured motorcycle parts. In 1921 the
‘Velomotore’ was created: a single cylinder two stroke 75cc bike adapted to a bicycle frame and
the following year it was the turn of the 98cc ‘Motoleggera’, immediately appreciated by the
public of that time. The first real Benelli motorcycle, a 175cc model, ridden by Tonino, proved
immediately to be a winner in the world of competition. Here began a long list of glorious
moments, with more than 1000 victories in the Italian and European Championships and two
World Titles won in 1950 and 1969. Many legendary riders have ridden Benelli motorcycles.
Besides Tonino, the owner of the company, the Italian riders Ambrosini, Grassetti, Campanelli,
Provini, Pasohni, Villa and the internationals Saarinen, Hailwood and Carruthers.
At the end of the 60’s the last motorcycle of the family owned company was born; the Tornado
650 which developed 50 hp at 7000 rpm, and easily surpassed 170 km/h. Later the first
ownership change took place, but motorcycle production continued in Pesaro with the ground
breaking in line 6 cylinder 750 and 900cc Sei’s which were manufactured up until the early
1980’s. In 2001 the production of the first all new in-line triple powered range began, with the
fully faired supersport Tornado 899cc Limited Edition. The addition of the Tornado Naked Tre or
TNT for short, and subsequently the Tre-K in both 899 and 1131 cc variants meant that Benelli
was truly back in the market of large capacity sports motorcycles. Today Benelli is part of the
Qianjiang (QJ) Group, a corporation which produces more than 1.2 million two wheelers per
annum. QJ, wishing to respect the tradition of passion which has always guided the history of the
Italian brand, will continue manufacturing bikes in Pesaro, the traditional home of Benelli

The membership exam has two separate components: MRCS Part A and MRCS Part B (OSCE). Candidates must first pass Part A before attempting the Part B (OSCE) exam.


Part A is a multiple-choice question exam that is held three times per year; in January, April, and September.

Prof Cathal Kelly, CEO, Royal College of Surgeons, Ireland, said“The MRCS is a prestigious, internationally recognised quality standard. Holding this qualification demonstrates to colleagues, peers, and employers a surgeon’s knowledge, clinical skills and

commitment to his or her practice. I am delighted today to sign an agreement with Gleneagles Global Hospitals that will see the MRCS exam being delivered in Chennai. This

Prof. Mohamed Rela, Director & Head- Institute of Liver Disease & Transplantation, Gleneagles Global Hospitals, said,“It is an honour to be associated with the RCSI that in its existence has groomed so many world class surgeons. I am extremely happy that we at Gleneagles Global Hospitalsnow will be able to provide a platform for surgeons from our city to join the elite RCSI.”


Mr. Harish Manian, Regional Chief Operating Officer, Parkway Pantai, said, “While the RCSI have hosted the MRCS exam across some centres in India, it is for the first time that such an examination is coming to Chennai.  We at Gleneagles Global Hospitalsare very proud that the RCSI have chosen our facility to host the MRCS exams. According to current plans Part A of the examination will be conducted by RCSI in Chennai from 2017 onwards with the ambition to host the Part B(OCSE) examination from 2018.”
