ManipalBlog has started a weekly detective story contest since last evening. The first story was about a thief in the Nehru Block hostelin the Manipal University campus. The winner of this contest was Nitish Garg. We had a 3 question interview with him.
Q1. Why do you like ManipalBlog?
Nitish – Because it is informative, interesting, funny and keeps me updated about the activities happening in and around Manipal.
Q2. Who is your favourite detective?
Nitish – CP Pradyuman from CID *chuckles*, Because he can solve cases by using Flemming’s Right Hand Rule 😛 . Jokes Apart, It is of-course Sherlock Holmes.
Q3. Why is he your Favourite detective?
Nitish – Because he solves mysteries by logical reasoning, has extra-keen powers of observation, master in disguise, knows about weapons and martial-arts, And the use of forensic science in his investigations.
The solution to the “Case of the Hostel thief” : The correct answer is AMIT. The caretaker was just doing his job by asking Philip for an alibi in the last half and hour which is a safe time limit by assumption. Thanks for participating people!
The next one is not going to be so easy! cheers 🙂
