“If you can count your money, you don’t have a billion dollars”
– J. Paul Getty
Often the great philosophers of the world have preached about the evils of money and
wealth, but today in the 21 st century the race to be the richest is the only race that matters.
You may have the greatest of ideas but your dream for a company can never begin or
succeed without finance.
There will be times when you feel like you are at the finish line of this rat race but the path
to the end just keeps stretching further and further from you because this race has no end.
The fight to be at the top is a never ending battle, one filled with failures, courage and
perseverance.
Opulencia brings to you an experience like none other, a peek into what it feels like to be in
this race to find the path to the top of the mountain. Only those equipped with the right
tools of knowledge and wisdom can rise as the conqueror of the market, as the “Bull” of the
market.
Do you think you can find the path to the top in this Opulencia?

“No people exist who’s morality is not daily infringed upon..”
“There is a heroism in crime…Vice and Infamy have their religion…”
“Commit a sin twice and it will not seem a crime..”
The criminal is the creative artist, the detective only the critic. As one shifts their
perspective, even the world in its essence can change; and when the objective of profit
is resolute in the mind, one dismisses morals and ethics without hesitation. Besides,
treasures of Lost Cities are not unearthed by conformists with a forthright view.
Vendetta subsists in pandemonium with scant value for ordinance and protocol.
A virtuous businessman is ethically bound to do the correct and lawful thing, but if
corruption has infested the mind, if the profitable though illegal approach present in this
far from utopic corporate sector, the moral compass can sway, luring one to the criminal
side.
Vendetta is a crime based event where participants may be the criminal, frame the
criminal, cover up tracks or even defend a crime. In an anarchic world, you will never be
certain what you may come up against.
Do you think yourself to be the next Pablo Escobar? Let this event test your criminal
brilliance!

“Hard work is the only idea that never back-fires”
An idea is like a play. It needs a good producer and a good promoter even if it is a
masterpiece. Otherwise the play may never open; or it may be open but, for a lack
of audience close after a week. Similarly, an idea will not move from the fringes to
the mainstream simply because it is good; it requires the execution of a strategic
plan orchestrated for the populace.
More philanthropic companies must try and impress stakeholders by doing more
than just providing a profitable product from the societal perspective.
There are three qualities that every entrepreneur must have to achieve success: a
Monk’s patience, a Warrior’s courage, and a Child’s imagination.
Do you have the ability to ‘Think Different’? Do you dare to defy all norms? Do
you have the zeal to ‘Just Do It’?

● Each team shall comprise of ONE participant.

“All war represents a failure of diplomacy.” – Tony benn

It takes 20 years to build a reputation and one wrong move to ruin it. If you think about
that, you’ll do things differently. The history of PR is a history of a battle for what is reality
and how people will see and understand reality. In a downturn, aggressive PR and
communications strategy is the key.
A true manager will be capable of not just resolving impending conflicts but also put forth a
formal argument if need be. The right kind of communication can not only build a good
brand presence, but also sustain visibility.
An HR manager’s strength lies in his people. Nothing we do is more important than hiring
people. At the end of the day, you bet on people, not strategies.
Diplomacy can and will matter; little is inevitable in International Relations. In fact, it is the
best known quality of an IR manager. In diplomacy there is always a path to find the solution
to a problem.
Words are, of course, the most powerful drug used by mankind. They are your best weapon
as well as your shield. It is upon you, it is your choice and it is all that you have.

So can your words be your defender and your avenger?

Rules and Regulations:
1. Each team shall comprise ONE participant.

2. The participant maybe asked to participate in preliminary rounds prior to his or her

“Money is the mansion that starts falling apart after 10 years , power is the old stone

building that stands for centuries.”

Every government in the world is based on power. Every government describes power through metaphors,
allegory, and exaggeration, from the early Sumerians through modern systems.
In this realm of management the conundrums are infinite and possibilities are endless. It is you who has to
take precise decisions and act in the light of facts. The pain of looking bad is worse than the gain of making
the best move and the only thing more dangerous than moving forward is standing still.”

make a nation a force to reckon with, change the lives of millions.This event aims to put you in such
pressure scenarios in the political world so that they can thrive in it. The test is to become the leader of a
country and prove your acumen.

“Opportunity does not waste time with those who are unprepared”

Sports management is a crucial, but often undervalued element in the success of events,
teams and players across the world. From managing the finances of players and teams
to shaping the sustainability of high-profile tournaments; from marketing a rookie
player to managing his profile when he becomes a superstar; from working tirelessly
behind the scenes to confronting the media in the face of a controversy – the role of a
sports manager is multi-dimensional and never short of challenges. In all of these roles,
energy, motivation, good sportsmanship and teamwork are considered as strong assets.
‘GLADIATOR’ is a man who is trained to fight another man usually until one of them dies.
A Gladiator needs to strategize against his opponent in the same way the sports
manager will have to strategize for his sports personnel and overcome all odds and
benefit from it. Your witty marketing, quick thinking and strategizing will all be put
under the sword in this event. Do you have the grit to come out on top and emerge
victorious?
