Thanks to all organizers who worked hard day and night and made it possible.A name of competition was to be suggested so editorial boards of English and Urdu were assigned the task Urdu Editorial Board suggested ” Adabi Dangal ” and english editorial board suggested ” literary Olympiad” Although Adabi dangal was more interesting and innovative kind of name but was rejected due to non sophistication and funniness. 😛
