Baahubali in Engineering Question Papers

SS Rajamouli’s Baahubali: The Beginning made its presence felt on the box office this year. But did you ever imagine that the movie Bahubali would make it to an examination question paper? Well, Baahubali: The Beginning was very much part of the civil engineering department examination. The Vellore Institute of technology (VIT) Tamil Nadu made sure to include Baahubali: The Beginning in their civil engineering department examination question paper.
The question paper expected students to come up with an optimum structural stability design to ensure safety of the actors in the climax scene of Baahubali: The Beginning. The weightage of the question was for 20 marks and the reference was made to the climax scene of Baahubali: The Beginning.
The question in the examination paper asked students to provide answer for two references; where the load is acting on the frame so that maximum momentum can be generated and what load acts on the frame, which would make it weak.
The assistant professor of Vellore Institute of Technology said that this is not the first time that the paper had shared something so peculiar. Even in the past some references to the popular culture and trends has been made. It is done to spark an interest in the students with a reference to the popular trend instead of checking their knowledge about bland theoretical knowledge.
Well the year 2015 is all about Baahubali: The Beginning. Hands down Baahubali has won us all over with the larger than life mythological movie. The movie has set a benchmark for not only the South Indian movies but also Bollywood films.
