Based on selected Vachanamruts, Swamini Vatu and the Shikshapatri a 20-minute written paper of 90 objective questions was taken by all.

2. Prasang Varnan
From a defined list of 10 stories, each person had to prepare any 3. From these 3, the judges selected any 1 for the participant to present in 5 minutes.
