My neighbour who has been talking with the organizers, says they refused to give him more details than what you have read so far. He says they are yet to conclude discussions with the state government and sponsorship deals with some excited multinationals but when he pressed them further, using a different set of questions, they hinted that participants must know their blood pressure; know things that can raise the blood pressure; and they must know how to sing.
