South Asian students wanted

South Asian students are being asked to compete to be in an online soap opera starting this summer.

Chaitime.com, a South Asian website, will visit the University Community Centre atrium today at 5 p.m. to interview students for the Summer of Chai internship competition, said Bunal Konwak, Chaitime.com's public relations officer.

Six students will be chosen to move and live in the Chaitime House, located in Philadelphia. A webcam will broadcast the students' lives every day, all day, for the summer in a soap opera entitled 'The Young and the Desi', he said.

"It's really competitive," Konwak said, adding candidates will be judged on their personality, skills, experience and a videotaped application. "At each school, a few candidates will be admitted to the second round," he explained.
