Tata Crucible 2009 Kolkata Questions

Review and Questions thanks to Debasish Mukherjee (mjunction-the Tata Track winners)


On a wet & windy Saturday afternoon all roads led to the GD Birla Sabhaghar to witness the 6th edition of the TATA crucible quiz. Hundreds of quizzing aficionados landed up at the venue to witness a nerve wrecking evening of quizzing

As usual we started off with a 25 question prelim after which 6 teams were selected to appear in the internal track of quiz. The teams that qualified for the internal track were TCS 1,Virgin mobile, TCS 2 ,TCS 3(represented by 4 time national champion Sabyasachi Chandra & 2 time National winner Biswabijoy Sen), mjunction services limited & TCS 4.After a stiff competition mjunction represented by Debasish Mukherjee & Subasis Dey emerged the winners defending their title in the process. TCS 1 represented by Sudip Kalyan Dey & Abhishek Das were the runners up.

In the external track that followed the teams which qualified for the finals were CTS, Telegraph, Vizag Steel, R.B.I ,Standard Chartered Bank & Electro zavod. In a low scoring final the teams were all bunched together before the last round where Vizag Steel represented by Rahul Jayanti & AGK Murthy surged forward with 2 breathtaking answers. Vizag Steel have now won this quiz 5 times in a row. Truly an outstanding achievement. Telegraph represented by Rishin & Devdan Mitra had to remain content with second spot for the second year in a row.
