Review by Souvik
Went to see the Mumbai campus round at Taj President. Am glad that I did, for it was a nice quiz. Much better than last year with a number of good teams on stage.
The prelims had 20 questions which were mostly guessable. 2 questions, particularly on Ray Kroc and 7-Eleven were nicely framed. One new thing for me was two questions on Tatas in the prelims. Also, thankfully there were no questions where you had to identify the production houses of Bollywood films. Hopefully that trend will stop from now on.
After the prelims, 6 teams that made it on stage were:
Sardar Patel College of Engineering
HR College of Commerce
Sadly no team from my alma mater NMIMS made it to stage. I was also surpised to see a team from NITIE and KJ Somaiya to miss out though they did make it to the wildcards.
The finals were better than last year. Some nice questions and some cracking answers made it a great final. The undergrad teams from SPCE & HR College gave some stunning answers. However, the ITM duo looked solid on fundas and well-prepared and it was what set them apart. They did give the audience some entertaining moments when they rapped on & on in 2-3 answers. To me, they were the deserving winners. All the best for the National Finals, guys!
One heartening thing was to see several people from SPCE & HR College turn up to cheer their teams. Their answers were loudly applauded by their mates and they did deserve every bit of it. Well done guys!
DRIEMS won the Bhubaneshwar Edition of Tata Crucible.
Asansol Engineering College won the first campus edition of the Ranchi Tata Crucible followed by XLRI, Jamshedpur.
