Tata Crucible Questions 2011 – Hyderabad Edition
A very dear friend and well wisher- Raja Reddy updates about the Tata Crucible Edition held at Hyderabad.
With a participation of around 100 odd teams, the onstage finals was something everyone were waiting for as the regular finalists like Google and Microsoft just missed out this year!
Onstage in this year’s Hyderabad edition were 2 teams from Infosys and one each from Cognizant, Satyam, IBM and Deloitte
Although a thick battle in the beginning, the duo from Infy (Sridhar & Surendra Reddy) started racing ahead after the buzzers and played extremely well towards the end to be crowned champions at Hyderabad!
But what stood out in the felicitation was the statement by the runners-up from IBM (Raghuram K & S) that they would contribute a fair share of their winnings to the Tata Medical Center.
In times where we have always believed that the cash prizes at Quizzes has lured teams into negative tactics, this gesture really stands tall!
Wish you the very best for the finals Infy and wish you the best for all your endeavors IBM!!
