Navi Mumbai is a fairly recent addition to the list of cities that a Tata Crucible visits and it was evident from the fact that quizmaster Pickbrain had pegged the prelim at a fairly easy level compared to a lot of other cities. After a prelim of 20 questions, the finalists who qualified were:
RAIT Nerul: Devendra K and Anit Basu
MGM Navi Mumbai: Chandan Singh and Ranjit Kumar
NISM: Ganesh Kumar and Vishwanth Rana
ITM Business School: Arshad and Sangeet Jain
NISM: Akshay and Sameer Sood
SPB College Surat: Ms. Vishaka and Ms.Twinkle
Champions, RAIT Nerul - Devendra K and Anit Basu
The final started with the girls from Surat making a quick start. As the quiz moved on they were a little too slow on the buzzer to make progress. The team from RAIT were consistent across the quiz to keep scoring frequently and stayed in the lead.
The duo from NISM kept scoring frequently to stay in the hunt, a few misses on the buzzer knocked them back but they again managed to get back. In the final overs, they did try valiantly to catch up with RAIT but had to settle for the runner up title.
The guest of honour Dr. (Ms) Maureen Lobo, Dean Academics, ITM IHM appreciated the initiative and encouraged the teams to be part of such events as part of a learning curve.
Runner Up, NISM - Ganesh Kumar and Vishwanth Rana
