The new Vivanta by Taj in the rapidly changing city skylines of Guwahati played a perfect host to the city edition of Tata Crucible. With over a 100 enthusiastic and passionate quizzers being part of the event, the tensions were visible. Pickbrain took them through a 20 question prelim that led to the following finalists.
Umananda Dairy : Arun and Niraj
Neigrihms (Shillong) : Kaushik and Vinay
Guwahati High Court : Syed B. Rahman and Abdul Aman
ASEB : Arnav and Bhaskar
RBI : Ashirbad and Saurav
Tata Steel : Abhinav and Brahma
The final witnessed the lawyers from the Guwahati High Court get off to a quick start. Soon enough RBI were scoring too as both these teams got ahead of the others. The other teams scored and lost on the buzzer so no one effectively moved forward.
The lawyers and RBI kept scoring and it was at this stage that ASEB who were in the negatives started scoring at a rapid pace and kept coming back. The Guwahati High Court team got the basics right and played the game well to ensure a victory for themselves.
The young RBI team made just a couple of mistakes and ASEB capitalised on that and inched closer. On the final question, they took the plunge and got ahead of the bankers bank to clinch the runner up title.
The guest of honour Mr. Ashutosh Agnihotri (IAS), Vice Chairman & CEO, GMDA appreciated the teams and gave away the prizes. Mr. Krishna Kant, GM, Vivanta by Taj Guwahati was also present.
