Close to 225 teams thronged the banquet hall of Vivanta by Taj Surya at Coimbatore for their edition of Tata Crucible. The energy levels of young Indian and their understanding of business was a treat to watch on an otherwise quite Thursday afternoon. After a tight set of 20 questions, the finalists who made it from the prelim were:

  • Kumaraguru Business School: Jagadeesh and VS Dheepan
  • Govt Col of Tech: Ashwin Kumar and Vishnu Prasad
  • PSGCAS: Renga SB and Surya Narayanan
  • CIT: Rahul and Kaushik
  • PSG Col of Tech: Sai Prakash and Goutham Samy
  • ICAI: Ms. Swati and Ms. Sharmila
  • The final was a cliff-hanger in the initial stages with four teams evenly placed at the end of the first couple of ‘overs’. The quality of answers underlined the ever increasing interest and comfort towards business quizzing in this region of India.

    As the quiz progressed the battle opened up with PSGCAS in the lead but closely followed by CIT. Tactics were tested as teams started taking risks. As the excitement mounted, the aspiring chartered accountants from ICAI misfired on a couple of questions and lost out. Team PSGCAS which was now in the lead played sensibly and held off a challenge from the CIT duo to clinch the title.

    The guest of honour Mr. B. C. Kumar – GM Vivanta by Taj Surya, spoke to the teams about the need for ethics and quality in everything one does in order to achieve success.
