‘This is by far the best final Jaipur has ever had’ observed Pickbrain while one of the finalists said ‘Tata Crucible has changed the way we look at business quizzing in Jaipur’. These reactions summarized the growing popularity for business quizzing in this region.

A very interesting prelim with a few questions based on Rajasthan made the 120 plus teams think hard and they sure enjoyed every bit of it.

The finalists were…

  • MNIT : Rahul Kumbhat & Vineet Rohilla
  • SIMCS : Arvind Kedia & Kamal Kishore Bharghav
  • RA Poddar Inst of Mgmt : Vishu & Dushyant
  • LNMIIT : Dheeraj & Siddhart Mehta
  • RA Poddar Inst of Mgmt : Shakti Singh & Lokesh Yadav
  • Gyan Vihar : Shasank & Nishanth

As the final unfolded RAPIM with Shakti and Lokesh took an early lead while Gyan Vihar, SIMCS and LNMIT also got off the blocks quickly. Just when the battle seemed rather even, Shakti and Lokesh surged ahead with some good hits on the buzzer to get themselves to 30 runs.

The lateral thinking round was certainly demanding but some fantastic thinking by the SIMCS duo got them two super fours and they were on 24, well within striking distance of RAPIM. Gyan Vihar and LNMIIT looked good in bursts but could not find the momentum to keep scoring.

In the final over Shakti and Lokesh played the game with caution and maturity and ensure that a final assault by SIMCS still got them to only 36, two runs short of RAPIM the new Jaipur champs.

A great day for business quizzing at the pink city with not just a large turnout but good quality quizzing as well.
