Chief guest for the evening, Mr Vikram Nair, Member of Parliament, Singapore
presented the prizes to the winning teams. Delighted to be at the event, he said, “Tata Crucible Campus Quiz encourages to learn more and more. Don’t be afraid of making mistakes. If we don’t do mistakes, then (we) never learn. Learn from mistakes and keep continuously learning and try to do new things. Do something different and give back to community.”
Winner Rutwik Vishwamitre from National University of Singapore expressed his joy and said, “The Tata Crucible Campus quiz Singapore edition is a highly prestigious annual event of competitive quizzing that is enthusiastically contested by hundreds of university students in the country. One of the highlights of this contest was that the quizmaster, Giri Balasubramaniam, affectionately known as ‘Pickbrain’ conducted the quiz in his trademark interactive and suspense style. The level of questions was excellent, and the lateral thinking involved in certain questions was well set up.”
The winners and runners-up will be invited to the international finale of the quiz slated to be held in India in 2020.
