Quizmaster: Giri ‘Pickbrain’ Balasubramaniam

Tata Crucible

The Tata Crucible Bangalore Edition did not receive the turnout that was expected from the city but nonetheless the audience was treated to some wonderful quizzing.

The prelims question were slightly vague but Giri got a very good set of questions in the finals to compensate a relatively miserable prelim.

With the cutoff being as low as 10, the crowd was undoubtedly miserable at the end of the prelim.

The finals saw last year’s defending champions and runners up on stage with a couple of dark horses but the final six were pretty much on expected lines.

Last year’s champions (Centre for Management Studies) were pretty badly rolled over by the other teams. They also became Laughing Stocks when they switched places in the middle of the quiz (vastu lore), which only made conditions more miserable for the team.

The quiz was consistently led by St Joseph’s College of Commerce closely followed by Sri Bhagwan Mahaveer Jain College (Commerce) but it was the last question that decided the winner.

Christ College, SBMJC and SJCC battled it till the very end but it was the calm and composed St joseph’s College of Commerce that took home he bounty after a very consistent show.


About the new system of quizzing, the 20:20 format is pretty interesting but extremely short (It hardly took an hour to complete the final)

It was undoubtedly a fun concept and absolute entertainment..

The final position:

  1. St Joseph’s College of Commerce
  2. Sri Bhagawan Mahaveer Jain College (Commerce)
  3. XIME, Bangalore

That’s all from me,

Till next time
