Tata Crucible Questions 2011 – Bhubaneshwar Edition

Manas Nayak updates from Bhubaneshwar about the wonderful Tata Crucible Edition held there yesterday.

With a participation of around 70 odd teams, the onstage finals was something everyone were waiting for as the finalists were One Time National Champion,  Four time National Finalists & Last year’s Regional Winners , Expo Biotech, Infosys and Indian Oil.

But after a well fought final Sabyasachi Pani and Santanu Dey won the Bhubaneshwar quiz followed by Rahul Jayanti & AGK Murthy(both teams from Vizag).

Vizag Steel have in the recent past become a Quizzing powerhouse and have openly proclaimed that they have started taking Quizzing very seriously at their workplace by creating a Quiz Club and encouraging employees to take Quizzing up as a new hobby! Kudos to all of you and we wish that you win yet another Crucible title this year!
