Tata Crucible 2010 – Hyderabad Edition

Review courtesy- Murali Duggineni

Questions courtesy- Mondodello

Thank you guys for sharing with the Junta!!

The Corporate Edition of the Tata Crucible 2010 teed of from Hyderabad this evening. Nearly 70 teams took part in the prelims. Despite the not-so-encouraging participation on a working day, all the usual suspects in the city were there. The prelims comprised 25 questions (20 dry, 5 visuals). This year, most of the questions in the prelims were classic in nature. While 5 teams made it to the regional finals based on their scores, the sixth team (Microsoft) was picked after a wild card round in which the teams that scored ranked between sixth and eleventh in the prelims were asked 6 questions on the buzzer.

The six teams that made it to the finals are:
· Google
· IBM
· Infosys (Winners- Sridhar Reddy & Surender Reddy)
· Mahindra Satyam
· Microsoft
· Vizag Steel (Santanu and Phani – the reigning champs of the TC Corp Edition)

There were 5 rounds in the finals. Three of these were on buzzer. Google, Infy and Mahindra Satyam had a chance to win the quiz on the last question. However it was the Infosys team, represented by Reddy and Reddy, that emerged the victorious cracking some nice stuff. They could identify the Dare House – the Corp. HQ of Murugappa Group. Another nice connect cracked by Infy was on RBI where visuals of Azim Premji, Kumara Birla, a logo and a pic of someone were shown. While Google(Lateesh and JK) came second, Mahindra Satyam (represented by Nirad and Murali Duggineni) finished third.
