Sanjay Krishna and Rajendra Dangwal of NLU Institute Udaipur won the regional round of Tata Crucible Quiz Contest. IIM Udaipur’s Sanish Samuel and Anand Desai got runner up position.
The winners are qualified for the next Zone 3 Final Round where competitors from 8 cities will face each other. Professor Farida Shah, Dean presented Rs.75000 to the winners and Rs.35000 prize to the runner up.
The quiz was hosted by ace quizmaster Giri Balasubramaniam, better known as ‘Pickbrain’ who through his questions kept the contestants and the audience constantly engaged.
The students of IIM Udaipur facilitated the quiz in the city. Four teams from the institute secured a place in the second round of the tournament. The runners up, Sanish Samuel and Anand Desai were also from the institute but, unfortunately, the top prize eluded the institute in this edition.
The city showed a bumper turnout of about 180 teams – one of the highest number in the country where the event is being held for the first time. The Tata crucible organizers have vouched to make this city a part of their itinerary in the subsequent edition as well.
