Srijan 2010 Biz & Cyber quizzes

The quizzes for Srijan 2010 the Tech Fest of Jadavpur University were conducted by our very own Titash on the 20th & 21st of March this year.

The Biz quiz on the 20th, saw around 20 teams taking part with some pretty decent teams turning up.
C. Ramshankar from IIMC, sitting alone, topped the prelims ! Teams from JU, IIFT, Xaviers & a couple of other mixed teams made up the rest of the qualifiers.

CRam raced off to a healthy lead in the early parts of the quiz but towards the end, myself & Boss managed to catch up with him. However CRam managed to win on the last question. IIFT finished 3rd.

The quiz had awesome questions & some very interesting, innovative rounds.

It was time for the Cyber quiz on the 21st. Sadly just 10 teams turned up with just 2 and a half teams from Enquiry ( Shabbir was sitting with a Srijan volunteer ). The rest of the teams were literally begged to participate. As expected the quiz was a 2 horse battle at the start between the 2 full Enquiry teams, Panda & Sid vs Boss & me. After going neck & neck in the early stages, Sid & Panda pulled away in the middle stages and won comfortably. Again the quiz was conducted superbly with great questions. The quizmaster Titash, did his job splendidly but unfortunately the organisation, sans the CEO Kunalda, left a lot to be desired.
