The Quizzing was a regular affair here at jsr with as many as 80 teams turning up being a Saturday.The questions were workable and easy compared to the other towns hosting it uptill now.The cutoff was somewhere around 12-13 in prelims of 20 questions.
The stage had 3 teams from TATA Motors( first time motors outnumbering TATA STEEL on stage)and 2 teams from TATA STEEL and 1 from TELCON.
After a rivetting and roller coster show the untenable winners of the jsr tata track were Shankha Mishra and E.G Khan from TATA STEEL.
The runners-up were the very Mr.Mohit and Mr.Nirmal also from TATA STEEL
The audience (that included me ) turn out was ardent and there were practically no questions unanswered by the house.A special mention to the Loyola School Kids who were an outstanding audience and gave Pickbrain some food for thought to start with a Crucible school round.
