Winners Defence Accounts Dept Shibin Azad and Deepak Alakkaparambil
Runners The Federal Bank Amrut Itty Abraham and Midhun V. Zachariah
The green campus of TCS at Kochi played a perfect host to another edition of the quiz. Pickbrain set the ball rolling with some interesting questions in the prelims. It led to the following six teams as finalists.
Bharat Petroleum: Vedhi V and Joseph A
The Federal Bank: Amrut Itty Abraham and Midhun V. Zachariah
Defence Accounts Dept: Shibin Azad and Deepak Alakkaparambil
Q Collective Knowledge Solutions: Bichu Abraham and Aravind Anil
Malayala Manorama: Arun Thomas and Nitin Suresh
TCS: Nikhil C and Karthikeyan
The final was brisk with Federal Bank, Defense Accounts and BPCL scoring early. The seasoned duo from Malayala Manorama did not find their customary touch despite their many attempts.
The other teams did crack good questions but we're unable to match the pace of the bankers and the defence duo who moved ahead of the rest. In the final moments, Federal Bank missed out on the buzzer. Defence Accounts which had held on to its lead consistently won their maiden title.
The guest of honour Mr. Dinesh Thampi, Vice President and Head TCS Kerala spoke of how the state has been able to build a fantastic ecosystem for start-ups to harness the immense talent the state has. He also spoke of how large corporations were also providing huge opportunities.
