About 142 teams from 65 colleges across the city put up an amazing battle of wit and intellect at the

Hyderabad regional round of the 9th edition of the Tata Crucible Campus Quiz 2013, an all-India inter-collegiate business quiz, held here on Sunday. 

K. Naresh kumar and S.M Muneer Ali, final year students of M.B.A in Finance and Marketing at the Anwar -Ul-Uloom College of  Business Management emerged winners of the quiz. Hailing from a rural background, both have struggled to pursue their education dreams. They have been working to win the finals for four years.

Giving them a tough competition on the other hand were Sriraj R and Mohan Choudhary, first year  B.Com students from Bhavan’s Degree College. Glad to have won the second prize, team member Mohan said, “It all began with my interest in business which led to making my first move towards quizzing three months ago. Here I am now at my first fete in quizzing and a big one ofcourse. Although Sriraj and I were runners up we will surely win it the next time.”

The Quiz Master Giri Balasubramaniam, popularly known as Pickbrain pointed out that this year there have been a lot of entries from smaller towns and also increased participation from non-management students in such quizzes.

The winners were rewarded a cash prize of Rs 75,000 by V.Rajanna, vice president and global head - Telecom Technology Business Unit, Tata Consultancy Services, Hyderabad.
