Gujarat's impressive show


Navrachana Vadodara - Abhinav Goyal & Anshul Shah


St.Kabir Ahmedabad - Hraday and Kushal Shah

The Gujarat edition of the quiz witnessed a marked improvement in the standards of the quiz with teams putting up a formidable display against a set of tough posers.

Over 500 teams thronged the Tagore Hall and battled through 20 preliminary questions that seemed a shade tougher than the other cities where the quiz has been held so far.

The finalists were

AG Higher Secondary School - Chinmay Garg & Jay Parekh
Zydus School of Excellence - Dhruv & Aditya
DPS, Bopal - Anuj B & Sanket Nainani
Navrachana Vadodara - Abhinav Goyal & Anshul Shah
St.Kabir Ahmedabad - Hraday & Kushal Shah
Prakash Higher Secondary School - Shreyas Nahata & Harsh Kothari

The final witnessed all teams making impressive starts but as the quiz progressed it was DPS - Bopal and St.Kabir that moved ahead of the rest. In the buzzer rounds other teams made attempts to regain ground but not with much success. The only team that moved a little ahead was Navrachana from Vadodara.

As the final rounds unfolded Navrachana took a few risks that paid off and they were back in toe with DPS and St,Kabir. The quiz was tense as it went down to the final question with St.Kabir on 40, DPS on 35 and Navrachana on 30. The duo from Navrachana again took the initiative and cracked a tough question on Steve Jobs to draw level with St.Kabir.

In the tie breaker that followed fortune stood by the brave and Navrachana clinched the national final berth inching past a very solid St.Kabir and an enterprising DPS.

The Honorable speaker of the Gujarat Assembly Shri Ashok Bhatt and the Head of TCS Ahmedabad gave away the prizes and observed that the future of the nation is safe with such wonderful talent.
