An air of anticipation and excitement gripped the scene, as teams came out in large numbers on a Sunday morning for the final city of edition of the 15th season of TCS IT Wiz, the Nation’s biggest IT Quiz for schools. Pickbrain in customary style dished out the best possible prelim to live up to the expectations of well prepared Mumbai schools that led to the final six on stage.

The final was an absolutely riveting battle with all teams taking collective scores across the early rounds and playing with great confidence and caution. The duo from RN Podar did not get their grip on the quiz early on, but as the buzzers came into play they started progressing well to finish on top of the ‘podium’.

It was however not an easy win as teams from St.Rocks, New Horizon (the eventual runner up) and others kept at it and with one final round to go the quizmaster observed “Any of the six teams can still win this quiz.”

The attraction of the day was also beyond the wit of the seasoned quizmaster and the amazingly informed teams to the ‘fastest Indian on wheels’, Narain Karthikeyan, the guest of honour.

Students, parents and young TCSers all thronged the stage for selfies and autographs after the event from the ace racer and prolific quizmaster. A fantastic day for quizzing at a superbly organised event was the feeling we had as we walked our way out, clicking a selfie!
