Think Quest Finale

Riyaz Iqbal and Vimina B T of Cummins India won the ThinkQuest Corporate Quiz while the first runner up spot too was claimed by a Cummins India team comprising Vageesh K V and Ramprakash.

The two teams were tied for the first position but Iqbal and Vimina proved superior in the tie-breaker round. The team of Vinayak Kulkarni and Arpita Mirani of Mahindra Satyam came third.
The winners took home goodies including iPads, hi-tech bicycles, vacation entitlements in Goa and other assortments.

Organised jointly by Life Republic, an integrated township project launched by Kolte Patil Developers and The Times of India, the event evoked a rapturous response from Pune's corporate professionals. As many as 2,000 teams participated in the event through the initial rounds and six of them qualified for the grand finale which had actor Mandira Bedi as the quiz master.

The pre-final round, which comprised a written section, a rapid fire round and a surprise question, had 24 teams out of which the final six were chosen.

Mandira Bedi shot questions at the finalists that tested their general knowledge, their awareness about the city (Pune) they live in and their analytical thinking. They were faced with bouncers such as "What was Pune city originally known as?" or "Who was the founder of Eastman Kodak?" "Which drink was initially known as 'Brad's drink?"

The six finalists were also rewarded for their specific superiority as the Mahindra Satyam team of Kulkarni and Mirani were chosen for the 'Creative thinking award,' Cummins team of Vageesh and Ramprakash claimed 'Regional thinking award,' Abhisek Mishra and Avinash CV of Tech Mahindra got the honour for 'Lateral thinking award," and Amdocs team of Arjun V and Sai Pavan got the award for 'Logical thinking' with the winning team of iqbal and Vimina closing with the 'Sharp thinking award.'

The audience too was enthusiastic about the event as they cheered their teams and answered the questions themselves with great prowess and accuracy. Their enthusiasm was ably rewarded by the hosts who offered tickets to the IPL match between Pune and Kolkata scheduled for Saturday.

Vijay Sane, project director of Life Republic, said he was overwhelmed by the response and said the organisers would be keen on making it a platform for interaction between the thinking communities of Pune.
