ever Corporate Quiz conducted by myself within the WIPRO Campus, albiet
there weren't much worthy competition to note across, the audience
participation were sometimes quite endagering the Questions, and had a
tough time keeping the enthusiasm of these guys at a pretty lower
Level.. But neverthless, shall remember this Quiz primarily as it was
done for a pre-cursor to TATA crucibles being held at Chennai the same
time... and found an amazing group of Quizzers within Chennai ...
This is most probably not very much original Stuff, cause we just had 2
days and I didn't have any time to scan around my own data-base, so
went across to switch loads of them from Quiznet,etc... but the outcome
was nonetheless Amazing... Check them out, and who knows if you could
also use them for any Corporate Quiz.
