Tata Crucible Corporate Edition 2013 – Jamshedpur – External Track Questions

The Quiz finished on a high, literally with the winning Tata Steel Team actually breaking their table even after Pickbrain’s warnings! Being the last city of the crucible circuit this year, it probably didn’t matter. Tata Steel was closely followed by a married couple from Tata Motors. The guest of honor was Mr. T.V Narendran, the next MD of Tata Steel. A lot of school kids also had their moment of glory as they answered questions “passed” by the corporate participants.
