Back on ground after a 2-year hiatus, the Grand Finale of the Tata Crucible Corporate Quiz 2022 brought together the nation’s best quizzers and quiz lovers from across the nation to celebrate knowledge and curiosity. In this pan-India quizzing competition, which received over 10,000 registrations, the winners from across 12 cluster finals competed in 2 Semi-finals, and top three from each Semi-Final competed at the national final event.

The chief guest for the event was Mr. Sidharth Sharma, General Counsel, Tata Sons. He said; “After witnessing today’s finals, what I can say Tata Crucible represents are the three elements for any journey towards excellence. First is curiosity to know more and the desire to gain knowledge, second is creativity as you must have the ability to apply knowledge creatively, as not all answers are always straight-forward and third is humility as one should always be a knowledge seeker and aware that there is so much more we are yet to know. I would like to congratulate the national champion and all the participants and my compliments to Quizmaster Giri for hosting the quiz so well. Over 10,000 individuals registered for the quiz, which is quite a remarkable number. My compliments to the entire organising team for bringing together this great knowledge initiative.”
The finale also witnessed a round hosted by Mr. Harish Bhat, Brand Custodian, Tata Sons. Donning the Quizmaster’s hat, Mr. Bhat posed some interesting questions to the participants, adding to the excitement of the grand finale.
Rajarshi Chanda was declared the winner in a fiercely contested competition. Rajarshi said; “Winning the coveted title of ‘National Champion’ at the Tata Crucible Corporate Quiz is a dream come true for me. Tata Crucible is India’s biggest and most prestigious quiz and every quizzer worth their salt wants to ascend this pinnacle of quizzing once in their lifetime. This is an absolutely exhilarating feeling and I am overjoyed that my patience and persistence have enabled me to realize this long-awaited dream today. This is an experience that I will cherish for a lifetime!”
