TAPMI to host 'Quiz on beach' today

T A Pai Management Institute (TAPMI) Manipal will hold its flagship event, the 15th edition of 'Quiz on the Beach's finale, on January 7 at Malpe's beautiful seashore.

Initiated in 2003, the unique concept of quizzing on the beach has grown exponentially over the years. The city qualifiers this year saw an addition of two more Indian cities, Pune and Lucknow, making it 10 Indian cities and two international cities of Dubai and Singapore. Students from more than 500 institutes, including premier institutes such as IIMs, IITs, NITs, SPJAIN, IIFT, BITS Pilani, NUS and others were part of the quiz extravaganza. The top 26 teams from across the world battle it out to win the coveted TAPMI QoTB Champions title.

The grand finale will take place on Sunday and will be conducted by quizmaster Giri Balasubramaniam of the TATA Crucible fame. Pickbrain, as he is fondly called, is a prolific quizmaster and has anchored over 2,000 shows across several countries like India, USA, Sri Lanka, Singapore, UAE, Oman and UK.

The eight teams from the semi-final will battle for the prize money of Rs 6 lakh, Rs 3 lakh and Rs 1 lakh for the first, second and third place respectively. The purpose of QoTB is to bring the sharpest minds to Manipal and for the students to look beyond intellectual knowledge. "Although we create a competitive environment, our aim is to create immense networking opportunities for participants," stated a press release.
