Students Can Qualify in High-Profile Quiz Contest

“Which government institution was chosen by the Indian Railways to sell its tickets, following the success of its online portal?” quizmaster Giri Balasubramanium tossed up this question.

Recollecting that the post office was now also selling flight tickets, Amrita students Vishal R. and S. Bharqdwaaj Rajan took a chance. Tentatively they answered, “India Post.”

They were right! The correct answer enabled the team to become the first to qualify for the ninth edition of the Tata Crucible Campus Quiz Competition 2013 from Coimbatore.
