“I so far only experienced quiz competition in television. It was a feeling which couldn’t be expressed in words when I entered IIM Ahmedabad. It was so mesmerizing seeing a live quiz competition at a professional level. It was my dream to study at IIM which I couldn’t fulfill but at least got a chance to see a quiz there. It was a diversified crowd as students from various colleges participated that evening. The participants were the employees from big giant companies where I wish to work someday and hopefully get a chance to be the other side of the coin like the participants. Derek O’Brien , the famous quiz master who throws a vibe and creates such an expression which is hard to forget. I was lucky enough to see him anchoring live. I also got the opportunity to talk to him for a moment.
The quiz started with Derek introducing every team and applauding them for their presence though their hard work. Quiz was of six rounds eliminating teams at every round. The intensity of room was very high throughout the quiz. It was a wonderful experience and I would like to thank my college to give me the opportunity to be a part of that quiz.”
“Not every dream comes true, but some definitely do come true. The journey of forty five minutes evoked countless emotions in my mind and heart. It was incomparable feeling of being the one to touch the soul of the Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad. Brand Equity Quiz’12 was just a medium what mattered was the outcome – to step inside the best b-institute in India. It was the feeling of contentment along with anxiety which had taken control over me during my stay in the premises. Though the duration of stay was not long but it was long enough to leave an everlasting impression on my mind and soul”.
