Very neat work and well segmented. I am sure this will come handy for all those who do not have a copy of the Crucible books. Truly appreciate your passion for quizzing and Crucible in particular.

Giri (Pick Brain) QM – Tata Crucible


I managed to land up in the Mumbai regional  finals  of  the  Tata  Crucible  (’10)   and I have your brilliant compilation to thank for. For a noob like me, your e-book was a godsend as a one-stop shop for crucible material. In fact, your book's popularity is quite wide spread because one enterprising candidate had taken its printout and brought it along in hope of cracking the prelims! Thanks again, and may the force be with you!

Niraj Agarwal

I am truly amazed by what you have done for the quizzing fraternity. A BIG Thank You !

Awesome content!

Ankur Jindal

Commendable effort buddy. I am sure it must have taken an awful lot of time to compile them and publish. I can understand the labor gone into it as I am a TC finalist at Hyderabad this year and spend some time trawling the net for fundaes!

Tata Crucible does not need any introduction to the quizzing community in India. As far as the quality
of the quiz and the hoopla surrounding the event is concerned, people have different opinions. As a matter of fact even both of us have contrasting views regarding Tata Crucible, its content and various issues. However, the one fact that both of us do agree upon is, that it is a quiz followed closely by many quizzers. We went around looking for a set of questions which have been asked in Crucible but the best we could find was on Nair’s  site. Although the collection is quite comprehensive, a large number of questions are now outdated. Giri has the tendency to ask quite a few questions on current affairs, which we appreciate, but current affairs of 2007 are not relevant in 2010 or 2020. Also, some quiz bloggers had posted questions of their cities from memory hence some were without answers, erroneous or ill framed. So, we decided to take care of these problems and set out with a task to make a database of questions from Tata Crucible which are relevant today and will be relevant even in 2020, if Tata Crucible lasts that long. We sure hope it does.  In this document you would find a set of 421 questions** which have been asked in Tata Crucible Corporate Editions over the years 2006 to 2009. For the list of cities covered have a look at the table given below: City\Years 2009 2008 2007 2006 Ahemdabad     Bangalore     Bhubneshwar     Chandigarh     Chennai     Cochin     Coimbatore     Delhi     Goa     Hyderabad     Indore     Jaipur     Jamshedpur     Kochi     Kolkata     Lucknow   Mumbai       Pune     Ranchi     FINALS     We hope that you find this compilation helpful. Also, feel free to contact us for – whatever you think you should contact us for. Our contact details are given at the end of the ebook.
