TCS IT quiz kicks off in Bangalore

Our Bureau

CONNECT Sachin Tendulkar to a group of friends and some black berries to arrive at the name of a company... "

Even before the audience blinked, pat came the answer, `Airtel'. And how did the 11th standard would-be techie arrive at the name? "Sachin is the brand ambassador for Airtel, the company which has just introduced a Blackberry wireless solution in India, and `friends' is the company's promotion theme." To say that Genext in Bangalore is well-connected to the IT world would be an understatement of its tech awareness.

At the TCS IT Wiz in Bangalore, toughies such as these were cracked without a blink: Who are carders (credit card hackers), who is the Enchantress of Numbers (Ada Lovelace, the founder of scientific computing), Panda is an anti-virus software, and Digicel is one of the sponsors of the current triseries in Sri Lanka.

When asked to connect Akebono (a sumo wrestler) to the theme song from `Kaal' in just five seconds, the audience was sure that this would put the young systems down.

"Malaika Arora is the brand ambassador for Yahoo in India and Yahoo founder Jerry Yang's first workstation was named after this sumo wrestler," was the confident answer and it was the right one too. Such fast thinking prompted Mr N.G. Subramaniam, Vice-President and Head, TCS, Bangalore to comment: "The knowledge of these students will make us go back humbled."

After five rounds of answering such high-tech questions, National Public School, Indiranagar walked away with the first prize, followed by MES Kishore Kendra and Jain College.

The seventh edition of the TCS IT Wiz kicked off in Bangalore to a packed hall today and will soon be taken to Chennai, Hyderabad, Thiruvananthapuram, Hyderabad, Pune, and Kolkata.
