[The beginning of Kolkataís IT Forum]
Sidhharth Basu conducting the QUIZ
The Silicon Valley is not the only place thatís humming with activity. The action in the IT world is right here in Kolkata. And as Mr Rajeev Goswami, CEO-CATS, says, "Itís time we recognised this power and create a forum for the IT Industry where all can come together, share ideas, work on challenges and have lots of fun together."
In an amazing battle of wits in the next two hours, Siddhartha Basu and the 8 teams made the audience sit up. Questions like the name of the first cyber cafť in India or visual slides of IT legends or the name of the world champion who lost chess game to Mephisto kept the over enthusiastic audience enthralled. In an absolute mix of audio & visual rounds, the BBC Mastermind man brought out the best in the Quizzers. And if somebody felt that he drove the mouse drivers up the wall, theyíre wrong. The teams surely matched up to the Basuís fire in the finals. Although the ending was quite dramatic with a tie breaker between Usha Martin Telekom and Cognizant Technologies Solutions fighting for the second place. The Calcutta quiz lovers could not have had it better.
