As the shooting Date draws closer..all the contestants are taken to filmistan studios for the entire day..the film Studio is an overwhelmingly proactive and inspiring arena..with highly admirable work ethics followed by every person..right from the spotboy to the creative director to the celebrity coaches..each of the 150 persons is dedicated, focussed and striving to put in his 100%...playing the role given to him passionately..so that no time is wasted.

The contestants are divided into batches..while 1 batch is doing the sound n choreography(if required ) rehearsals on the actual set.., the 2nd batch goes out with the designer for dress & hair trials..meanwhile the 3rd set of kids are getting make-up done(yes,! even make up n hairstyle are included in technical rehearsals ).
these batches undergo all the rehearsals until the director is satisfied.

A nice observation..:
there is 1 lunch break for everyone...and each of the crew members...peons..spotboys..light & tech. persons..contestants..director..coaches..NO MATTER who the personality is...all have the very same food together..and start the next session with renewed energy..!

TCS IT QUIZ



Navrachana Sama, Vadodara top Gujarat in TCS IT WIZ

WINNER : Navrachana School Sama Vadodara - Sujay Nigam and Sachin Agarwal(Class X)

Close to 500 teams and the auditorium was buzzing with activity and excitement as quizmaster Pickbrain walked in to a thunderous applause from the students. After briefing them on the rules and the long list of prizes, he got down to business with his set of questions for the prelim. They were certainly benchmarked to other top cities and the students seemed to like that. The six schools that made it to the final were:

Navrachana School Sama Vadodara - Sujay Nigam and Sachin Agarwal
Anand Vidya Vihar Vadodara - Ms. Tanvi Aiyer and Ms. Vidhi Shah
Udgam School Taltej - Jaidev Shah and Arnav Buch
DPS Gandhinagar - Aniruddha Mysore and Shitanshu Banerjee
St. Kabir Ahmedabad - Tejas Bagrecha and Shulin Saraswat
DPS Bopal - Smeet Madlani and Aditya R

The final was riveting from the very first question as teams that made it to the final were well prepared and knew what to expect. They all clearly understood and anticipated what was coming up on the software, as they had mapped the quiz from the previous cities.

The scores after the first half of the quiz gave nothing away as teams looked even. The seasoned quizmaster promptly quipped, 'this quiz will be won or lost on the buzzer'. True to his words the buzzer did create a flutter and soon enough the youngest team on stage (Sujay Nigam and Sachin Agarwal), from Navrachana Vadodara (both finalists were from class 10), ran up a good lead. Only the duo from DPS Bopal came close to challenging them but that too was short-lived as the Navrachana boys just went from strength to strength and made it to the national final.

The city clocked closed to 6000 tweets from the auditorium as the quiz progressed.

The guest of honour Prof.Parimal Vyas, the Acting Vice-Chancellor and Pro Vice-Chancellor, MSU Baroda aptly explained that in the modern world,many have capabilities that are similar, but what makes a winner is the 'Energy and Enthusiasm' one brings to the table. Mr.Hasit Kaji, the Head of TCS Gujarat,appreciated the growth of the quiz beyond the city to all major locations of the state and envisioned the quiz to soon be a state wide phenomenon.
