Brand Equity Quiz

Went to Brand Equity Quiz Hyderabad round yesterday. The quiz is quite better than previous versions. The theme is refreshing than earlier James Bond, Russian army general themes. Thankfully content is not too wired, especially after hearing questions like this from Lions mouth 'Aamdani atthani, kharcha ____'?

Agro Tech, Broadwise Financial, Convergys(scored 27 out of 30 in prelims), Google,Mindset, and Satyam qualified to finals. Mindset won the quiz with a consistent performance.
