As per Viraj “I am a final year student of Bachelor of Management studies (BMS) at S.M.Shetty College (Powai). Business Quizzing is a passion to me and winning Tata Crucible National / International is a dream. I started quizzing 2 years back and have won over 50 Quizzes in Mumbai and Pune. I started quizzing when no one from my ex-college was ready to be my partner and since then took up the challenge and went on to be one of the best business quizzers in my city”.
