As with past years, the ninth edition of Mind aMaze held on November 9 at Capital Tower did not disappoint, with celebrity quizzer Joy Battacharjya returning for the fourth time as quiz master.
Experienced team Ageing Bulls bagged the trophy after several rounds of intense and close competition, with the award presented to them by the event's Special Guest Rohit Brijnath, Straits Times assistant sports editor.
Started in 2011, Mind aMaze is an initiative conceived by the friends and family of passionate quizzer Mayukh Mitter, a Managing Director with GIC, who passed away suddenly on August 15, 2011.
Quizzing was a passion for Mitter, and a competition like Mind Amaze was something he had dreamt of organising when he was still around. After his passing in 2011, his wife Swapna Mitter together with some family members and friends, came together to put together the event as a way to honour him and keep his legacy alive.
"It's always fun, and the atmosphere is amazing because lots of families are here as well. Joy is a great quizmaster, and it's an exciting affair affair," said Aadisht Khanna, from the Ageing Bulls team.
"Besides that, memories of Mayukh also make this special because it's a great way to remember somebody," added Pradeep Ramarathnam.
On this year's Mind Amaze, Battacharjya said, "The quality of Mind Amaze is getting better every year. The good teams from previous years return, and at the same time new teams emerge, which is always exciting to see. I love seeing the kids come out here as well, they look like they had fun, and also gave some great answers."
