All quizzing needs is an open mind: Joy Bhattacharjya

It is a Saturday evening. Not a day one would expect to see too many working professionals in Singapore's CBD. But this was a special day, the eight edition of Mind aMaze and the return of the gifted quiz master Joy Bhattacharjya to Singapore for the third time as its quizmaster.  

Highly enthusiastic group of ultra bright minds from different backgrounds congregated at Capital Tower on Robinson Road with the love of quizzing in mind. 

Connected to India caught up with Joy on the sidelines of the quiz, who emphasised, "All quizzing needs is an open and curious mind." Here is what he had to say about Mind aMaze, quizzing in Singapore, his association with sports as well as his latest venture – the professional volleyball league.
