The Great Robbery at Amity School of Business

There are quizzes and there are Pornob quizzes.

And when one goes for the latter, one knows that one is playing Russian roulette.

Hence, imagine a quiz where the quiz conducted by Pornob seems like a high point of the day.

Yes, it is true. Today, on show, was the most unprofessionally organised quiz in recent history.

Why does this quiz stir up such a passionate diatribe from a generally mild-mannered person? Because I have reason to be extremely aggrieved. Here's why:

1) The quiz was scheduled for 9:30, an extremely impossible time considering the location of Amity(Noida) and the given weather conditions. However, when we reach the college, we are informed that the quiz has been delayed to 11:00 am, since the quizmaster's flight has been delayed.

2) There are 2 sets of prelims, one by students of the college and one by Pornob. The cumulative score was taken in which "Scores of first prelim are halved and Scores of the second prelim are doubled."

3) Only one team per college allowed. IMT Ghaziabad had 3 teams, and when they were told this shocking rule,that too after the prelims were over, they created a ruckus. Pornob favored the IMT guys and instead of 6, 7 teams were selected into the finals.

4) Collecting 500 rupees from each team as participation fee and then keeping only a single prize of Rs.2000. This is thievery at its worst, something that makes this quiz a worse experience than MLNC.(read the post on MLNC Quiz in the Quiz Review archives.)

5) Lack of communication which ensured that we kept sitting till the prize distribution and only then realised that there was no second prize.[We had come second.]

The target man this time is the liberated soul, who smelt like teen spirit. When we told him of our grievances, he first declared wrongly that we were tied for 2nd place and do not deserve a prize. When he found that wasnt all too right, he behaved high and mighty and declared that he was a BT Acumen finalist and that we shouldnt tell him what to do. Finally, he mumbled a flimsy apology.

I didnt see this guy's photo on the BT Acumen site, but even if we take his word for it, it only makes it even more shameful that a good quizzer should behave so.


About the Quiz: The quiz was a very "you-know-it-or-you-dont" quiz. However, some of the questions were genuinely good. Questions shall be posted in the next post.

Any positives? Pornob's lament about the lack of socially responsible quizzers was to some extent, correct. And then, there was food- bland and cold, though.

Moral of the Story: NEVER go to Amity School of Business for any quiz. It is too far and the buses are too crowded. If you reach there, you are likely to suffer the way we have suffered.

If you are an Amity Business School student and feel offended, please take efforts to prove that you are not an idiot dressed in smart pants and suits, (as was seen in the "Best Manager" contest after the quiz.)

That's it? Come on guys, things suck much more than that! My roommate demands that you know that the Amity School of Business is different from the Amity International Business School (the former being a BBA one and the latter an MBA one) and that INBUSH, the AIBS quiz will be outstanding.
Think about this, though. You guys felt like that after ONE day at the cursed place. I go there EVERYDAY!!!

I've been put into deep thinking as to why people think that everything has to be perfect in life. Things don't always work out the way they are planned. the quiz was postponed because of some some genuine reason, how does that make a college not worth going to. And for your knowledge the shirt and pants are for the smarter race of the society beyond your thinking. Our promise to you come next year and stand first the prize money, more than you can digest.

And for the blog please refer to the following points:-

Firstly a. the timings for all the management games was 9 a.m and it's over to us when we plan to keep the game.

b. at amity we are business managers so as to maintain that status we have to wear formal clothes. and secondly coming to a management fest in a casual attire and most importantly a casual attire and most importantly a casual attitude.

c. the prize money wasn't rs. 2000/- it was rs. 2000/- each. and for your info if a management fest is happening we tend to call the biggest person for the quiz and where do you think the money for that comes from? it's on to us who collect the money.

d. the guy's photo on BT Acumen site is not there but if you can read then please refer to the name mentioned on that site.

e. the idiots dressed in smart casuals (as you saw in best manager) were not from amity school of business and ya we do dress up smartly because we belong to a management college.

f. we had already mentioned that there would be only one team to win, and noting more to it.

g. for the solutions for the crowded busses please call 01143434343 easy cabs available through out the day so that people don't suffer.

conclusion:-
people who are offended by reading this blog i am really sorry. we at AMITY "NURTURE TALENT".
for further grievances please contact me personally.

Hi Pavitra

Our main issue with the quiz was the non-transparency with respect to money. Other issues - time delay, transportation difficulties (if everyone could afford the cab fare, I doubt they'd be pissed about the 500 rupee buy-in), just added fuel to the flames.

As for the B T Acumen part - It just doesn't matter. Everyone here has won several quizzes, it proves nothing. I fact, as Sharat pointed out in the post, the fact that a seasoned quizzer would try to pull a fast one like this is all the more shocking.

Further, despite the fact that we were sitting in front of the stage for close to an hour before the quiz started, and were asked to write down our details TWICE, we were not informed of this policy. Had we known, we would have cut our losses and walked.

What's more, we were initially told that there was no second prize since there was a tie for second place. When we pointed out this was not so, and it was checked by the co-ordinator, we were told that there was no second prize since we had been thoroughly beaten by the winning team. When again, we pointed out that we had lost by as close a margin as was possible, given the scoring pattern, we were told not to argue, as this was how it always works. That they should know, being the finalists at BT Acumen.

Getting back to the main point- Sure, it's difficult to get a big name Quiz Master. Colleges deal with these issues all the time, when organising quiz fests. Some of them conduct quizzes themselves, some compromise and hire a lesser known Quiz Master. What they do not do however, is to put the burden of the quizmaster's salary on the participants. Think about it, was the experience you were offering so incredible, that teams would want to part with 500 bucks for it? How many of the teams do you think would have come, had you been upfront about the prizes?

Congratulations for turning a Quiz into a profit-making venture.

"if a management fest is happening we tend to call the biggest person for the quiz and where do you think the money for that comes from?"
Being business 'managers' perhaps you might have heard of a term called 'sponsorship'.

Hi Debasish,

I think you are making the whole matter personal now...First your friends do a childish thing by writing a blog like this.
And secondly we get personal messages quoted by you about the smarter race. i think this would continue and there is no end of writing blogs or comments.
If you have any queries call me personally and i guess i will make sure that you understand what went wrong.
I think we should end this right here because it is a wastage of time.
Plus it was a good spontaneous effort made by you all and we should keep the other things in mind and i posted my comment as to justify my part of the story as your friend earlier said.

This is all i have to say and not taking anything personally...

It seems you have not bothered to read the post and the comments before airing your own. Please do so.

And thank you for your advice. I am working on reducing my arrogance and becoming an extremely humble person.

"I think you are making the whole matter personal now"
Am I? I only quoted from your response.

"First your friends do a childish thing by writing a blog like this"
From what I've heard from people who were unfortunate participants at the quiz - the criticism is justified and we have a right to voice our opinion. It might be difficult for a smarter race (dressed in formals, mind you!) to comprehend but airing one's opinion is NOT childish. This is an open forum and you're entitled to respond (as you have already) too.

"And secondly we get personal messages quoted by you about the smarter race."
I assume you mean I shouldn't have quoted you in my comment. Here, I did it again.

"If you have any queries call me personally and i guess i will make sure that you understand what went wrong."
Atleast you admit that something did go wrong. Hope you do better next time round.

@Yash
"You guys think doing engineering at a college like NSIT you have won the world and this arrogance of yours disables you to take failure at the right spirit."
The team from NSIT came 2nd. We might have won quite a few quizzes but we've done worse too. The problem is not with the result of the quiz. That isn't under discussion. Perhaps it would've been better if you guys were a bit more transparent about the prize money and wouldn't have put the burden of paying the quizmaster with the participants' money.
Oh and btw Non Sufficit Orbis!

And I request you guys to go through the links I had put at the end of my previous comment to know more about your quizmaster.

Dude what smarter race are you talkin abt .... you are the ones who will after finishing your engineering will start flockering around business schools ....will sit for various mba exams ....n u guys dnt knoe the m of management ..... u want to be a part of this race to satisfy your materialistic greeds....... What you guys dnt understand is that the government spends zillions of money on iits,RECs so that good engineers can be born who will create something and not get tempted by the smell of money and join sm big company where you forget the E of engineering......... Whateva you think we are but atleast we are true to ourselve and knoe wht we want to do ..... i hp u gettin the big picture and stop whining abt a quiz contest.....

True. Most engineers flock to B-schools for the big bucks. I guess you guys do so out of a deep seated desire to help the nation.

Its quite easy to tar thousands of engineers with the same brush.

If you guys had glanced at the original posts and following comments, it would become abundantly clear that while we have been quite meticulous about keeping our facts straight and substantiating our statements with data, you have been dealing in gross generalities (e.g. smarter race, money hungry engineers, all you NSIT people are arrogant etc) and utter stupidities (e.g. more money than you can digest).

If you were to take a step back and look at this whole debacle, you would find that despite your fine (and may I add, altruistically inspired management education), it is you who comes across as arrogant and whiny.

Whether you like it or not, our complaints were justified, and a majority of the teams in attendance shared our opinions.

Sharat said...

Mr. Yash Rai,

Try translating the last lines of my earlier post. I am afraid that you have substantiated my statements through your last post.(especially the moodhamate part.)

Yes, I am an arrogant,greedy mortal who will do engineering and end up in a B-School. I am a hypocrite and I have no sense of shame being opportunistic. I may know neither the E's of Engineering or the M's of Management. But I do know one thing for sure:

You hit the S for Stupidity bang on!

Ahh, this made nice reading for a rather dull argument. You guys let them off too easy.
By the way, did Yash not clear any engineering exams either?
Hoping for a follow up entry tomorrow!

Mr. yash u do realise that amity rejection rates and NSIT rejection rates make it amply clear what is the smarter race.

Sir the point about indigestible money and all is the cheapest comment in the glorious traditions of amity parivaar.Man abhi tak hamare jeete hue paise school ne encash karakar nahi diye or the fact that they give empty envelopes in scholarship's name with a message check will com soon.

and u also realise that having only one winner is something truly marvelous.Heck the olympics the pinnacle of sports have 3 medals and 5 commendations.

Thridly mr yash U say that enggs shudnt do mbas then temme can a pure mba manage a technical company or work in nuclear power technology companies and the government doesnt spend crores hoping to produce good engg they spend crores hoping to produce good taxpayers and mbas pay more taxes.Makes more economic sense.

I have never felt more ashamed than ever before.u guys messed up accept it and move on instead of whining.I have a sneaking suspicion that ur quiz blog(if it exists) must read this blog a lot.
and if u are such a gr8 quizzer and management student tell me the connect between
hemline theory leading lipstick indicator and hot waitress indicator e
I have said all this because ppl this blog has been an effing inspiration for me and these ppl by fighting here are bringing disrepute to my school which despite all its shortcomings is a gr8 place to be

arch said...

an awesome argument !!!! makes you forget everything about the initial grievance. these amity people just have got nothing substancial to say, so they just get down to nsit bashing. btw, i can be counted as a neutral here coz i have been in amity, both of them and am currently in nsit. but really, "amity tortures talent", its true, but its so only becoz of the chauhans, who are interested in mothing else but minting money. if you take dem out of the equation, you have a fantabulous institution.
anyway, the war of words above was really entertaining. now i wud just ask everybody on both sides to get on with their lives and stop bickering. auf wiedersehen !!!

topgun said...

Sorry to start this off again,,but had to convey this..
Went for the same Quiz this year, hosted by pornooob. We were charged 300 per team,despite we being school students.
We were told the quiz would start at 10,started at 12:30, thanks to pornob's flight delay :P
Same 2 sets of sucky prelims. and again.. a russian whatever type of a quiz :P
Well would say Amity University is like, the place with which u would associate all loafers with :P
You pay money , you get in.. its the world only unversity with an acceptance rate of 100%.. Just like Empty vessels make the most noise,Amity university(Not school mind you) has the maximum amount of hype surrounding it :P
I would be ashamed of myself if I would ever have to go that college.
Who am I ?
I am from DPS noida, Going to Columbia University soon. This is if the Amity people dare challenge the legitimacy of my views.

Thridly mr yash U say that enggs shudnt do mbas then temme can a pure mba manage a technical company or work in nuclear power technology companies and the government doesnt spend crores hoping to produce good engg they spend crores hoping to produce good taxpayers and mbas pay more taxes.Makes more economic sense.

I have never felt more ashamed than ever before.u guys messed up accept it and move on instead of whining.I have a sneaking suspicion that ur quiz blog(if it exists) must read this blog a lot.
and if u are such a gr8 quizzer and management student tell me the connect between
hemline theory leading lipstick indicator and hot waitress indicator e
I have said all this because ppl this blog has been an effing inspiration for me and these ppl by fighting here are bringing disrepute to my school which despite all its shortcomings is a gr8 place to be

an awesome argument !!!! makes you forget everything about the initial grievance. these amity people just have got nothing substancial to say, so they just get down to nsit bashing. btw, i can be counted as a neutral here coz i have been in amity, both of them and am currently in nsit. but really, "amity tortures talent", its true, but its so only becoz of the chauhans, who are interested in mothing else but minting money. if you take dem out of the equation, you have a fantabulous institution.
anyway, the war of words above was really entertaining. now i wud just ask everybody on both sides to get on with their lives and stop bickering. auf wiedersehen !!!

Sorry to start this off again,,but had to convey this..
Went for the same Quiz this year, hosted by pornooob. We were charged 300 per team,despite we being school students.
We were told the quiz would start at 10,started at 12:30, thanks to pornob's flight delay :P
Same 2 sets of sucky prelims. and again.. a russian whatever type of a quiz :P
Well would say Amity University is like, the place with which u would associate all loafers with :P
You pay money , you get in.. its the world only unversity with an acceptance rate of 100%.. Just like Empty vessels make the most noise,Amity university(Not school mind you) has the maximum amount of hype surrounding it :P
I would be ashamed of myself if I would ever have to go that college.
Who am I ?
I am from DPS noida, Going to Columbia University soon. This is if the Amity people dare challenge the legitimacy of my views.
