With the Business Line corporate quiz Cerebration coming to Coimbatore on January 12, it is celebration time in the city!

That the programme has established itself in the quiz map of the country is proven by the fact that the number of cities where the event is held this year has doubled from last year with six cities holding the event compared with three last year.
