NSMQ Gwalior | Review and Questions

Ajay Poonia shares the review and questions from NSMQ Gwalior. You can also get some questions from here
The Gwalior leg of the 8th NSMQ was held in the scenic campus of ITM biz school. Situated about 10km from the main city ITM played host to 40 teams from Gwalior, Ujjain, Indore and even Jaipur. The latter trying to play it smart on its bid to outsmart the rest of the teams by opting for Gwalior as its NSMQ destination. With only 1 point separating the team that came 2nd and the team that stood 7th in the prelims, our task to eliminate 1 team turned out to be extremely difficult. The finals had a decent mix of business, management, sports and current affairs. By the end of the first round it was clear that the fight for the Gwalior NSMQ champion will be between the boys from Jaipur and the boys from the venue host. At the end of the first round Jaipur-35, ITM- 40. This got the LNMIIT students from Jaipur a little impatient as they went for a few negatives in the second round. The pressure got to the ITM boys as well as they focussed more on trying their best to crack each and every question hurled at them instead of strategizing well and challenging others to answer the questions. The more experienced team from LNMIIT, Jaipur held on to their nerve till the end as their bid to outsmart the less experienced teams from MP proved successful when ITM couldn’t identify the athletes mentioned at the end of Paan Singh Tomar while they could identify Shibulal and Kris Gopalkrishnan as the Infosys founders.
Final Scores- LNMIIT- 55, ITM- 44, ITM team 2 with 12
Some questions from the quiz-
1. Known as the Well of Death, this stunt has its origins in the USA. In the stunt, a car or motorcycle is driven on a vertical wall, perpendicular to the ground, defying gravity.The stuntmen are able to perform this stunt as centrifugal forces keep the vehicle adhered to the sides of the well.
How do we know this stunt in hindi?
2. Facing an acute manpower shortage, the Ministry of Statistics and Programme Implementation has joined hands with which government agency to collect data from retail outlets to calculate the rural CPI (Consumer Price Index)?
3. Dewang Mehta, the former NASSCOM chief added what two words to the iconic slogan, “Roti, Kapda, Makan, ____ and _____” focussing on the needs of the emerging 21st century Indian?
4. The Winning Way by Harsha Bhogle & Anita Bhogle marries two fields that share the same set of core attributes — Management and Sports. Fittingly the foreword has been written by X and the epilogue by Y. X and Y?
5. Weighing only 275 grams, Milagrow has launched TabTop, a tablet PC it claims to be the first tablet PC for ________.
TabTop can fit in most handbags and comes preloaded with over 50 applications and is available in four colours-
pink, sky blue, silver and black.

Thank You & Goodbye Quizzing.in – Rohit

Quizzing.in – The Beginning

It was a hot summer afternoon around 6 years back when the idea of collating Quiz Reviews on a single platform struck my tiny little head!

Starting with less than 10 hits a day for the first few days, http://rohitnair.wordpress.com (as Quizzing.in was then known) struck gold from the quality of content that people across the country starting sharing with me.

In due course, word spread and The Quintessential Theory (as it was called then) became the Online resource for Quiz Reviews across the country.

Through my Quintessential journey across the country, I participated and reviewed hundreds of quizzes – shared questions from Quizzes , ‘screwed’ Quizmasters with bad reviews, praised quizhosts for their content and made absolutely no money out of this venture!

With feedback from quizzers across, Quintessential Theory slowly became a one stop shop for Quiz Reviews, Questions and in due course Schedules! Today, I am told every Quizzer worth his salt visits Quizzing .in to get the latest updates in the industry.

My chest bloats with pride!!

Quizzing.in visiting card 

Quintessential Theory become Quizzing.in

In due course, Quintessential Theory became Quizzing. in as I realized the importance of Branding for the site!

In mid 2009, we got funded to improve the site wrt design and technology.

We utilized the complete amount to increase engagement amongst the audience but I’ve always had a tinge of regret that the site remains a single side communication rather than a conversation which I’m sure will change very soon!

Quizzing.in is possibly the only pure Quizzing site that receives over 2000 visitors a day and around 200,000 pageviews a month! Our nearest competitor (if there is any) is not even one-third our size!

3 years back, I threw my shoes into the beautiful world of entrepreneurship and started a wonderful company called QuizWorks which , with a lot of hard work and God’s grace has scaled to becoming one of India’s leading Offline Quiz hosting companies and undoubtedly the country’s #1 digital Quiz company with our reach on the web, facebook and twitter.

QuizWorks acquires Quizzing.in

I am proud to announce today that QuizWorks is buying out Quizzing. in from me and will be handled by an extremely able team of Content and Technology partners to develop the next generation Quizzing engagement platform for all Quizzers across the country.

Personally, I will no longer be heading the site as Editor-in-Chief but will remain a well-wisher and mentor for life!

And for the Inquizitive, I am continuing in the business of Quizzing but taking up the challenge to make quizzing inclusive which a lot of us in the industry have tried to do in the past and I hope I can achieve in the near future!

I’ve had a great journey with core quizzing and fortunately a successful one on both sides and I’d like to thank each and everyone of you for being such a fantastic audience and being loyal to this very niche site for over 6 years!

If you ever have anything to say, feel free to drop a mail or connect with me on any of the networks below!

Till we meet next time, on a different day and a different forum – Keep Quizzing!

Rohit..

And if you have some more time, feel free to have a look at the 6 years of Quizzing. in Timeline below

The Second edition of Tata Crucible, Trichy was held today. We were amazed to see the large number of teams that turned out(Pickbrain mentioned that the count was 192 and it was more than double the count of last year).  It was so large that we did not get seats in the hall. We were then made to sit on the dias on the chairs where the finalists were supposed to sit. At that time, we dint know it was a harbinger for what was going to happen later in the day.

It was a very closely-fought quiz with three teams having a chance to win championship. We(Anand Babu and Vignesh from BIM) came out on top in the end. NITians were the runners-up.  For a fledgling quizzing city like Trichy to have close to 200 teams was an achievement in itself. Pickbrain was quite pleased with it as well.  All the best!!!

Tata Crucible 2012

The biggest Business Quiz for Students is back! 24 cities – 24 champions – 1 National Champion.

Not only is the Tata Crucible a chance to be crowned the Best Business Quizzers in the country but also a fantastic platform to monetize your year long preparations. The Tata Crucible Campus Edition , now in its 8th year, will be hosted by quizmaster Giri Pickbrain Balasubramaniam and will be spread over 50 days!

Rules for the year remain almost the same as the previous years with clearer indications for teams from colleges where there are no centres (participate in the closest centre by geographical distance and all teams from the same college must participate at one centre)

But as usual what surprises us is no action being taken on Professional courses like ICAI and ICWA. Its just unfair to the students of ICAI that they have to hear the brickbats of a 1000 students!!
