Know Kolkata Quiz | Quiz Review

Know Kolkata Quiz’ held at Modern High School for Girls, part of the ongoing ‘Kolkata Festival’ saw some brilliant contests. Quizmaster for the morning was Mir. The quiz was all about who knew his or her city the best.
The parents also participated in the quiz along with their children, which made it all the more interactive and fun. The quiz made parents feel like school children once again, sitting on stage participating in a school quiz.
There were eight teams with each team consisting of two schoolgirls with their respective parent. The first round was called ‘mixed bag’ where each team had to choose a subject on which they were quizzed.
Subjects varied from language, public buildings, clubs, markets, sports, politics and literature to fiction. The variety in subjects and the questions asked made the session very interesting and each team did superbly in the first round.
This was followed by ‘who am I’ which was about guessing a given personality or subject through a clue. The ‘audio round’ followed next. Then there was quite an innovative round called ‘make the connection’. Each team was given a set of four words and they had to find a connection between them. Some teams struggled to find a connection while for others it was a cake walk.
‘Audience round’ saw the audience interacting and taking part in the quiz. It was quite a break for the contestants before the ‘buzzer round’ which was for the quick thinkers.
The quiz ended with team D winning the first prize. Team B was the runner-up. The quiz was followed by an exquisite exhibition called Magical Kolkata which was a joint effort of students and their parents

Nuclear Energy Quiz @ SIMT | Quiz Review

Nuclear energy is a clean and pollution-free means to generate electricity and India must actively encourage its use to keep pace with the rising energy demand. This was the consensus of students after an interactive quiz session on energy scenario in India. The programme was held at Sevdie Institute of Management and Technology (SIMT) on Tuesday.
A short animation film titled ‘Meet Mr Budhiya’ which portrays through comic characters the change of heart among villagers who have fears about a nuclear power plant, was screened before a group of more than 100 engineering students of SIMT. After the screening, a few questions were asked about energy and those students who gave correct answers were given prizes.
The questions included teasers such as the use of radiation in daily life, in agriculture and medical care; comparison of nuclear energy with other non-conventional forms as solar and wind energy and the comparatively lesser damage to the environment in production of nuclear energy.

Galaxy 2011 | Quiz Review

Galaxy 2011, after being postponed twice, was finally conducted in the cramped auditorium of JIMS, Kalkaji on the 26th day of November. Cramped not because of the small size but because of the number of teams that turned up for the quiz(80+), with a few teams from Hyderabad, Bangalore and Kolkata. After a quick little yoga exercise to switch off the cell phones, the 25 question prelims began. The prelims were a mix of business, brands, current affairs and sports.
With a difference of 4 marks separating the sixth team from the seventh, the selection of six teams was a task well cut out. The teams that made it to the finals were from IILMx2, FMS, IIFT, Hansraj and Sri Venkateswara College. The finals had 4 rounds- Uchhal Kud, Iski Topi Uske Sar, Zero Katta and Ae! Kya Bolti Tu. After the relatively easy initial rounds, the teams were all warmed-up for the high octane barrage of questions that were to follow. And the two teams that dealt with them with ease were the teams from Venky and FMS who were well versed with their Pixar and La Liga, while IIFT who messed up with their Tennis Grand Slam, was unable to build on the momentum of their foundation. After the end of the penultimate round the scorecard read- 12(Hansraj), 16(IILM), 21(IILM), 27(IIFT), 38(Venky) and 49(FMS).
For the final round the teams had to switch to the top gear as it was time to perform or perish – do or die at every question. With two teams getting eliminated after every round it came down to the last two questions. With Venky at 42 and FMS at 49 the quiz was all set for a thrilling finish. The boys from Venky were in no mood to make life easy for FMS as they opted for a 15 pointer and they got it right too. Scorecard before the final question- Venky- 57, FMS- 49. FMS now had two choices, either opt for an 8 pointer and come level with Venky and test their knowledge (and luck) in the tie-breaker or go for a 15 pointer and win it fair and square. But when FMS identified him as Nek Chand, Venky did a barely audible high-five and exchanged smiles since they knew they were going back home with deeper pockets than FMS.
Final Scores- Venky- 57, FMS- 41, IIFT- 34

QOTB- Review and Questions

TAPMI’s flagship event QOTB (Quiz on the Beach) was an engaging and entertaining evening, hosted by renowned quizmaster Avinash Mudaliar.
In the first of its kind, Tapmi and the QM decided to have a crossword to keep the audience engaged before starting the prelims.
The prelim was extremely brilliant and IMO, some questions deserved final status.

The finals consisted of 5 rounds with 2 dry, 2 theme and one personality based buzzer round.

Tejaswi Udupa(Yahoo) and Ramkey (KPMG) started the quiz in style and maintained their lead till the last question. The team from Cognizant (Shubham and Venkatesh) came a close second.

The quiz, on a whole, was fantastic- wrt content, presentation and punctuality (considering participants had to catch early buses)

Wish to see many more lively Quizzes on the Beach. You can find below the prelims and questions from the crossword.
