Quiz at Hansraj

At last I struck gold in the quizzing circuit, the last one from NSIT quizzers to do so. What I am going to tell you may shock you. The quiz organizers stated the rules. 15 questions in 90 seconds. Yes, you have read it right, 6 seconds per question. After the prelims, we were tied with 2 other teams for the 3rd and 4th places on stage. So there was a tie breaker...the quizmaster told me to whisper the answer in his ear...another absurdity which was ended by me by suggesting the idea of writing on sheets.
In which country were dogs worshipped as gods?(even its an anagram).
Another one followed, Which country has the lowest GDP? How the hell am I supposed to know that?

I literally had a fight with the quizmaster over this question.
Q. A body moving in a circular motion has ________ acceleration.
Our answer >>> centripetal.
Their answer >> > variable.
After that what followed were lines like ' decision of the quizmaster is final'....'please don't create a fuss'...
What is the cash prize given to a khel ratna awardee? I was insane enough to know that ... ...a laptop belonging to one of the teams had to be fixed for the visual rounds (proof that the team was surely involved in the preparation of the quiz)...but it couldn’t be done... so, Round Cancelled...before the last round at my request the scores were announced and not surprisingly we had been allotted 10 points less. At the end we were 2nd at 80 points...adrift from the bugged team of hansraj by 10 points (the same which weren't given to us for the acceleration one). At the end the quiz master still had the guts to invite me for the quiz next year too. I am seriously thinking of taking his cell number and pasting it in one of the DTC buses under the tagline..." khujli, khansi, petdard ke liye sampark karein"...
And now i am revealing the names of the culprits. They are from the 'Zoological and Botany Society ' of hansraj...slap them where ever you see them. They are a menace to the society who organize events so pathetically.

** The best thing about the quiz was the refreshments of Mc aloo burger.

Tell ya what...a couple of non-quizzing events organised in NSIT only were like this only. When you give the responsibility to ppl who know shit about the work given to them, this happens.

PS - I am the only remaining loser around. Phew .
