The Quizzers of the Delhi Quizzing Circuit

The Quizzers
As this quizzing season now dies a slow death,as a first year I wish to on behalf of the facchcha lot thank the quizzers of the New Delhi circuit for making it a great time for us:-) Now in-ur-end-oes involved over here.

The reviews for the quizzes participated in will follow and then, separate posts on whatever total questions we can post :-)We may not be bright but then,we are meticulous :-)

Back to profiling these quizzers to whom we have been introduced to,

Dr.Bhattacharya aka Bhatta aka The Grand Daddy of Delhi Quizzing-----A legendary quizzer,whose best friends through time have been Lincoln,Hitler and Monroe...Jokes apart,his Business quiz at SRCC was a great job done(review follows)..very workable and the gyaanvardhak....is seen at College quizzes too often...but a knowledgable man,desrervedly starting this list.

Sayeed-----Dethroned by Sharat and Manan last year at Miranda,he is a force to be reckoned with.If he doesn't qualify he eats all the audience chocolates...Best of luck fo the IAS mate:-)

Kunal...not Funny---Seen him around,in the First Family of New Delhi Quizzing,The limited part of the Sports Quiz I saw was very good.Aagey dekhte hain..more experiences should follow...

Rawat----Anang/Anirvan/Anand.....eats up all the questions in infinite bounce,is committed to DD,eats the costliest item on the menu....George Soros in the making

DD---aka Debasish aka DD jee....It may seem convoluted but the guy is not..straight,mufat,in your face,great at cracking sexual in-ur-endoes....Debasish is not the average 4th year...after all he had his first peg....a big earner mind you...though with money he is Ebenezer Scrooge...sabka paisa khaaya hai

Jaideep Shankar Jagannathan----aka JJ The name takes a line....NSIT/DCE topper legend....he is famous for making two member teams as Jaideep and Jagannath...Qualifies convincingly always...Authority on Western music and Literature..Most of the time I just nod along

Abhimanyu---aka Abx....he is seen only on the big money events....bachchon ke liye baaki choti moti cheezein chhod dete hain....IEEE also eats up his time...but the only great 3rd year quizzer I know.

Sharat---Naughty Nambissan aka Shararat aka Nasty Nambissan aka Shadymaster....his run this year has been exhillarating...he looks at posters with disdain and says yeh tau jeet hi liya...aur posters dikhao....authority and my nemesis in Indian mythology---he will surely pickup Cindy Crawford-like someday with Answers like Sushma and Bones of Dadichi....

Manan----IIT Kanpur..he travels along with the NSIT troupe and helps us gain respectability....and few wows around...is an Aamir Khan fan with his scarf...forms one half of the shady brothers along with Sharat....Pustak Mahal and Wildlife king....Nice quiz chooser....Paise waala again

Ankit ka Bhavanaon ka aadmi aka Wise techie....A committed quizzer with biz and tech leanings...Tech wise guru...a Mach 3 worshipper...Debasish fan..Has his quizzing ethics in place and has nice blogs...there...more money for you now..:-)

Kishan aka ICE Shadymaster----A hard worker,committed but seen rarely these days due to his projects/padhai(?)...Talks passionately of cantilever bridges...All in all he is another Southie in the Quizclub...Need to see more of him...

Harish Alagappa---Writes in Chaos Verse...a Radihead junkie...A "Do you know this" man..Averse to losing...has the best hair...Own the copyright to 42

Nitesh Bhasin....Bhasin the sutta man...Bollywood ka Boss.....can describe George Clooney as Gay and the singer and the sunglasses but cannot identify Careless Whisper...knows parinda,Gardish and what not...Intent on finishing his degree on time...IIM seems a step away with his intense GD preparation..Note:- He knows Manohar Comics too

Kaustuv---The "Bura" Bengali man who manages to qualify everywhere even if he is alone...but is tricked into splitting his money with DD...Hindu's last Samurai as people note

Rishabh Banthia---The CBS lad who knows just about everything in the Biz world and manages to not be in your face and obnoxious about it...A good CBS lad...thats a rarity you see

Lohit..CBS...is disappointed by normalized Business quizzes...passionate...though sometimes he faces an overflow of emotions crisis...

Rohit/Nikhil......Master Bates and the small guy...Inhein fight maarni aati hai...They are schizophrenic like John Nash and think that they are the only ones that qualified...Famous quote---"I know this"...Good guys though

Neha...CBS..dunt know her though Ma'am if you are reading this..it is spelt ADAM SANDLER

Justin/Stephens lot--seniors---The "What happened man" in their fluent Malayalee accent they manage to disarm and win you over...A force to reckon with..

Sujay/Noel/Siddharth etc..Stephens...Facchas..last seen creating a ruckus at LSR...they are zealous about quizzing,demand their Lays and they are the future of Stephens quizzing
Iitains...Backdoor entry..they make the quizzers wait for eternity...put up a good fight...But great "fight" maarne waale...Rendezvous,4 quizzes,good standard,and Aatma=Arul Mani (KQA) was an experience though.
Fachchas

Udit---Jaideep in the making...his percentage,meticulous question noting down and Western music knowledge is anything to go by...his winnings have been growing day by day...and all fachchas to trouble him if you can't get anything off the stingy seniors..His prelims curse is broken and is more famous for the Hey Gorgeous quote

Sahil/Ankit Mahedru---tipped to be Manorama quizzers..they don't go with the crowd:-)...Jamia champions...they are shady but need tuning
Surya/Rohil/Peter...need to see more of them....wish them luck for the IIT..or maybe they have a much better social life than me:-)

ME=Roshan= "I am what I am" or "Ehyeh Asher Ehyeh"

If you want any others mentioned...comments are open...Reviews and questions of the quizzes held in this the quizzing season,in a week

Ek sawaal

Name the now non-defunct clothing company,which has in its family line a test cricketer of yesteryears and explain why it was in demand during the making of BR Chopra's Mahabharata:-)

kunal said...

two things
1. wtf is the first family of quizzing?
2. bhatta is not that old to hang out with hitler, he is getting on in the years, maybe. he is going to model for the Haaji mastaan owned 30 plus soon. and his age is a mystery

and one bonus question- im not known as funny anymore, u can call me kunal. and yes, thanx for the good words on the SR sports quiz. i wish u had stayed and seen the finals, and taken the elims. its a pity that kachra venky gets the review while KQ doesnt. i hope we are not too twisted with our connects :)

and yes, i demand a reply on this.

kunal said...

i like the motilal quiz
that sounds fun

and bhatta doesnt hang out and come to college quizzes to take part anymore. correct this please.

Tikna said...

@Kunal - Mr. Bhatta did come to the wildlife quiz at IP college for women.

kunal said...

i didnt know that
did he participate?

Tikna said...

Yes, he and Syed participated and qualified and eventually came 3rd.

kunal said...

interesting
the plot thickens

any which way
im responsible for moi own actions
and i shalt not been as a participant in a college quiz

some one called Mr Batra or some name like that did make a meal of me participating here and there, i hope you guys didnt share the same fuck all school of thot.

roshan said...

@Kishan:Will edit ASAP

@Kunal:
First family of quizzing is an inside joke.made by fachchas at Rendezvous.You,Bhatta and Ms.Archana were doing exceedingly well so...Arul Mani became Aatma so don't mind:-)

Dr.Bhattacharya has gotten his appreciation where due (read SRCC Biz Quiz) but his coming to IP,Khalsa etc doesn't make a good impression.I am not one of the "Bhatta" haters,quite the contrary.But maybe a just for open quizzes policy and/or a higher EQ might do the trick.

Do send questions---prelims/finals if you can.Maybe then KQ can get a good review :-)

UDit said...

I think the description on Roshan is not a very informative one, and rather tell him to say anything about himself, i thought i would add something to it.
Roshan: Roshan aka DD Junior aka leader of the-charge-of-the-facchas-brigade, best known for this enormous capacity for movies, biz quizzing and mythology. His witty one-liners are reminiscent of DD Sr aka DD ji. :-)

kunal said...

hey
u guys are highly capitalist!!

just wont write a review without the questions.
will send u some select stuff.
and yes, that quiz was an open one, bhatta came for that. its a pity that it was a mahashady affair

i think that matched the venky and the motilal quizzes

please write a detailed report on the venky QM. i wana hear about it.

and yes, im not known as funny any more
i can press charges, please change it. :)

peter said...

the ims quiz at venky...well i cant really make up my mind about it...see the QM had some questions prepared..but then from the impression i got he was jus making up questions on the spot and shooting questions...for example there was a question on frank ribery then the next question was what is his name after he converted to islam...so basically the QM was maaroing sponti...but all in all i think the quiz was quite good..even though i didnt qualify

kunal said...

good luck
it smells of a shady quiz
frank ribery is an ok footballer
his islamic name however, is less important

and yes
good thing that im out of the college scene

Debasish said...

Rawat is Anang Rawat... Anirvan is a different quizzer altogether.
And do call me DD no need for the 'jee'... I'm afraid I shall be turned into a three-letter acronym otherwise.

roshan said...

I know that but at Motilal Nehru College...Rawats name was called out as Anirvan.
And Udit...Debasish is more like Roshan Senior:-)

Harish Alagappa said...

Thanks for the not-unkind words, Roshan.

The IMS-Venky thing was crap. But I got 3 x 10^3 rupees out of it, so no complaints. And yes, I don't trust QMs who look like they're recieving qs from divine intuition rather than read out of a placard/sheet of paper.

@ Kunal:
Relax. You and Bhatta need to lighten up a bit. As for the Batra incident... 'twas almost a year ago. I know your memory's impeccable (hence the success at quizzes), but come on!
And how old is Bhatta? Seriously. Ten bucks say 45 approx.

kunal said...

harish dude
its not abt how long it was, it was crap and an insane argument. he just couldnt come to terms with not winning against me

he shud have taken a raincheck

he rarely used to win otherwise when i didnt even take part which means that HE has a problem and not me

and as per bhatta's age goes, u owe me 10 bucks

Harish Alagappa said...

@ Kunal.
Damn. What's the right answer?
As for Batra having a problem... buddy, you don't know the half of it!
Btw, heard you came 2nd in the NatGeo Genius thing? Congrats.

kunal said...

well as u put it, if he s that screwed up, may god bless him

but may i never cross paths with him again

btw, thanx for the comments man

it was an epic ride for me, and do watch it. its gonna be good

bhatta is only 30 btw

and yes, i do miss college quizzing. but alas, i m not student ne more
