"Season finale - And I am at a Loss for words"

IP College for Women-Media Quiz Review - by Surya Kiran Sharma

Disclaimer
All the statements within “ “ are not a part of my imagination and have been put here in their most original form.

The quiz,which we went for as the last of the season,turned out to be a complete laugh riot(for those who were present there).First the quiz started 3 hours late,scheduled time being posted on orkut by _____ as 1pm.The whole affair delayed due to the lunch for Vinod Dua,Lilette Dubey,Prahlad Kakkar and some other guests.Till then we were entertained by Nitesh Bhasin.
The quiz was again delayed as we were made to wait for some teams and in the end the call came to Abhinav Gandhi who at that time happened to be sitting in the seminar room.When called,he was asked the most obscure question- “You Have?”.

The prelims were mainly a showcase of Bhasin’s comments,which received remarks from the audience like: “You both please shut up”,the other being Harish Alagappa . “You should have some etiquettes while sitting in a quiz.”

Some of the rules for the prelims were:
1 minute will be given for each question which will start after I finish the question.
Each team should have 2 and only 2 members.
The quizmaster,Arindam.was welcomed by a hug from Bhasin which got him the comment of the day-“You should get a special prize for being the most offensive person.”

The finals were a decent affair with some questions being made on the spot.The Bhasin wagon rolled here too and got special mentions from LSR and the home team members,all remembering him for his heroics.Not to mention all the talks going on during the quiz not at all related to the topic.
The prizes included aroma candles and books like ‘Some Great Men’ and ‘Famous Qoutes’.All in all a perfect ending to the season with special thanks to everyone present in the seminar hall for making this quiz a memorable one.

Some of the questions-
1) Which was Salim Durrani’s first movie?
2) In what school did Aamir Khan teach in the movie ‘Taare Zameen Par’?
3) Connect: James Bond, 1997 India-England Sharjah match, MCC team to visit Afghanistan
4) Connect IRMA and Shyam Benegal.
5) Which was Salil Ankola’s first tv serial?(shady one)

ANSWERS

1. Charitra 2. Tulip School 3. Stephen Fleming 4. Manthan 5. Chahat aur Nafrat

(P.S. - Surya says Ans 3 isn't 100% confirmed.. You can dou your own research )

Agreed it was a funny quiz! But dont complain so much! And yes, your dear friend this so called Bhasin.. was simply a real pain, the very famous Mahima can still murder him! All that can be forgotten because of all the jokes we shared with the NSIT guys sitting in front of us(the home team)!!
