Wing Commander Samir Gangakhedkar Sir came up with a marvelous general Quiz . The Quiz turned out to be as beautiful as its name.
The Quiz had a decent participation of 30 people despite the empty streets of Nagpur on a Sunday afternoon owing to festival time. A set of 42 questions with two written rounds diverse in all fields of interest serving everyone’s taste buds just like the different colours during Holi. Total 40 questions on Infinite Rebound and two written rounds one on Politics who’s who and the other one on blossoming flowers.
All the questions were high on fundas and were well researched by the QM. The best part was that the Questions were really workable and elaborative. Also each question had a story behind it which -Wg Cdr Samir explained enthusiastically making the Quiz more relatable. A little bit of toughness also made the participants more engrossed in the Quiz and also lessened the number of pounces. Some interesting connect questions required the participants to refresh the missing links in their grey matters.
The Prize Distribution ceremony took place at the hands of Mrs. Nath and the final standings were as follows-
