Quiz for pre-determined qualifiers – audience welcome.

1230PM: The KQA History Quiz by Urmila Lakshmanan and Rajat Gururaj

We will leave ‘what is history?’ to historians like E.H. Carr, but the issue of ‘what is history quiz?’ can be more readily answered by our QMs. A history quiz for and about all ages.

3.30 PM: Pop Ki Kamai by Sai Ganesh 

The 9th edition of the pop culture quiz by Sai ‘city’s finest QM’ Ganesh is here! The annual quiz on movies, music, comics, TV, theatre, internet, and an ominous ‘…other forms of pop culture.’
