“It (the planning of questions) started a couple of weeks before but most of the work was done in the last two days,” said Ashwin Mathur, second-year, Electrical and Electronics, MIT. This was the first time that Ashwin and Ranjib Rudra, second-year, Mechanical, MIT debuted as quiz masters in an inter-college quiz. Ranjib said,” It’s a brilliant experience. The crowd could have been more than what we expected. Everybody had fun. My motive of having a prelim was that everyone has fun whether or not the finals are harder.” || Photograph Courtesy: Aditya Mathur


The audience wasn’t disappointed, and the entire room was filled with excitement and murmuring of the participants who were jumping or slumping into their chairs depending upon whether they knew the answers. there were objections given to hints and the students racked their brains to solve the questions. The quizmasters touched almost all the major genres of TV series, films, and dramas. || Photograph Courtesy: Aditya Mathur
