It is wisely said, what you do not know you do not appreciate.
So to increase the love for our country, Department of Students Welfare organized the India Quiz on 9th August 2016 in AT – 15,16 at 9 am.
India Quiz upholds the essence of knowledge about our country in every field, in every aspect in depth. With a culture this rich and a heritage this valuable, it becomes one of the most interesting events to kick start the Independence Week Celebration. The quiz was open to all students of the college and received participation from all departments alike, with a total participation of 22 teams (44 participants).
The entire event was divided into 4 rounds. The 1st round was MCQ round, which had general knowledge questions about India as a whole. Then 2ndround was a Puzzle round. Each team was given a puzzle to solve, a dialogue formed on solving the puzzle and then they had to identify the movie and the actor. Since everyone has a craze for movies it becomes an interesting and interactive round. Ragini Sharma, 4th year BDS, MRDC hosted the event. The 3rdround was divided into 4 categories, namely; mythology, culture, history and geography. Each team had to answer a question from each category. The 4thround, the final round, had the top 4 teams. It was a rapid fire round; the questions were from current affairs in India.
After a very interactive and informative session of questions and answers, the event came to a close. The teams competed very well, but since only one team could win, Shailesh Rathi (5th sem B. Tech Mech., MRU) and Kanishk Tyagi (5th sem B. Tech Mech., MRU) were declared as winners.
We hope to continue holding the quiz and keep spreading the knowledge.
