We have our first live quiz of the season with a quiz by BCQC's Ramanand Janardhan. This is a re-run of a Nihilanth Quiz he conducted at IIM Calcutta a few years back. Shubhankar will be bringing his new buzzer to the quiz so we should have fun experimenting with the pounce format.

Vikram will be asking the questions since JR can't make it to Mumbai.

Vikram Joshi (Questions set by Ramanand J)
When: 3 PM, Sunday, 15 April 2012 (Please be there by 2:45 PM for team assignments)
Where: Pinstorm, Ground Floor, Swati House (Next to Kotak Bank on Linking Road), North Avenue, Santa Cruz (W).
