Ever heard of the KCircle? No, it is not an underground diabolic cult. The Knowledge Circle was set up in 1972 by a bunch of people predisposed to quizzing. Involved in conducting major quiz competitions, members of this club congregate at the YMCA Secunderabad, every Saturday of the month.
If you have in mind a picture of dull quizzers indulging in humdrum disputing, then you are mistaken. The buzz session is lively, covering everything from rock 'n' roll to etymology. If you want to jump onto the quiz wagon, all you have to do is get to YMCA.
Last week, the quiz of the month was conducted by Dr. Srinivas, and consisted of a warm-up written round, 24 'pick your number' format questions of varying difficulty, and a long connect based on Slumdog Millionaire to round off the quiz. The quiz provided the 'minnows' with several opportunities to upstage teams with a greater assembly of quizzing talent.
This week, Murali Duggineni, Web Editor with Satyam Computers, Hyderabad, will be the quizmaster. The quiz will be anchored by Devarajan.
Please contact Srinivas at 98850-54941 for further details.
