The Kaka Kronicles – episode #4

Where some doubts are expressed on the veracity of some popular quizzing trivia,


While we are on the subject of Desi Trivia Quizzing, I was heavily into it in school, lightly into it while in college and ethereally into it now. The reasons are fairly simple. I used to win a lot at school level (I used to read the newspaper daily while my pnjaabi classmates were scoring chicks), only to find out that there existed certain Bengali dadas who used to make a career out of quizzing while at college. Bongo quizzers in Delhi University were of the belief that “What Bengalis answer today, Quizmasters will ask tomorrow”.

My favourite quiz question of all time. Why were the words “Ranjit, Fazal and Sandesh” very important, especially in the context of espionage during the Pak-Bangladesh war in 1971?
Answer: Not so soon. Go ahead try and guess.
