Posted by The Visitor மேல் மே 31, 2007

Vinod Ganesh of ‘Mostly Thoughtless‘ has announced the The QFI Open Quiz 2007 which is conducted in Chennai.

Apart from being original, well researched and immensely entertaining, the QFI Open also aims at making quizzing a fun experience for everyone involved. It will try and bring to a wider audience the same mix of light-hearted fun and serious high-standard quizzing that is seen at QFI’s fortnightly meetings.

Bare-bones details (is that an oxymoron?): For more information see the above link.

Date: 3rd of June 2007 (Sunday)
Schedule: Prelims – 14:00 p.m. and Finals – 15:45 p.m.
Team size: Maximum of 3 members
Registration Fee: Rs. 50 per team. (This fee is waived for school teams. The registration fee must be paid at the registration desk in front before the quiz.)
Venue: ‘Tattvaloka’ Auditorium
No. 76 (Old No. 138), Eldams Road
Teynampet,
Chennai 600018
Ph: 044 24328124 / 25 / 26
Sample Question: The members of the Muduvar tribe, which inhabits the mountain ranges around Valparai (Tamil Nadu) and Munnar (Kerala) in the Western Ghats, have a unique method for calculating their ages. What is it?
Answer: They calculate their age with the blossoming of the Kurinji flower, which blooms only once every 12 years.

Home coming

Posted by பிரேமலதா மேல் மே 3, 2007

I’m in Madras for the first time in five years. Practically everyone I’d met in those years assured me that I wouldn’t recognize Madras at all. ….

After about four days here, I’m astounded by how little it has changed. Places I remember from my college days are exactly where they used to be – …….

The streets are as full of Mamas on their scooters as they are with younger men who look cool despite the April heat because they are on their Yamahas

…… 

As I laugh helplessly at these and a myriad other outrageous innuendos and real complaints, I realize that I am very much home indeed.
