  1. Brad’s Drink?? Sorry i dont know..
    It came at ET Pune 2009..
    Check Bizdom..
    Chuck it..

    I Roll Volvo is repeated twice in the same quiz i feel..
    Someone really needs to tell Giri that his London Prelims also reach here..n his national prelims are on the blogosphere even before he leaves the audi winding up the show..

  2. I dont blame him 🙂
    It happens when u do a quiz everyday.. New companies arent incorporated at the rate of new quizzes! 😉

    I’m guessing my blog might have been cursed a million times by now by various QMs..

    There are QMs who are not willing to share prelims questions as they are unable to repeat!

    But till I’m on this, the questions will keep flowing, thats a promise.


  3. Rohit carry on the good work! Quizmasters should earn the fabulous sums of money they get for the marque events like Brand equity & crucible.
