thanks for the report. looks like the fabulous rivalry between AV and KHSS continues! We should seriously think of having a univ challenge-style face-off between these two talented teams. Can we talk to the respective schools and do it in march?

Try adding Symbi, Loyola, Vikhe Patil and a few others to the mix as well. interesting idea. I think you could talk to them, but March isn't the best time with board exams coming up. maybe June/July would be better.

I think Symbiosis also has a pretty strong team!

This is Siddharth J, a member of KHS quizzing team.
KHS would take away the title in 2009, beating all its arch rivals:be it Abhinav, be it Symbi.
