Good quiz. Some questions were memorable - like the one about tallest peaks in each continent. I liked the fact that there were only 42 questions with no gimmicks. It gave teams enough time to think for each question. Also a lot of good local questions.

Thanks Aniket. I think there was only one local question which was guessable for outsiders too. However there were a few Marathi-based questions. There were no gimmicks because I fell short of time thinking of a theme and variations in round. Also, I had to wrap up before people were frustrated to leave for Landmark! So we kept it short in number of questions, but normal in terms of total duration.
