The only reason why an AFMC team doesn't win 'Scam Bhatt' is because a faculty member conducts the quiz... unlike the eliminations...
With such an ostentatious and sumptuous registration 'fee' and shady eliminations, good luck with participation in the following years.
Or wait, you can bring in more in-house teams to participate.

"Set..." should also say "The compilers of KQA's Mahaquizzer", for over half the questions in the finals were directly from Mahaquizzers of the past. :-)

Not a regular general quizzer but catching up.

As a fauji kid, and ex-georgian I was slightly amused by the young cadets trying to impress their instructors. I am sure the officers were cringing every time one of the young boys said, "And Sir has..."

Reminded me of North Korea and Dear Leader.

But I do admire the W batch for continuing this effort in memory of their batchmate. Something for everyone to learn from. 25 years is no mean feat.

My only wish is quizzes start on time. This is the second time I have seen a AFMC quiz being delayed more by more than an hour. Really puts one off, as Saturday is precious time best spent on Beer.
