Kuwait Times - - WHAT’S ON -

IIT IIM Alumni As­so­ci­a­tion does it again third year in a row by or­ga­niz­ing the big­gest quiz event of the Year, in a spec­tac­u­lar style which has won the hearts of all the quizzers in Kuwait. In fact, the on­set of win­ter has be­come syn­ony­mous with this pop­u­lar Quiz event dur­ing which the prepa­ra­tions by the quiz lovers reach high­est peaks who defy and over­come all the bar­ri­ers of age, pro­fes­sional and per­sonal com­mit­ments with a sole aim of win­ning the cov­eted Mind’s honor of this pres­ti­gious sig­na­ture event of this elite IIT-IIM Alumni As­so­ci­a­tion in Kuwait. The Alumni As­so­ci­a­tion of In­dia’s Pre­mium In­sti­tu­tions, IITs & IIMs, or­ga­nized its spec­tac­u­lar an­nual open quiz pro­gram Q8OQ~2016 for the third year run­ning on 17th De­cem­ber, 2016 at the ma­jes­tic Au­di­to­rium of the Gulf Univer­sity of Science and Tech­nol­ogy, GUST, Kuwait. Though in its third year, IIT-IIM Alumni As­so­ci­a­tion’s quiz has be­come very pop­u­lar among the quiz en­thu­si­asts and gen­eral pub­lic alike.

This year too, the pro­gram pop­u­lar­ity rose ex­po­nen­tially to doozy heights and the num­ber of teams reached new scales cross­ing the high bar set last year in a geo­met­ric pro­gres­sion with the en­thu­si­as­tic par­tic­i­pa­tion of over 150 three mem­ber teams of quiz cognoscenti and afi­ciona­dos from all walks of life, sizes, ages, na­tion­al­i­ties in­clud­ing few over­seas con­tes­tants. The deedy sil­ver sliced shin­ing baldies of baby boomers era, and techno savvy dig­i­tally dulled mil­len­ni­als fought with stu­dent teams of bub­bly bud­ding an­kle biters, ado­les­cent avid zany wizards of high schools and uni­ver­si­ties. The quizmaster too, as al­ways been, was an ex­cep­tion, with his dis­tinc­tive style of high qual­ity quizzing, great sense of hu­mor, im­promptu quick wit and af­fa­ble amaz­ing per­sonal pres­ence. The quiz par­tic­i­pants and the avid en­thu­si­as­tic au­di­ence which in­cluded fair share of girls of the houses, were en­thralled with a great range of in­ter­est­ing ques­tions posed. With unique for­mat aided by ef­fi­cient elec­tronic gad­gets and soft­ware sys­tems, event was con­ducted in a flaw­lessly smooth seam­less fash­ion.

The As­so­ci­a­tion Pres­i­dent, Peeyush Jain wel­comed the dig­ni­taries, quizmaster, and the en­thu­si­as­tic quiz fra­ter­nity and thanked all for mak­ing this event a grand suc­cess. The In­dian Ambassador to Kuwait, His Ex­cel­lency Su­nil Jain in his in­au­gu­ral speech re­called his nos­tal­gic mo­ments with his alma mater of IITDelhi and reaf­firmed the gru­el­ing at these pres­ti­gious IITs pre­pares them to per­form and ex­cel in what­ever field they take up.

All the dig­ni­taries were fe­lic­i­tated with the Me­men­toes. The Pro­gram ended with a vote of thanks pro­posed by Gen­eral Sec­re­tary of the As­so­ci­a­tion San­jay Fuller. He thanked the In­dian Ambassador to Kuwait, HE Su­nil Jain and Mrs Jain for grac­ing the oc­ca­sion both in his of­fi­cial ca­pac­ity as well as an avid quiz buff and Alumni mem­ber. He fur­ther ap­pre­ci­ated and thanked all the spon­sors and guests. He spe­cially thanked GUST for pro­vid­ing the Univer­sity Au­di­to­rium as the venue of this event with all fa­cil­i­ties. Last but not the least; he ap­pre­ci­ated the ef­forts of all the mem­bers of the Alumni As­so­ci­a­tion, es­pe­cially the Core Com­mit­tee mem­bers, for putting up a grand show.
