Quiz on the 16th of December

In the mists of time, when the world was young, and Evil did not walk the face of all the lands, the Hyderabad Quiz Club was formed. Month after month, it was the last bastion against the arrayed forces of Boredom and Ignorance; where men were real men, quizzers were ravening despos, and small furry creatures from Alpha Centauri were figments of Douglas Adam's imagination. And we were treated to one good quiz after another. Ere long, November happened, and no quiz came around.

And some things that should not have been forgotten were lost. History became legend, legend became myth, and for two months The Quiz passed out of all knowledge and memory. Until when chance came, it ensnared a new quizmaster. The Quiz came to the creature Pattanayak, who took it deep into the verdure of Chikoti Gardens. And there, it consumed him. The Quiz brought to Pat unnatural long night-outs. For countless months, it poisoned his mind. And in the gloom of Pat's apartment, it waited. Darkness crept into the Hyderabad quizzing world. Rumor grew of a shadow in the East, whispers of a nameless fear, and The Quiz perceived its time had now come.

But, soft! what light through yon window breaks? It is Bhubaneswar, and Priyambad is the sun. And he comes back to us now, at the turn of the tide, not to mention after a strenuous attempt at CAT, to conduct the December edition of The Quiz. The cry goes around that the exam didn't go so well, so the quizmaster is quite intent on roasting unsuspecting quizzers on the spit of interrogation to get back at those evil paper setters. Pat has ranged the Outer Worlds on a chariot drawn by his trusty steeds (who answer to the names of Google, Wikipedia, IMDB and Raghu) in the Quest for the Definitive, Cult question of the Millenium, and rumour has it that he has finally acquired this Brahmastra.

So be there if you want to watch Priyambad unleash one missile after another, it will be the perfect ending for 2008.
