Qriosty 2K8 Credits

Qriosity 2K8 in memory of Subhankar Nag held on the 23rd of August 2008 at the Triguna Sen Memorial Auditorium in Jadavpur University was a grand succes .

The event in memory of Subhoda would have been unimaginable without the backing of Subhoda's family and friends with whom lie our condolences for their loss. The loss has also been immense for the Quizzing community in general and in particular for us, the members of Enquiry; who deeply feel the absence of the man behind Enquiry and Qriosity.

The success of Qriosity 2K8 was the result of some real hard work put in firstly by Enquiry's lifetime "CEO" Kunalda and a few lesser mortals like myself (Robin), Siddhartha, Arpanda, Sarbajit, Anirban, Shabbir, Shubhrojyoti, Bag,Rajarshi, Proteek, Debarghya, Sudeshna and if there is anybody whose name i've forgotten to mention please forgive my ignorance.

The event would have been impossible without the support of our much-loved ex-students including Pushpolda, Senada, Basabda, Kartikda, Aritrada, Debratnada, Paddyda, Dhimanda, Swarnangshuda, Joydeepda, Debamitrada, PPTda, Tangoda, Jishnuda, Proshenda, Shatabdidi, Anindyada, Sharmiladi,Sayanda, Arijitda, Aritrada,Shantanuda, Arindamda, Shamantakda, Nitinda, Vijitda,Akashda, Suvagatada..... Tintinda (thanks for for your generous support each year) and of course Joyda who took time out of his busy schedule to come to Kolkata and host the general quiz.

No event is complete without the backing of sponsors and we received a generous helping from the people at Telegraph (Thank you Rishinda), Hindalco, The Chatterjee Group, Zapak gameplex, IMS, Linc, Radio Mirchi, Shoppers Stop and Radio JU.

We were guided all along by Dr. Bappa Mallik (Director of Youth Welfare Department) and Proloyda also provided his incessant inputs.

Both the quizzes were fantastic and needless to say the quizmasters Sounakda (Bizmania) & Joy Bhattacharjya (General) did an incredible job.

And last but not the least there would have been no event without all the students who turned up for the quizzes. This year we had 55 teams for the Biz quiz and 115 for the general which is the biggest in Qriosity's history. We had teams from IIT Kgp, BIT Mesra, NIT Dgp, NIT Jamshedpur, NIT Rourkella...etc..thanks to all of them for being a part of our event.

This will be the first time I'll not be around during Qriosity. It's really heartwarming to see how Qriosity has progressed by leaps and bounds from our days in the AC Canteen TT Room !! Take a bow guys, you rock !! We simply could'nt have asked for a better show.
Don't forget to share the success story of Qriosity 2K9 with some of us who would unfortunatery not be there around to share the same.
