After its first meet-up,Gyaan.in is hosting its first quiz at IIT-Delhi. I have no idea how they managed to get some space at IIT-Delhi but then I couldn’t care less. It’s IIT! Gyaan.in started by Ankur Banerjee has grown into Delhi’s major online quizzing hub. It gets traffic form all over the world and has members from all over the country though the majority being from Delhi.
I’d like to make a confession here. I was one of the very first members of the “the ‘nothing official about it’ indian quiz forum” (10th member). I participated a few times in discussions but was then drawn towards Mafia Wars which led to ever deceasing visits to the Forum after which I completely forgot about it. Now almost an year has passed since it was set up and now it has about 369 actively participating members.
The details for the quiz to be held at IIT-Delhi are as Follows:

You may also refer to the original thread started on Gyaan.in by one of the quiz-masters specially for this quiz. Alternatively You can also see Aditya’s post on this.
PS: It may seem ironical but even after writing this post I might not turn up for the quiz though my team will surely be there. The reason due to which I might not turn up is very disturbing. Readers discretion is advised.
