Q stumped me for sure initially until I recalled my love for quizzes; so for the letter Q, I bring you – Quizzes Galore – Quizzing in India is BIG! Every school has regular quiz contests, quizzes are held at school, regional, state, and national levels; quizzes for all ages; shows on radio, TV, online now, and via magazines and newspapers; in every variety you can imagine, covering topics from everywhere.
Q: How does that fit into my theme? (My theme: Favorite Childhood Memories, be it games or books or food or movies or
just random somethings – with one additional twist – these are memories I
would like to build in the future as well – with my kids, if possible!)
A: I was a quiz lover as a kid, taking part in contests at school, in our neighborhood quiz contests, trying to answer the questions on TV shows before the contestants did, and quizzes in magazines/newspapers were not spared (regardless of the topic/theme).’Quiz Time‘ hosted by one of the most popular quiz-masters in India – Siddhartha Basu as well as the ‘Bournvita Quiz Contest‘ – one of the first quiz shows on TV in India were among my favorite shows growing up.
While I am not sure if I can have the kids participate in contests at the same level here in the US (they do not have too many organized in their schools or such, unfortunately), I hope to cultivate a love for quizzes in them and with that, a love for knowledge, for learning, and curiosity about the world around and beyond them. They watch Jeopardy, Wheel of Fortune, and other similar shows with me and sometimes remark (on those days when I seem to know all the answers!) that I should take part in the shows 🙂
A quiz for you:
Q to the reader: Are quizzes your thing? Or are shows like Family Feud more you? Maybe you are a Wheel of Fortune type?
