Father Agnel School (Gautam Nagar) will be holding their annual Agnel Talent Fest 2007 from 30th August 2007 to 1st September 2007. It is one of the most prestigious events in Delhi, albeit slightly irritating because they award themselves a position in almost each and every event and then *gracefully decline to accept* it. This year, the theme is Global Warming, which I think is bullshit (the notion of global warming, not the topic).
The ATF’s Exquizzit, their quizzing event is one of the best and the toughest quizzes in Delhi, and sure hope that on 1st September the DPS VK Quiz Club does something in it. Joy Bhattacharya, the brain behind ESPN School Quiz, and one of the lead researchers at ESPN. He has also worked with the team behind Kaun Banega Crorepati, University Challenge, and India’s Child Genius. Boy, is he an amazing quizmaster, and his quizzes are so fun.
Now that’s a question many people from the DPS VK QC and the Code Warriors (there are two tech events) have asked me a lot. For exact directions from your place, the best place is www.mapmyindia.com. Here are two general maps of the area though, click on the images to get an enlarged view.

- ATF Exquizzit 2006 Prelims (PDF): Don’t get conned into thinking that the quiz is easy on the basis of this admittedly very easy paper – the competition is fierce and qualifying cut-offs are high. The stage rounds then teach you what trivia quizzing actually is.
