AIMA 11th National Management Quiz for Corporates-Mumbai Prelims

At 5:30 in the chilly Alibag's morning I was woken up by three alarms ringing in unison.Woke Up.Slept again :)This went on for next 30 mins when I realized that I needed to be up and running if I really had  to take part in a quiz(and that too my first corporate quiz) after a hiatus of around 7 months.Had to wait for about 30 mins to catch the first ferry/catamaran from Mandwa(Agneepath & Vijay DinaNath Chouhan's name is what comes to mind) to Gateway Of India.After an hour of ferry ride,instead of catching the slow local from Churchgate which would take me to Vile Parle caught the fast local in a hurry.Result:had to get down at Bandra to catch the slow local to Vile Parle.Finally when we (me and my partner Atul) landed up at the venue we felt as if we have come to the wrong place as we were the only two guys in jeans and tshirts with everybody around us in formals and suits(it was a CORPORATE quiz:P).Leaving our adventures aside,a total of 28 teams participated considering the steep entry fee of Rs 7000 for a team that was a good number.Jacob Kurian was the quizmaster who had a total of 30 ques for the prelims out of which 29 I have posted here.Enjoy this post.Will post the finals in my next post :)
