    It is a non-defence quiz and you can ask anything related to India what you believe an Indian should know. Aim of this quiz is to create awareness about our own country. So feel free to ask questions about our history, culture, our natural assets, diversity of our population- whatever you feel contributes in our knowledge about India- the wonderland.

    You are right DD. Now it is your turn to ask the next question in 30 minutes.

    Ramanathan Krishnan, twice semi-finalists in 1960 (lost to Neil Fraser 6-3, 6-2, 6-2) and 1961 (lost to Rod Laver 6-2, 8-6, 6-2). In 1954 he won the junior Wimbledon title - to become the first Indian to do so

    Is there any particular time period in which the quiz has to be completed .Also while the quiz event is going on, as a notification to all other forum members ,will there be any red alert notice in the forum index.
    Don't you guys feel that there should be some sort for prize for the one answers the most questions.prize could be like for example: like a trophy will be displayed in player info column to the left of each post.
