    Wishing you all on India's Independence Day.

    This thread is being opened to have a quiz on Indian Independence movement. The format will be similar to the one we are all used to in the military equipment quiz. But the change here is going to be that its not going to be just recognitions of pictures of say freedom fighters but also questions related to Indian independence movement. For those not aware of how the quiz goes, i am mentioning the rules below.

    This quiz will remain open till the 18th of August. The winner (person answering the maximum number of questions) will automatically qualify for the nomination of the next Member of the Month.


    The quiz goes like this -
    Question is posted.
    Guess the answer.
    Question asker will confirm whether your response was right or wrong
    If it is right, you get to ask your own question
    If it is wrong, go back to guessing

    Sometimes, it may so happen that question is very difficult and people may struggle. It is the prerogative of the question asker to give ample hints and tips along the way to facilitate answer.

    Will start with an easy one. Who was the first to call Mahatma Gandhi, the Father of the Nation?

    Shy, thats how the rule is. Its DDs turn. He will post the question when he has found a good one to ask. I asked a simple one to kick things off. We dont want all to be as easy as who killed Mahatma Gandhi.

    PS. I made the rule and ahem, im a mod :2guns::2guns: :blum3::blum3:
