The IIT-M Open Quiz Blog

Hello everyone,

The IIT Madras Quiz Club is proud to announce the revival of the IIT-M Open Quiz after a 2 year hiatus. We plan to make this one of the biggest and best open quizzes in the country. For more details please visit http://openquiz.iitm.ac.in/.

Along with the Open Quiz, we are starting a quiz blog which will be seperate from the IIT-M Quiz Blog. From now on expect a barrage of mind twisting questions with at least one question a day being the norm.

Starting today, you can be a part of the IIT-M OQ by participating at iitmoq11.blogspot.com, till the 16th of January when you can come to the Student Activities Centre in IIT-M for the actual quiz. There are loads of prizes and goodies to be won for the blog leaders.

The first question will be up at midnight.

Happy quizzing folks and besto,
The Open Quiz Committee

#225: Frankly speaking


Cracked by all, partly due to a particularly loathsome reverse imaging search engine. Rest assured, greater efforts to circumvent this bugbear will hence be taken. Highlight for the answer ---- Frank Serpico, the legendary whistle-blower who inspired the eponymous Al Pacino starrer

#223 - This Big Mouth works with Blind Patients.....

The gentleman in this picture resigned from his post in 1899.
Though, we may have not seen him, we would have heard the reason he supposedly gave for his resignation, which was dependent on his job before resigning. Who is he? What was his job? And what was the reason he gave, (which is now quoted widely)?
