What's your EQ score ?? Find it out NOW.

First of all, on the eve of Republic Day, instead of the mundane Quiz on Indian freedom struggle or politics, let us focus on something more relevant today. The Environment and its continued destruction by us...

Before that a small update for the readers. IIML hosted its Management fest - MANFEST, from 22nd to 24th Jan. The special highlights being the Auto conclave attended by Auto industry stalwarts and the Gaming conclave. The last day had performance by Kailash Kher who mesmerized the crowd who were left stupefied by his performance. The weather was unexpectedly cold but the whole colIege withstood the cold wave and ensured that all the activities went on well. There is something interesting which i wanted to share with you all.


I and few of my friends @ IIML (Kiran shah, Uday Sankar, Soumya, Madhavi) had organized a environment awareness campaign). We put on a stall and posters/charts on how to save environment and reduce the global warming which is increasing at a horrendous rate... We had a caption writing contest and a general quiz on environment. I would like to thank my other friends who had been involved and showed active interest in arranging this activity, namely Arava Nirmal(helping out in the Operations), Ashutosh Sardesai(for setting Quiz questions).




This is the banner which we had made for our stall.


Now, coming back to the main purpose of this article, iam sharing the environment quiz with you. I will be publishing the answers along with the photo of the people who got the maximum correct answers.
