"My First Quiz" - Aswani Kumar Sharma

“I took part in my first quiz in Class 11, where my school teachers chose a class 8 girl as my quiz partner. The quiz was organized by the NDMA (National Disaster Management Authority) so they helped me out with facts about natural calamities, earthquakes and so on. But when I attended the quiz I got go know that it was a general quiz and I didn't qualify the prelims. But that first quiz was important because that day, I surrendered myself to quizzing whole-heartedly and the passion is still on.”
