Quizmaster Ajay poonia will be hosting the quiz. Inviting participation from women from corporates, public sector, academia and students. Registration and other details in the poster below. And here’s a review of a thrilling edition of Pragati 2 years ago.
Some questions from previous editions of the quiz. Try to answer these in comments-
- In 1993, she was offered a role in a Jurassic Park but she refused as the role was small and of less consequence, not befitting to her stature then. Who is this Indian actress?
- The grandfather wanted to name her Siddhima, but the mother had other ideas. While she was pregnant with the daughter, she was reading a novel by Leo Tolstoy and thus named her after the titular heroine of the novel. Who am I talking about?
- The British called her a ‘dangerous anarchist’ and the ‘notorious Parsee lady’ with some revolutionary ideas in her head. Who is she?
