Transcript of "Spindia session - Illuminati"

  1. 1. Dry 1 
  2. 2.   The first team sport was added in the 1900 Olympics. A fitting sport, as it is one of the few sports outside of the Olympics that was actually played on an international level (Every U.S. sport kept strictly within domestic borders). In the first game, X, Y, and Belgium won gold, silver, and bronze respectively. Sport?
  3. 3.
  4. 4. FOOTBALL   X: ENGLAND  Y: FRANCE
  5. 5.   X started his Olympic journey in Sydney where he won silver in the Team Sprint. In Athens he won gold in the 1km time trial and in Beijing he won three golds in the Sprint, Team Sprint and Keirin. In London with the home crowd cheering him on, he achieved a gold in the Team Sprint and a gold in the Keirin.  He was recently knighted for his services to his sport and the Y for the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games has been named in his honor.
  6. 6.
  7. 7. Sir Chris Hoy 
  8. 8.   This is Waldi the dachshund. Waldi, depicted in cartoon form, was a blue wiener-dog that appeared to be wearing a rainbow-colored sweater. In 1972, he was introduced to the sporting world in a unique way. How so?
  9. 9.
  10. 10. First Olympic Mascot   1972 Munich Games.
  11. 11.   People from South India „celebrate‟ the Theemithi festival by doing something in honour of the Hindu goddess Draupadi– so rather than doing this quickly, the devotees have to do it very slowly, as though it‟s a walk in the park. The ritual begins when the head priest does the same with a pot on his head, filled with sacred water. He is then followed by other men, who seek to prove their piety by doing the same. What is this ritual?
  12. 12.
  13. 13. Walking on burning charcoal 
  14. 14.   The Indian game of X and the closely-related game Pachchisi are the original cross-and-circle games, of which the best known example in the West is the much-simplified Y. Players aim to race their pieces around the board, with moves determined by a throw of cowry shells. An opponent‟s pieces can be captured by landing on the same square, and two of a player‟s pieces on the same square can merge into a “super-piece”. X and Y?
  15. 15.
  16. 16. Chaupat; Ludo 
  17. 17.   This three time European footballer of the year was recently voted the 2nd best player of the century, only behind Pele. In his only World Cup appearance he led his country to victories over Argentina and champions Brazil, before they eventually lost in the final to West Germany. After helping his country qualify for the 1978 World Cup, he surprised everyone by announcing his retirement from international football. They again made the final in ‟78, and many believe that had X been in the side, they would have beaten winners Argentina. Who is this X who had an extremely illustrious club career who won 10 league titles and 3 European cups?
  18. 18.
  19. 19. Johan Cruyff 
  20. 20.   Jallikattu is done without the help of any rope or weapons contrary to its Spanish counterpart. Thankfully, the X‟s life is also spared afterwards, bovines being famously sacred in India. Celebrated during Pongal, this is one of the most dangerous sports played in India. Youth, ardent for some desperate glory, usually strive either to tame the X or at least to hang on to it for a reward – usually money.
  21. 21.
  22. 22.
  23. 23.   The Derby della Capitale is the local football derby in Z, between the two major teams of the city, X and Y. It is considered to be the fiercest derby in the country ahead of the other major local derbies, Derby della Madonnina and Derby della Mole (Turin derby), and one of the greatest and hotly contested capital derbies in Europe. The derby has been historically marked by massive crowds, excitement, violence and – recently – racist banners in the crowd.  Which two teams?

  28. 28.   An opening batsman and slow left arm orthodox bowler, he played in 44 Tests for India, and made 2109 runs at an average of 31.47 including five Test centuries with a top score of 231. He also took 162 wickets at the average of 32.32, including eight fivewicket hauls. He is one of the three cricketers to have batted in every position, from the first to the last, during his Test career. His son played cricket for India and his grandson is a professional tennis player. Who?
  29. 29.   X is an Indian cricketer and cricket administrator also known by the nickname 'Colonel'. He was known as one of the foremost exponents of the drive. Along with Sunil Gavaskar and Gundappa Viswanath, he was a key player in the Indian batting line up in the late 70s and early 80s. He went on to play till 1989 and represented Bombay in the Ranji Trophy. For Test matches played in India, he has one of the highest batting averages. He was the Chairman of Selection Committee of the BCCI from 2006-08. Who?

  31. 31. X?   Lawrie Colliver: Too lazy to take the stairs, eh,, X?  X: I‟m fond of taking the aerial route, Lawrie! Which floor are you heading to?  Colliver: The fourth.  X (presses the 4 button): Alright then, I start off with a boundary! (presses „4‟ again)Consecutive boundaries! (presses „4‟ again) We‟re dealing in boundaries at the moment (presses the „6‟ now) Now I go big! It‟s in the air, going, going, gone! (presses „6‟ again) And again! This one is in the stands! (presses 4 and 6 indiscriminately and in rapid succession, as a shell-shocked Lawrie watches in utter disbelief) This bowler is being taken to the cleaners!  (Suddenly, sparks fly from the button panel, and a loud grating noise is heard overhead, forcing Lawrie and the others to cover their ears and duck reflexively)  X (completely unperturbed): The atmosphere in the elevator is electric, and the noise is deafening. We should be in for a cracker, Lawrie!
  32. 32. Simply Id the guy on the left. 
  33. 33. X?   Since the favourite sport for the people of Y was the game of football, X was initially attracted to the game but rose to fame in another sport. However, academics came in-between his love for sports and his mother was not very supportive of him taking up any sport as a career. By then, his elder brother was already an established cricketer for the Bengal cricket team. He supported X's dream to be a cricketer and asked their father to get X enrolled in a camp when he was 15. Despite being right-handed, X learnt to bat left-handed only so he could use his brother's sporting equipment. After he showed some promise as a batsman, he was enrolled in a cricket academy and the rest was history.

  43. 43.   The first historically documented formula for X appears in Charaka Samhita, the ancient Ayurvedic treatise. Various Indian texts like the Mahabharata and the Puranas relate that the Vaid named Ashwini Kumar, who was a medical adviser to the Devas during Vedic times first prepared this formulation for a Rishi at his Ashram on Dhosi Hill near Narnaul, hence the name X.  The real recipe of X is given in Ayurvedic texts like Ashtangahridayam and Charaka Samhita. Nowadays different companies are making X in their own ways by removing some ingredients and adding their own.
  44. 44.
  45. 45.
  46. 46.   X, established in 1864, now has 26 showrooms in 18 cities across 7 states in India. Its main showroom is located at ______ Bazaar in Mumbai built across five floors and said to be the largest showroom of its type in India. In 1987, this business was adversely affected due to an incident which was brought to everyone‟s cognizance once more in 2013. X? Incident?

  52. 52.   X‟s creations include the sketches drawn for the television adaptation of Y which was written by his elder brother Z and directed by Shankar Nag, 1954 Asian Paints mascot Gattu and W ( has a wisp of white hair that is perpetually standing, leaving him with a bewildered look).  W has gained popularity over 5 decades and is the official mascot of the low budget “Air Deccan”. A 10foot statue of W has been erected at Symbiosis Institute in Pune.
  53. 53.
  54. 54.   X: RK Laxman  Y: Malgudi Days  Z: RK Narayan  W: “The Common Man”
  55. 55. What‟s the good word?   X is an Indian term which originally referred to a place of assembly. The meaning then altered to denote a place where skill-based contests were held or sporting events took place and referred to any of various meets at which contests were held to test the skill of the competitors. In English-speaking countries, a X refers to a multi-game equestrian event performed to display the training and talents of horses and their rider.
  56. 56.
  57. 57. Gymkhana 
  58. 58.   It is possible that Halifax natives, many of whom were Irish and played hurling, may have introduced the word to Canada. The first known printed reference was in Montreal, in 1867, just a year after the first indoor game was played there. It is made of vulcanised rubber and is sometimes colloquially referred to as “Biscuit” from which we get the phrase: Put the „Biscuit‟ in the „Basket‟. What is this Biscuit?

  82. 82. X and Y?   All 10 episodes of X are satires done on sociocultural problems of the common man. The show was immensely popular and still gets repeated reruns on various Doordarshan channels. The show was shot completely in Chandigarh with some episodes being shot at Punjab Engineering Collge ( Y was an alumnus of that college ). The cast remained the same in every episode, although they played different characters as each episode essayed a different story.

The carvings on the panels portray various Hindu deities, along with their attendants. The most important and brilliant sculpture depicts the Trimurti. This twenty foot image was carved in relief at the back of the cave, and it presents the three-headed Shiva.  To reach the temple, you have to travel from the Indian mainland to the island, traverse the mountain, and find your way through the caves.

  91. 91.   X means "clarified butter" or "fat" in Persian, while Y means "heat, hot, boiling, or passionate". XY thus means cooked in oil at intense heat. Another interpretation of the name XY is derived from the word X meaning "red color" (the same Indo-European root that is the source of the French “Rouge" and the Spanish “Rojo") and Y meaning passion or heat.  XY was brought to Z by the Mughals. The unrelenting summer heat of the Indian plains took the Mughals frequently to Z, which has a cooler climate because of its altitude.
