______ Nagar is an annual exposition of Hindu
culture (broadly) held in the island nation of
Trinidad and Tobago. The exposition is staged
at the _____ Nagar Site, located in the borough
of Chaguanas. This event was started in the
Mid Centre Mall car park in late 1986. It was
given a permanent site on the John Peters
Road Extension off the Uriah Butler Highway a
couple of years after.
FITB.
Construction started in the mid 1930s.
The artworks on the walls were the
brainchild of Nandalal Bose, which ranged
from Mohenjodaro to Egyptian
civilization. Rathindranath Tagore asked
Surendranath Kar to stall the project, as
the university was going through acute
financial crisis.
However, when Rabindranath visited the
place, he encouraged Nandalal to finish
off the work.
What am I talking about?

Pictured on the next slide is Safa Baig, a

Beeton's Christmas
Annual was a
paperback magazine printed
in England yearly between
1860 and 1898, founded
by Samuel Orchart Beeton.
The pic alongside is the
November 1887 issue of the
same, which introduced
someone, and thus this
particular edition has
become a collector’s item.
 Often described as the ‘Brick City’ by
European scholars and also by the Ahoms,
Dimapur was the ancient capital of
the Dimasa, whose dominance extended
across North-Eastern India, particularly the
Brahmaputra Valley.
If local folklore is to be believed, Dimapur
gets its name from which character of Indian
mythology?
Illyria was an ancient region of the Western
Balkans whose coast covered (from north to
south) the coasts of modern-
day Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and
Herzegovina, Montenegro and Albania.
This place provides the setting for a literary
work written to commemorate a holiday which
marks the end of a certain annual festival – a
fact made abundantly clear by the name of the
literary work itself. Which?
Though Robertson-er Ruby was the last
Feluda story written by Satyajit Ray
(excluding the unfinished ones), which
was the last story to be published, 4 years
after his death?
A famous rival of hers introduced her to Aspen,
a city where she met one of her former
husbands, Andy Mill.
Speaking of ex-husbands, her three marriages
till date have been to a Brit (John Lloyd), an
American (Andy Mill) and an Australian (Greg
Norman).
She, thus, only needs to marry a Frenchman to
complete a ‘grand slam’. 
Which famous sportsperson?
The father of this Burma born lady died
during the 2nd World War. The family then
trekked to India in 1943 in order to escape
from the Japanese occupation of Burma. Before
reaching Mumbai, they stopped at Calcutta,
after spending a couple of months in a
hospital.
Hence, it is no wonder, that her first break
was “Howrah Bridge”.
Such was her effect on the movies of that
time, that even her biography reflects her
explosive nature.
Her debut novel, apart from fetching her a
much-coveted award, also cemented her
reputation in the minds of the intelligentsia.
20 years after telling the world the story of
Rahel and Estha, she will release her 2nd novel
The Ministry of Utmost Happiness in 2017.
Who?
• This particular version of our national song is
from which movie? (removed)
Though caste issues are often raised by the
custodians of the festival, what they often
forget is that the deity in question was a
reincarnation who was first worshipped by the
Savara (cattle-breeding) king Viswavasu.
According to cultural columnist Kedar Mishra,
the inspiration for this annual festival came
from a Buddhist ritual, where Buddhist symbols
were used to popularize the philosophy of
Ahimsa.
Id the singer… (removed)
Id the place, where this portion of the song is
shot? (1pt)

add to the list? (1pt) (removed)
What was started in 1975 by the
Government of India to support high
quality cinema that represented the best of
India’s diverse artistic vision?
It was, by all standards, a great success,
producing cinema that was socially
relevant, and aesthetically exceptional in
ways that the commercial industry was not
able to deliver.
The current name, by which we all know it,
is all I want…
European monarchs, who sometimes had
lengthy titles due to dynastic claims to
territories accumulated over the centuries
(and also as a matter of prestige), often
shortened their full titles by concluding it
with a Latin expression, which literally
means “and the rest” in Latin.
Which particular expression, often used in
our daily conversations?
July 2011…. 2nd npower test…
At the stroke of tea, X's run-out on 137, after
having left the crease before the ball was
dead, was on the verge of becoming a major
point of dispute between the two sides. During
the break, the captain and the coach went to
the Indian dressing room to ask MS Dhoni if
the run-out decision could be overturned. The
Indians agreed to withdraw the appeal.
Even if the name does not ring anything in
your ears, the surname, certainly, will….
Located beside a river, the name of this tourist
attraction was preceded by the company which
owned it from time to time: British Airways,
Merlin Entertainments, EDF Energy etc. Since
mid Jan 2015, it is being owned by an American
biz entity, which can be figured out by the pic.
The script has 30 letters, the forms of
which are intended to evoke natural
shapes. Linguist Norman Zide said, "The
shapes of the letters are not arbitrary, but
reflect the names for the letters, which
are words, usually the names of objects
or actions representing conventionalized
form in the pictorial shape of the
characters.“
The image of the script and the bust of
the person who created it in 1925, are on
the next slide.
ID the guy on the right, seen here with Michael
Keaton.
Which national park was established as the
Sawai Madhopur Game Sanctuary in 1955 by the
Government of India and was declared one of
the Project Tiger reserves in 1973?
The relinquishing of a 16 year-old
‘practice’, which had become practically
synonymous with the concerned person,
was immediately succeeded by the launch
of a political party named People’s
Resurgence Justice Alliance, based out of
the native capital city.
Coincidentally, both the capital city and
the name of the person begins with the
same letter.
ID the person.
Tribute to which movie? (removed)

On the next slides are some
artworks, which surfaced on
social media, in the aftermath of

(and also as a matter of prestige), often
shortened their full titles by concluding it
with a Latin expression, which literally
means “and the rest” in Latin.
Which particular expression, often used in
our daily conversations?
A prime example of this usage would be from Tsar Nicholas II of Russia, who
traditionally began his proclamations with his shortened (but still long) title: "We,
Nicholas II, By the Grace of God, Emperor and Autocrat of All the Russias, King
of Poland, Grand Duke of Finland, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera.“
Et al is another expression along similar lines, meaning ‘and others’. However, that is
used mostly in academic circles nowadays and prolly doesn’t share this exact origin
story.
