In a previous life, I liked to take pictures (grad school), act like a bibliophile (throughout), and participate in competitive trivia and contract bridge (college). These days, I only occasionally get to do the former two, and almost never get to do the latter two.

I am a trivia junkie per se, and along with Subhankar Nag helped re-start the Jadavpur University Quiz Club Enquiry, and co-founded the Qriosity quiz festival - which has grown to become one of India's biggest college quiz festivals. I was also an attendant of the wonderful Carnegie Mellon quiz club. Many moons ago, I used to represent the quiz team "JU Public" in the Kolkata college and open quiz circuits. This article by Tintin-da summarizes the spirit of trivia here. Backward links this.
