3. Add Sushmita Sen and Rakesh Sharma to that list too. They are all products of Kendriya Vidyalayas. (I didn’t know that about Padma.. hi there!)
1. They all hold/held flying licenses. Raffu et tu?
Working my brains on the rest….

2 Anshu { 01.06.09 at 7:33 am }

For 1. I also wanted to say they followed the profession of one of their parents. But Clint Eastwood wasn’t quite right… though there is some internet ‘afwah’ that his dad is Stan Laurel… untrue .. it’s Clint Eastwood Sr

What’s my prize Manishwa?

7 Manish { 01.06.09 at 9:13 am }

It takes hours to devise a quiz – and 15 minutes to crack it?

Your prize? You get to devise the next quiz.

11 Anshu { 01.06.09 at 9:56 am }

OK… while I devise that quiz, crack your skulls with this one. What is common to Mohd Ali Jinnah, Atal Behari Vajpayee, Anwar Sadat and Pt Madan Mohan Malviya..other than the fact that they were all politicians.

( Darn you Manishwa. I have 8 talks to give 10 days later and I’m designing a stoopid quiz thanks to you! Prize, uh? :-(

12 Manish { 01.06.09 at 10:18 am }

Without looking around the wiki – all born on the 25th of December?

13 Manish { 01.06.09 at 10:26 am }

@Anshu: You could add the guy called Raja Hasan to the above list. And he’s as dubious as most in the list.

14 Anshu { 01.06.09 at 10:57 am }

Yuppp… I forgot him!

15 Anshu { 01.06.09 at 1:29 pm }

OK…. I have sent one list of questions to Manishwa. But you can catch an AB trivia quiz at http://www.dranshu.com until he uploads that

16 Padma { 01.06.09 at 6:46 pm }
