It was 1972, and Hyderabad was experiencing one of the many Telangana statehood agitations. Schools had shut down indefinitely, and time hung heavy on kids' hands....
Into this void marched a group of parents from the Marredpally suburb, who came together to start two clubs to give their children an engagement that would approximate attending school. One was YOCs, the other was K-Circle. YOCs is the Young Orators Club, but what is the "K" in K-Circle? "Knowledge" is a reasonable guess, but nobody’s sure and the official answer is lost in the mists of time. It's the only question that's still unanswered 😏.
K-Circle is India's oldest quiz club, and is based in the twin cities of Hyderabad and Secunderabad. Every weekend, it facilitates lively, engaging and informally informative quiz sessions that everybody is welcome to attend.
A motley group, K-Circle is open to members of all ages. A truly informal club, we don’t even have a form for new entrants to fill. No frills, no badges, no pins/medals, no passwords. . . if you come in late, you just may have to perch on the window sill, but that's about it!
We, at the club are equally adept at conducting and winning quizzes. K-Circle quizzes have the well-deserved reputation of being thoroughly researched, highly interesting and innovative (far removed from the mugging-from-GK books sort of quiz that is all too common hereabouts).
KC is the melting-pot of a huge array of interests - Rock could mean an inspired piece by Led Zeppelin to one and a lump of sandstone to another . . . One guy knows Icarus better than he knows his neighbour; to the others he’s just another book on their agenda...
WWW stands for Whoa! Wild West! just as much as World Wide Web . . . Echo has the physics don explaining waves while the etymology buff thinks of the cursed maiden.
For all their differences, we’re ever ready to applaud anything quiz worthy.
