  1. Hi,
    Have been following your blog regularly for close to 6 months now. Wish to take this opportunity to appreciate the efforts you have taken to come out with the Weekly Business Quiz week after week. The questions surely helped me to prepare for the Tata Crucible Quiz which we managed to win this year.
    Still remember the year 1999/2000 when the TCS team you were in was in the BEQ Nationals and then in 2004 when you had partnered Sreekanth in the Crucible Finals.
