The daily online quiz as part of the ongoing Grand Kerala Shopping Festival (GKSF) has become a huge hit with netizens of diverse backgrounds, if the list of winners so far is any indication.
Housewives to students and professionals in urban centres to those living in rural areas – people from across the social spectrum have not only been active participants but also winners of the quiz, which is hosted by actor Ann Alexia Anra.
Nidhun C. Nair is a soldier in the Indian Army. On leave, Nidhun is an active participant in the GKSF online quiz.
“I am so excited to have won a prize. I will keep on answering questions every day,” he says.
Some participants are guided into the competition by others as in the case of Sudheesh, a B.A. student of NSS College, Changanassery. In fact, it was his teacher who asked him to take part.
“I knew there would be a lot of participants, and I did not expect to win a prize. But I did,” says Sudheesh.
“We have seen a tremendous response to the quiz,” GKSF Director U.V. Jose says.
The quiz was introduced as a novel element during the latest edition of the GKSF.
Ann, who shot to fame as a child actor in Kamal Hassan’s blockbuster ‘Avvai Shanmugi,’ poses one question every day in this video quiz.
The questions are based on the culture, history, places, and unique attributes of Kerala. Ann asks the questions in English, with Malayalam subtitles provided in the video.
Web users can participate in the quiz by joining the GKSF Facebook page www.facebook.com/GKSFIndia or logging on to the official website www.shoppingfestival.in
The quiz will continue till January 30.
