The Cycle Heritage Quiz is a great initiative to bring the young children face to face with India’s rich tradition and cultural heritage. This quiz began in 2011 and this has become an annual event now. The quiz is also conducted in other cities like Chennai, Hyderabad, Pune, Bangalore and other cities.
Students from classes eight to class ten from around three hundred and seventy teams representing sixty five schools in the city participated in the preliminary round of the competition. Amongst them six teams consisting of Ramkrishna Mission Vidyalaya, Narendrapur, St. Thomas Boys, Scottish Church Collegiate School, Jadavpur Vidyapeeth, Lakshmipat Singhania Academy and Modern High School participated in the competition.
Speaking with Sholoana Bangaliana, Abir Chatterjee said “The Cycle Heritage Quiz is a praiseworthy initiative undertaken by Cycle Pure Agarbatties. I have been listening to the questions and many of the answers were not known to me too. However I was amazed at the way the young students performed and responded to the questions smartly”.
Bidipta Chakraborty who was also present at the occasion said “I cannot always make it to the quiz competitions in which my daughter participates. She is in class nine. However today I could understand the feeling that she usually has when she participates in a quiz”.
