Jayendra Bisnik Treats Readers to 'Quiz-A-Day'
BBC's "Mastermind" is Jayendra's all-time favorite quiz show that used to air during the late-'90s and early-2000s. The show was hosted by Jayendra's favorite quizmaster Siddhartha Basu. After "Mastermind" was taken off air, Jayendra felt the need to be connected to Basu's quizzes; and that was when he started buying Basu's quiz books and later other quizmaster's books. This was the time when Jayendra realized that he could start conducting quizzes himself. Jayendra shares, "From 2005, I conducted numerous quizzes on the corporate and community circuit. In 2014, I realized that I needed to share some of my best questions (those that got the biggest applause from my audience!) with the rest of the world. Publishing 'Quiz-A-Day' was a logical extension to that thought."
"Quiz-A-Day" contains questions on trivia. The topics vary from politics to sports, from science to history, from music to movies, all arranged in 52 chapters - one for each week of the year. Moreover, the photographic questions littered across the book provide a completely new flavor to the normal readers and seasoned quizzers alike.
Jayendra has always been interested in trivia and gathering general knowledge from his childhood. Through the book, he believes that readers will not only find a stress reliever but also a great way to gain more knowledge about the world, while having fun at the same time.
"'Quiz-A-Day' is a global book in today's connected world," Jayendra shares. "Readers will take away: little-known facts about famous personalities, places, events, and artwork; some mind-boggling facts about today's world that are not part of common knowledge; and, the fact that quizzing is also a lot of fun!"
