The Two Gentlemen of Bangalore

A pop quiz for readers of Indian origin on a gentleman from Bangalore, Mr. Vasanth :

  1. What is Vasanth's age?
  2. What is Vasanth's profession?
  3. What is the most appropriate prefix for addressing Vasanth?
  4. What is the name of the college where Vasanth studied?
  5. What is the name of Vasanth's wife?
  6. What is the name of Vasanth's mother?
  7. How many children does Vasanth have?
  8. Does Vasanth have a moustache?
  9. Where was Vasanth on July 31, 2007?
  10. Is Vasant alive or dead?

If you scored more than 50% on the quiz, will you write a short bio-sketch on Vasanth, please?

If you are unable to answer more than half of the questions correctly, I'd like you to answer a similar quiz on this other gentleman from Bangalore, Mr. Haneef. I am pretty sure you know who Haneef is. In fact, I am pretty sure you know enough about Haneef to construct a quiz on him on your own, so I will not waste my time on it!

  1. Here is all I know.
    Lt Col V Vasanth, Indian Army ( No I do not know which regiment ).
    Died in Kashmir.
    Was given a 4 column centimeter, in the 6th or 7th page, in The Hindu I think.
    Yes Our country has lost a sense of propotion, and the idea of what makes one a hero.

  2. Could we have a choice ins tead and write about the contents of Trishala's heart rending mail to her father Sanjay Dutt?
    I guarantee I can get full marks!
