Hi Rajeev,

I've been seeing your series for a long time now...And very well know that you share answers with only those who attempt quizzes.
Still wanted to request to you once again - may you please consider posting the answers on the site atleast ? I've 2 reasons to ask for this - many a times I catch up with old quizzes and thus cant really participate everytime. 2nd one - I'm out of India for more than last 1 year and being in Africa dont really have much clues about Indian media and therefore I really dont know answers to attempt the quiz. - I hope you can consider my request !
