ABOUT US

Last updated on 31st January 2021.

At last it is live even today.

The Know Gandhi Quiz program, which we had planned to celebrate the 150th birth anniversary of Gandhiji, started on 30th January 2019, which, as part of the earlier plan, would continue till 02nd October 2019.
Thanks to Shri. Somayya Kakka for providing us a platform and unconditional support. It would have remained as an unsuccessful paper project without his whole-hearted support.
In the past, for almost one year, we were knocking at the doors of many institutions and organizations to get a nod to launch this project. Though they all claim as standing to uplift and spread Gandhian thoughts and ideas, never bothered to support us to launch this project.
Our search then turned towards less known Gandhian Organizations. In fact Bombay Sarvodaya Mandal was not at all on top in our list. But when we have narrated our plan to Somayya Kaaka, he then suggested some changes and offered full support. At that moment we realized that our dream was going to happen. Day and night we worked hard and the final result was http://quiz.mkgamndhi.org

  • We didn't create a new domain but used only a sub domain.
  • No paid campaigns.
  • Not a single paisa was spent for its development, for launching and for advertisement.
  • We prepared the posters. Sent emails and posters to various schools across the country.
  • Placed free ads in magazines like Bhavan's Journal and Dimdima Children's Magazine etc.
  • Informed all major newspapers about this Know Gandhi Quiz.
  • Succeeded in placing banner advertisement on various websites.
  • Nearly 10,000 emails had been sent to various schools in India and had sent a lot of SMS to individuals.
  • Added the announcement as auto reply to many email ids which we handled.

All this we did and still doing during our lunchbreaks and free time.

  • Everyday till 12.00 in the night and from 4.30 in the morning we utilized all our free time for its development and promotion.
  • Even while travelling we used to send SMS and emails to promote this.

Thanks to those principals, who had realized the benefit their students would get by participating in this quiz, had placed the posters on their school noticeboards and also announced it in their school assemblies. Thus we got young students from Delhi, Kerala, Karnataka, Maharashtra etc.
It is also decided that none of the team members would take any remuneration for the work we do for this project. The website was up. But our task didn't end there.

  • We prepared more than 1000 objective type questions to run this.
  • Daily monitoring was another task.
  • Continued the promotion without spending any money was another.
    "Shall we try for some sponsors for this?" one day we asked Somayyaji.
    "No" was his stern reply.
    "Then the sponsor might ask us to display their banner advertisement on our page. We do not want to put anything unrelated to Gandhiji on our pages. Money making is not our idea." Explained Somayaji.
    "Can we try to get someone to buy Gandhian books and donate the same to us to use as prizes?" we asked.
    "That is a different story. You can try for that. But remember we do not accept any money directly from anyone. They can pay for books or other materials related to Gandhiji from our store and then make those items available as prizes." Somayyaji at last consented when we persuaded a lot.
    We are common people getting a normal salary to lead a normal middle class life. So we do not have any extra money to spend. But time, talent and dedication, we have enough to spare. That is what we are offering to Somayyaji who has helped us in making this project live by offering unconditional support.
    As we have said earlier, any promotion by spreading the news or making any Gandhi related books or articles available as gifts to give as prizes are welcome.
    As per the earlier plan, we stopped the quiz on 02 October 2020. But on popular demands, we converted this one into a daily quiz: Know Gandhi Daily Quiz and continued ever after.
    More than 10,000 have already registered for the quiz as on today. It may rise further. Anyone can register and participate in the quiz.
    We are trying our best to spread the news and get more people join this quiz. Our aim is to spread the Gandhian ideas and philosophy among younger generation. Thus prepare them to lead a peaceful life.
    We want all to have The Story of My Experiments with Truth in every house.

    • Earlier, there were One-Day Quizzes and Monthly Quizzes.
    • Now only One-Day Quizzes.
    • Ten objective type questions to answer.
    • Answer all correctly and get a Digital Certificate.
    • No cash, No highly priced item as prizes.
    • Only Gandhi related books and articles.
    • Started with ten copies of the autobiography for the first two months.
    • Which increased to 200+ as on today.
    • Spread the news, talk about it to others and that is what we are requesting everyone.

    Thanks a lot well in advance for your support.
    Regards
