of Royalty and Railroad employees…

Trivia time…points from the prev quiz will accrue…

1. This is quite literally a once-in-a-lifetime-event. Its name translates to “Collective Visit” and involves the congregation of Indian Royal families at a temple. After 41 years, it last occured the past weekend(!!) and it had 23 royal families in attendance (I did not even know so many existed anymore). Name event….half the points for naming the city

2. This is about a person with whom I have a love / hate relationship. Mostly hate. Connect, “Atmiyo Swajan” (Bengali film – 1999), Desh (2002) and Rediff.com. He is also related to Omkara in an unimportant way. Who?

3. Etymology…now, there are a lot of theories on this one….but this one seems to be more credible than the others….This 19th Century railroad superintendent introduced what was then an innovative system of merits and demerits for railroad employees of New York state. Accounts of his system were published in railroad journals, and american railroad employees soon began referring colloquially to “………”, and at some point, the term entered the general vocabulary. Fill the blanks!

my hugs and undying love for early birds!
