Sachin & Raghav, our founders, were bitten by the curiosity bug at a very early age. Sachin, who had a surprise win at a school quiz at the age of 10, found that he liked the experience so much that he went on to become a competitive quizzer with national & international quiz titles under his belt. Raghav’s dinner time conversations with his father on everything from current affairs to technology, sowed the seeds of his lifelong quest to learn. For him too, this curiosity led naturally to the world of quizzing.
The paths of the two quizzers crossed while at law school in Pune. There, while learning legal-ese, they found that they could help children develop their own sense of curiosity and come to love quizzing as much as they do. While having immense fun interacting with them, Sachin & Raghav also realized that through quizzing, they were enabling children to learn how to think- a skill that would hold good through school and life.
From this thought came Walnut Knowledge Solutions, the parent company of QShala. At Walnut, Sachin, Raghav & their team have set over 300 quizzes for kids, corporates and others (they hold a record for conducting quizzes on all 7 continents – including Antarctica!) while also running the QShala program. Despite these achievements, Sachin & Raghav maintain that their greatest satisfaction as quizzers and founders, comes from children thinking out of the box and stumping them with novel ideas.
