Welcome, all special people !

This is our 1-1-1 newsletter, where we share 1 fact, 1 puzzle and 1 interesting picture + (bonus ) sneak peek into our world!


Have you checked our 100 questions, Quiz e-book yet? Made with a lot of love and interesting GK questions :)

Did you know?

Asia's largest mango orchard is not anywhere else but in India!

Right in the place that had a lot of celebrities sprawling recently - Jamnagar!

Story time:

In 1990s, Ambanis received several warnings from the Pollution Control Board to do something about the huge pollution caused by their oil refineries.

That's how this mango orchard was set up by planting 1 lakh mango plants in nearby wasteland.

They have over 200 species of mango trees in an area of 600 acre!

This fact made for an interesting quiz question in this episode of Grills Show

(BONUS ) Sneak Peek

Sneak Peek:

We had no clue our offline Quizwiz Show would be so much fun! 歹

Honestly, we were sceptical to come out from the comfort of our studios. But DAMN what a wonderful audience - nerdy + enthusiastic. What a vibe this room had 歹

2 hours of fun + quizzes and lovely interactions. AHHHH!

We really really really want to bring this joy of quizzing to your place.

Tell us which city you are from. Tell us if you want us to do this Show at your school, college, office, etc. - fill this form and we will reach out to you :)


UPDATE:

This is the 25th edition of our weekly newsletter.

We sent the first newsletter on 8 Nov, 2023, back when we were at about 150k subs on YT. Since then we have grown 2x more on YouTube.

Unfortunately, this newsletter has not grown at the same pace.

We realised that email newsletters are a fairly new concept in India. You all reading this are not any aam people 歹

We write every single edition by ourselves. But we intend to focus on more things at APH.

Hence, this weekly newsletter will now be a fortnightly newsletter (not an ode to Swift's new song haha).

We will send the 1-1-1 newsletter to you every alternate Wednesday, at 9:16 AM. Any updates in between shall be communicated to you via the email :)

Next edition comes out on 8th May.

Hope you will understand 歹
