The final of the inter-corporate quiz organized by CRY (Child Relief and You), held in the Capital on October 28, saw Indian Express-Delhi emerging as winners.

The CRY Maruti Suzuki FACT Quiz 2005, now in its 7th year, is reckoned as one of India’s toughest trivia quizzes which not only tests one’s intelligence quotient but also builds the emotional quotient of a person.

Admiral Johnson, Advisor, CRY, said, “Each one of us must recognize every child as a complete individual and give him or her equal opportunity and dignity. CRY endeavors to bring together individuals, corporates, average citizens, grassroot partners and policy makers amongst others who believe in child rights, to create a movement for India’s children for them to be assured their rights, for every child to experience a childhood.”

Shashi Kapoor, DGM-Marketing (ACE), Maruti Udyog, said, “An association with CRY, through title sponsorship of FACT, is something that all of us at Maruti are proud to be associated with. Not only as responsible corporate citizens but also in our personal capacity, we believe that whatever we do will help children find a better tomorrow.”
