In the photograph, Malcolm Panthaki (Civil Engineering, batch of 1984) can be seen near the microphone, and various other students are seated engaged in a discussion. The music quiz was an event that covered a broad spectrum of music. The rules were identical to the main quiz, however one significant difference was that individuals participated in teams of three in the music quiz, as compared to two sets of six, in the main quiz.

Several events took place at the Central Lecture Theatre during 1983 including certain informal events, main quiz, music quiz and so on. The Mardi Gras events took place in areas within the campus at areas such as the Open Air Theatre, Shanti Kunj, Central Lecture Theatre, other halls at Humanities and Sciences Block (such as Physics Lecture Theatre and Chemistry Lecture Theatre) and areas in between.
