About the Author

Neil O’Brien was born on 10 May 1934. He completed his Master of Arts in English Literature from Calcutta University and went on to teach English at St Xavier’s College. In 1964, he joined Oxford University Press, India, where he worked for thirty-eight years and went on to become the Managing Director. He was the Chairman of the Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations (ISC/ICSE) from 1993 to 2010 and a three-time nominated Member of Legislative Assembly in West Bengal and a Member of Parliament. He was a leader of the Anglo-Indian community, the president-in-chief of the All-India Anglo-Indian Association and headed the Frank Anthony group of schools. Popularly known as the Father of Quizzing in India, he pioneered open quizzes when he conducted the first one in 1967, in Calcutta. Neil O’Brien passed away in Calcutta on 24 June 2016. He is survived by his wife Joyce O’Brien and three sons, Derek, Andy and Barry.
