Daily Question – 6

Today’s question comes to you from Gopal Kidao, one of the founding members of the QFI, Chennai.

To celebrate which annual occasion was this map published?

The event was Bloomsday, observed annually on 16th June in Dublin and elsewhere to celebrate the life of James Joyce and relive the events in his novel ‘Ulysses’, all of which took place on the same day in Dublin in 1904. The name derives from Leopold Bloom, the protagonist of Ulysses.

Points only to those who mentioned Bloomsday – Ganesh, BoFi, nitish, Shubhendu Saha, CR, Prasanna, Rohan, Thejaswi Udupa, Guneet, vijaysarathy, Manish Mani, The Clueless Anon, Ajay Parasuraman, Chris Pearson, Quizling, Srinivasan Rajagopal, anon-on-narkotix, zizzyphus and Ashwin. The rest of you are sentenced to 200 hours of reading James Joyce.
