Can Your Knowledge Earn INR 5 Crore in Kaun Banega Crorepati (KBC)

Although I rarely watch Kaun Banega Crorepati but after watching the promos of KBC 5 Crore winner Sunmeet Kaur Sawhney on Sony TV, I thought of watching the entire episode of KBC on 12th January 2013.

I was closely following each & every question that was given to her & how confidently & beautifully she was answering them.

Earlier I used to think you need to be lucky in order to earn money in Kaun Banega Crorepati but after watching this episode & confidence of Sunmeet Kaur Sawhney, I had to say it was only her knowledge that earned her 5 Crore in Kaun Banega Crorepati.

Don’t  you trust me?? Just read this inspiring story of a mechanic….

A giant ship engine failed. The owner of the ship called one professional after other but none of them was able to spot the problem to repair the ship engine.

Then they called an old gentleman who was repairing ships since his youth. He was carrying a large toolbox with him & he started to work as soon as he arrived. He inspected the engine thoroughly.

The ship owner was present there, looking at this man, hoping he would know what to do. After checking things carefully, this man opened his toolbox & pulled out a small hammer. He gently tapped something. Instantly, the engine lurched into life. He carefully put his hammer away. The engine was fixed!

After a week, the ship owner received a bill of $10,000 from the man.

“What?!” the owners exclaimed. “He hardly did anything!”

So he wrote the old man a note saying, “Please send us an itemized bill.”

The man sent a bill that read:

  • Tapping with a hammer………….. $ 2.00
  • Knowing where to tap…………….. $ 9,998.00

*Effort is important, but knowing where to make an effort makes all the difference!*


Do you agree with me?

Education is the right of everyone. Spread awareness & tell everyone the importance of education & knowledge.

    I am very happy to see sumeetji winning the kBC contest. Good luck & god bless. But don’t forget ur older days & money should not go in to sumeetji’s or her familys mind. Because u can become rich or beggar within a fraction of minutes. Use it for welfare perpose & a small part of it for self luxury.

    We all know KBC is Good Business.
    But have you ever pondered…
    How Good….????

    Any guesses? Let’s see…

    Airtel is charging Rs.6/- per SMS sent for this contest.

    Assuming there are only 100 entries from say 10 cities of some 20 districts
    and 20 states…

    6(Rs/SMS) x 100(entries) x 10(cities) x 20(districts) x 20(states) = 6
    x 100 x 10 x 20 x 20 = Rs.24,00,000

    24 lakhs in 20 minutes.
    (People trying for the 2 lakhs cash prize)

    Imagine what if 1000 entries try out from 100 cities?

    The figure simply grows by 2 more zeroes and yields a whopping 24 Crores!!!!

    And it does not stop there…

    In practice it could be another multiple of 100 or a multiple of 1000 on an

    In that case it is 24 x 100crores earnings in just 20 minutes on every

    And the prize money: A mere 5 crore..
    (and from whose pocket?)

    Smart Business By Siddharth Basu!

    And the best part of this calculation is just the SMS earning!!

    What about the Ad money?

    A rough annual profit calculation goes like this:

    2400 x 5 x 4) (episode/month) = 60000 crores.

    Let even 50% get dissolved in taxes and other payments, still you will be
    left with (which includes even the meagre 480 crores of prize money i.e.if
    every episode bags 2 crore prize)!

    30000-crores profit !!! (only from SMS)

    Simple Question:
    and your options are—

    A) SONY TV
    Computerji iska jawab bataiye….

    Ans: All FOUR..!!!!
    Now you know why AB gets all emotional when the episodes end………..

    Hi Priya,

    Thanks for such wonderful info about how important is Education ad Knowledge to each one of us and I am sure everybody dreams of becoming a crorepati and KBC is a great platform to share the knowledge that I have.Even I have been sending SMS’s regularly as my optimistic Mummy who is 62 years old always feels that she will get call one day from KBC.Main point is to first get selected to participate in KBC and be first to answer correctly in fastest finger to be eligible to get that hot seat in front of living legend BigB.I just pray that one day my Mummy’s wish is heard by God to appear in KBC.

    Knowledge can only save us in this world. Each new day has a new challenge. We have to find new tactics, methods and modes of operation that are right for today’s situation; otherwise we will be left behind. One must be always ready to acquire the knowledge. There is no shortcut to get success in each and every aspect of life and you can’t achieve it without knowledge.
