'There are very bright locals and we want to provide them with a platform to develop their hidden talent.

'The Arabic questions will relate to Arabic heritage and culture,' he added.

'This year's quiz competition will commence in October and we are anticipating the participation of more than 60 schools from around the country.

'In addition, we are working with the Ministry of Education and the Higher Colleges of Technology (HCT) to develop an Arabic version of the quiz which will target Arab school children and university students,' said Baker.

Brain Hunt is being conducted in the UAE since 2004, showcasing the knowledge of students from various Indian schools around the country.

Last year, 60 schools competed in the televised quiz show. Children answered various questions relating to Indian history, world history science and geography.

On Thursday, Brain Hunt Quiz Series Volume 1, a book containing all the questions and answers of the Brain Hunt competition, was released in the capital.
