I got it all! but your age limit would nt let me participate and Ashu did nt quite get the hang of it. Theres always next year, huh? Meera - please give a hint about next years puzzle! i ll train ashu like a tiger mom! :)

btw, i tried to make my own simpler puzzles for Ashu but could nt think of even one!! hats off to you woman!

Btw, is Samyukta Usha's daughter? If, yes WOO HOO! Congrats Samyu!

Meera Sriram said...

Thank you all!
Utbt & R : Yes, yes, I definitely need such mental work outs to keep it alive and active!
Thanks P and Lavs.
Boo: Congratulations!
You are sweet and funny:) I'm not sure what age Ashu is but the simpler variety would be the color coded ones like SKY in blue => BLUE SKY and the ones that involve basic prepositions.
Coming up with the kind of puzzle that would allow integrating the theme is trickier than actually cooking up the individual clues:)
Glad you had fun with it!
