    Congrats to Juana, Dhruv, Sankalan and others who won. I could not participate in the quiz as I thought I will do it later but when saw the last date was gone.

    It was really a very interesting contest and many people participated in it.

    Some clues were really difficult and to find a thing corresponding to them in our household was a challenge. Though we use them but they do not come in our memory so easily. A few clues were comparable to the difficult clues generally found in newspaper cryptic crosswords and there I think, many members struggled to decipher the clues.

    Anyway, it was a good fun and good exercise of the mind. I congratulate all the winners who could score such high, really great and keep up your enthusiasm in future also in such contests. All the best.

    Congratulations to the joint winners Juana and Dhruv. The OWL Quiz Challenge was really interesting and I found few clues challenging. It took me some time to think about those and now after checking the answers it appears I went very close to few of them.

    I checked and found my tally correct.

    This contest was a unique one. I truly enjoyed doing it. Hearty congratulations to all the winners.

    Congratulations Dhruv for being the 'joint winner' along with me. Congratulations Sankalan Bhattacharya for grabbing the second place.

    I did the quiz in under an hour, of seeing it. Did not have a chance to review answers before submission, as it was already late and I had other chores to complete. I also had a tight schedule the following day, so could not postpone sending the answers until the next day. Glad I could win the first prize.
