Greetings from Kolkata. The month of Ramadan is now over. I fasted for the whole month as usual. For some fasters, it was a tough time last week here in West Bengal as the temperature soared to above 111°F. We celebrated Eid al-Fitr yesterday, a day later than the two kingdoms (Saudi Arabia and United), as that depended on the sighting of the moon. However, I am still unaware of the name of the place on earth where the new moon could ever be sighted first than the rest of the world! Anyway, to all Eid Mubarak. Dada has given us a challenging yet an enjoyable puzzle and I have the pleasure of presenting to you once again a full review of the same and would be delighted to have your precious feedback for my encouragement and improvement.
