    You'll be surprised at how popular this puzzles thread is. : ) There are people solving who don't post here or send PM. : ) We don't know who is last to solve or still solving.
    Yes. Till the answer is posted by the puzzle creator, safer to put answers in a spoiler.

    Wow! I didn't know that! How do we know about them unless we hear from them or they are communicating through private messages? It is interesting! I could have never guessed it.

    Regarding clues, there are many which are really hints but don’t give away the answer. The poster should use their discretion and look at it from other solvers’ angle to decide whether their hint will spoil it for other solvers instead of helping them. If hints are given in spoiler, everyone may be afraid of opening the spoiler thinking it might contain answer. Frankly, spoiler is for direct answer or hints that are directly revealing the answer like the example you had mentioned.

    Thanks Dear Viswa. A queer feel with those words of yours. I was brooding of conceiving and constructing one such simple yet mind boggling
    Image puzzle.
    IT was profound sleep last night. I woke up with wonderful dream of exiting a class after lecturing. Unable to make out in which discipline my lecture was! It Could be image puzzle or in maths. I was wondering how she “solved” the problem of locating a water pump station near the river on its bank between two distant towns!

    Regards.

    What are these images pointing to? A moderate puzzle. Much like a moderate hike, these have a way of surprising you one way or the other. : ) Either they turn out to be unbelievably easy or they make you curse whoever came up with the description. :smash2: If you have heard of the answer, the images will make sense right away. Perhaps without even googling for anything. If not, it might take some experimentation with keywords. If you're stuck, fret not. I will post more clues periodically. For those who solve quietly, behind the scenes, please know that it is common for participants to send private messages to discuss their ideas or confirm a clue or answer. Feel free to message me!

    Have fun solving!:thumbup:

    PS: Once again, please follow posting etiquette. A good clue is always welcome but if you're unsure, please cover your answers with spoiler tags or send me a private message.

    Wow! Great timing Gauri! After getting up early today for the festival and completing everything I’m in food coma stage after gorging on too many festive goodies post puja! Lazily came here to check out how all are doing and found this - a new puzzle posted. Yay! This feels like one of those Special Festival Bumper offers they have back home which they roll out on special occasions. :)
    Maybe we should make this a tradition ;)

    I'm trying to get to all the messages. I'm out in the wilderness for the next 2 days. Connection is spotty. More clues when I return to civilization.

    Don't look too deep. Keywords are superficial. Key question is 'where', not 'what'.
