    Double clues were a nice touch @Viswamitra. Although the second meaning escaped me initially in my rush to solve it adding pics of PM Modi and the actor were pretty cool! Especially I was unaware of the history behind Vivek Oberoi. Nice and elegant.

    I'll give it a day to let more chime in if they wish and post my puzzle tomorrow morning.

    Dear V sir,

    You had me a little stumped or may be I was overthinking! All I could see was yoga, international yoga day, found an article where Vivek Oberoi is praising PM for the dame etc., etc :) While I could see the direct clue, I could not figure out vedantha and its relation to yoga...glad I could eventually figure it out. I am slowly but surely getting a hang of how to solve these. Waiting for @1Sandhya's puzzle!

    Thank you @1Sandhya. It was so satisfying to the puzzle maker when he or she hears about how each solver approached it. It gives a lot of insight in developing future puzzles

    The fun in making the puzzle is in finding the images which will not give away the answer but point towards it. The fun for the solvers is when they approach the solution, they learn so much about other things unrelated to the puzzle. This thread is so exciting because of that.

    I saw images of Meditation/Yoga/ WestBrngal sweet/ Narendra and just googled when was Vivekananda’s Chicago Speech- a real coffeebreak puzzle

    Dear Lakshmi,

    You thought through this puzzle exactly how I created it.

    Puzzle # 8867


    Without further ado, here's the next puzzle. I've tried to use a mix of direct clues, indirect clues and hints. I have absolutely no idea whether you will all find this one difficult or super easy. Please PM me if you get the answer or need a hint. Looking forward to your feedback.

    What am I talking about?

    Sir, instead of a common factor, I suggest you try to make a list of all the words that come to mind when you look at the images. Then use a combination of those images to search on Google. With the right combination of words, the answer should appear on the first page of search results. @1Sandhya has made the clues very intuitive and simple. You just need to the find the right combination of keywords.

    To all,

    I know most people prefer to solve over private messages and that is perfectly fine. Once you receive confirmation of your answer, could you guys post a clue (within spoiler tags if you prefer) for those still solving? It would help keep the discussion active and make the puzzle more approachable for those finding it tough.
