    No worries, sir. I feel you are overthinking and putting much more effort into it than is required. Keep it simple. Relax, go for a walk have a cup of filter coffee (!) and then come back to it again.

    As for posting the answer, I’m still getting PMs. Other people are trying the puzzle and in process so don’t worry about holding up the line. Just focus on my PMs and give it another go!

    PS: Viswa posted another hint for you just above my post.

    A double connection that I seem to share with godess Lakshmi, something I learned today trying to figure out her other names! ;)

    A name for Lakshmi is Sridevi

    Often I'm so dumb! It didn't hit my brain at all that I had to Google for it! Even this Tamil name of her hadn't come to my mind right until this minute! :sweatsmile::tearsofjoy: Lol.

    I was wondering about that too. Most funny part is he knew everything about the answer all along but just didn't connect. I had a very different problem. I had the right keywords and came across the answer in my first search but ignored it. Again, after you gave a few clues, still I didn't find the answer and only when the next clue was published by @1Sandhya, it all connected.

    If you call yourself dumb sometimes, I don’t know what I can call myself as! At best it was momentary lapse of concentration and nothing more. I can never dream of beating you in Tamil. Your hometown is known for Tamil literature. We were lucky to have a poet from your hometown who revolutionized the entire motion picture industry.

    A long time ago, during the heydays of this thread I wrote a primer on solving these types of puzzles using past puzzles as examples. I am linking it here to help folks trying these puzzles for the first time. If you’d like to try your hand at creating puzzles, the posts also provide insight into making good (read solvable) puzzles.

    Previous two days, without arriving at solution sleep embraced me by 1a.m. But yesterday after discovering solution and rejoicing feedback from regular folks here, i turned ecstatic and till 3a.m I remained awake with my eyes closed under blanket. Mind was vacillating in excitement. Gurudev, desert, Gajalakshmi, ocean rock, champak, Taj Mahal & that canopied well refused to leave my eyes!

    @Thyagajaran Sir,

    Hahaha. You are describing how I feel before solving and after solving a puzzle. While @Srama is dreaming about the puzzle in her sleep, we are keeping ourselves busy with the images depriving ourselves from sleep. Positive or negative, these puzzles are creating a strong impression in our subconscious mind for sure.
