The Indian Puzzle Championship will be held on the Logic Masters India site on Sunday, the 7th of July, 2 PM onwards. Other than determining India's top puzzle solving talent, this competition usually has some brilliant international authors providing fun puzzles to solve. This competition is also used to determine the Indian team for the World Puzzle Championships which will be held in China later this year. The top 3 competitors are eligible to make the team.

 The relevant links -

The Competition page - http://logicmastersindia.com/2013/IPC/ (also note that clicking on History link here will give you the links for past years' Championship puzzles, which are good for general practice)

The Forum discussion page - http://logicmastersindia.com/forum/forums/thread-view.asp?tid=694

A note to the Indi Police - This post is of no personal benefit to me, as I am also a competitor in this Championship, and I'm basically inviting competition by doing this. I am merely interested to create awareness about my interest, and this event is a big one on our calendar and should be known to people. Also, I have talked to Animesh in detail about this and he has permitted me to make the post.

Looking forward to your participation.

Regards,

Prasanna.

This is damn interesting, I have a tough time solving even those simple ones that come in the newspaper :P Rooting for your flight to China, Good Luck, Prasanna! Smile

Well, I won't say I had a tough time solving those, but I was still just as lost at this level for a long time, until I had some guidance, and then I found most varieties a lot more fun than the newspaper ones. Now I try to guide people myself (have 3 "students" at least).

And thanks for the wishes Smile

Thanks :) Wonderful, hope you do. I'll initiate some kind of tips/how-to's/helper posts this year once the instructions are released too. The USA did a similar thing to help new solvers ease in.

Rajni, now I'll start calling you Rajnigandha... no, don't think I'm angry as I don't have brain (according to you)... it's only because those smileys you're using of late have sweet feminine touch! Cheers Rajnigandha!!!

Ranjith

AS, see this page 

Rama Raju while showing assertiveness in the female character, brings out sensitivity in the hero who plays a lyricist. He loves flowers and she likes to light lamps. He writes and she sings. Together they love and believe in freedom. After watching the film, one realises how wrong it is to say that one thinks like a woman, likes certain things like a woman because the soul is the same for both the sexes.

Hey Indiblogger, Our Champ Prasanna has Qualified from Times Sudoku Championships in Mumbai and will get to go to China in October 13.  A warm round of applause should make him win this one in China.

Congrats Prasanna, hats off to you Smile

Yo, sure great feat. Rock on bro.

Slight correction, there's a National finals next weekend that I also have to qualify into the top 4 in, to make it on the Sudoku team (I qualified in 2nd place in the Mumbai city round today) Tongue out But in general, I'm more confident of doing well in the finals than I was in the regionals, because the slightly longer nature of the finals makes it not so dependent on slight mistakes.

Thanks all the same Smile
