I like Mathematics and Puzzles and Problem Solving from very young age. Even today I dabble with many puzzles in my free time and I am in fact working on a book of puzzles (well, I am ashamed of saying so, because it's in the making for last 2+ years). Puzzles, riddles etc, if used... Continue Reading →
