Another confession, another "uncool" thing about me...I am a cryptic crossword fanatic!

Here's my post about cryptic crosswords in Bengaluru newspapers...

I do love cryptic crosswords, and do any crosswords that I come across...from the very Brit crossword of the Statesman, to the sometimes-ok-sometimes-awful Hindu, to the tickle-my-wits Indian Express or the Deccan Herald...but the Saturday crossword remains my favourite!

The hotel we stayed at in Kochi had life-size models of elephants sitting all round a central building in their front lawn...and this angle to one of them was too good to miss....

And the post title?

Q. "What's the difference between a post-box and an elephant's backside?"

The answer is usually, "I don't know", and the response to that is,

"I'll never ask you to post a letter for me..."
