Owing to comments that the cryptic clues were both tough and slightly absurd, we have done away with cryptic clues for this week. This weeks crossword is “know your furniture” and the clues are straightforward and very easy to crack. So happy solving and hope that this time the responses will be more enthusiastic. You could leave the number of clues you solved and the time taken in the comments section.

Here are the direct clues of yesterdays “Aavaas Crossword-01”. I think solving this one will be much easier than solving yesterdays. I am hoping people will not be discouraged by yesterdays clues and try to solve this with enthusiasm. Once you have figured out the clue, try figuring how the cryptic clues lead to the same answer. Working backwards like this , you will be able to solve the cryptic clues in future.

We thought a crossword will make the site more interactive. The crossword is expected to come out every Saturday(or every other Saturday) in the cryptic form, the direct clues will be revealed on Sundays and then the answers finally on Monday morning. The crossword here is a cryptic crossword. However, I have not stuck to the hard and fast rules of framing crossword clues. I assure you that most of them are crackable and fun. While some may have you flummoxed, most are directed at people who haven’t necessarily tried out crosswords earlier nevertheless are interested. If you feel cryptic clues is not your cup of tea, then wait for another day and you will have the direct ones to work with.Looking forward to comments claiming you have finished the grid in no time. Cheers!!
