    Summer Bonanza #10


    The map above suggests something. What? (I am not looking for a very specific answer!! )


    Well they say.. ‘looks are deceptive’ and this happens to be no exception.

    This cute little kid isn’t so cute after all. He is X. Identify X.


    Don't worry about me. I'm fine though perhaps a little tired. I hope to come home soon and then
    I can rest in your arms. I have a great longing for rest, but my duty to the people comes before
    everything else. I thank you for the proof of your affection and ask you also to thank your
    esteemed father and your most gracious mother for their greetings and good wishes. I am very
    proud of the honor - please tell them that - to possess the love of girl who comes from such a
    distinguished family.
    From my whole heart, your X."

    I am beside myself. I am dying of anxiety now that I know you are in danger. Come back as soon
    as possible. I feel as if I am going insane.
    The weather is beautiful here and everything seems so peaceful that I am ashamed of myself ...
    You know I have always told you that I would die if anything happened to you. From our first
    meeting on, I have promised myself to follow you wherever you go, even to death. You know that I live only for your love.
    Yours Y"

    X and Y are very specially related. Who is Y?


    The name derives from a speech made on 18 June, 1940 in the House of Commons. He said, "The Battle of A is over. I expect the Z is about to begin..."
    Well if you are utterly confused, let me help you out. A is the name of a country shown in the
    1st picture and it happens to be a rival of Z. The battle of Z is actually what I am looking for!


    If you get the question above, this should be a piece of cake!!

    Now, finally tell me how this date is connected to this entire thing.

    Summer Bonanza #9

    This is a Long Connect with 5 Questions:---

    1) As an only child, X, nicknamed Y, is very pampered as an extra treasure because his parents are already elderly when he is born. At school, X is a brilliant student, appointed as Head Boy without being a prefect, and said to have been a talented player of Quidditch.In the film version, X's name is listed on a plaque as a Seeker on his Quidditch team; however, he was intended in the book to be a Chaser. Y is the connect.

    2) It is a small carnivorous mammal.Its range in the wild originally extended through European Russia to Poland and Scandinavia.While hunting of them is still common in Russia, most fur in the market is now commercially farmed. Which mammal?

    3) X is a subsidiary of Y, both of which manufactures similar commodities. X was originally named after its founders in 1895 but was renamed in 1958. The company's founders found the name in a dictionary won in a race by one of them as a boy; the dictionary was a South African edition, hence the spelling. X is the connect.

    4) Orange uses a variation of a philosophy in their motto, "I am who I am because of everyone". Which philosophy?

    5) They are a percussion instrument consisting of the hembra (female) and macho (male) parts. It is associated with a steady patter of eighth-notes known as the hammer. Which instrument?
