for an Interesting Time-pass

 WELCOME, and DO  ENJOY  MY  HOMEPAGE  (Page 1)  -  have a cake!         

 

 

 This Home Page is intended to not only provide you some info about me and my family - in fact, it can be quite a cake if you have the desire to delve into details!  It includes many of my published articles and other interesting reading matter - which I am delighted to share.  Lively presentations, pictures, jokes and links to very many diverse & informative or newsworthy items are also included - to help one pass time enjoyably.  The varied collection of tidbits including a few puzzles or games - some interactive, are expected to keep you amused for hours - if not for days! Have fun.... (EACH page has interesting items) 

You are welcome to browse the pages at your own pace and convenience, and in several stages - and hopefully, will keep coming back!  I intend to keep adding or modifying the contents from time to time - even if changes are minor in future. 

WHY NOT ADD THIS PAGE to your FAVOURITES for re-visits??

FOOD for THOUGHT - Work this one out - CONFUSING Indeed!

We had learned from our childhood that area of an entire body (triangle, circle, rectangle etc) is equal to the sum of area of the parts it contains... and even if these parts are rearranged differently, the area remains unchanged... but this puzzle below challenges this fact...

What happened? There is now an extra blank square after rearranging the components ....
(Total area still unchanged?? Check carefully)
