So you think you are a fan of Holmes'? The quotations below are golden words of wisdom from this all time favourite detective. What you have to do is to find out the stories (long or short) from which these have been taken. 

(These quotations appeared in the brochure of Pulse 2001 in the form of introductions to the various events of Sahityaki, the Literary Festival.)

Elementary, my dear Watson.

The Quizzes

Ah, that is a question that will take some time to answer.

Trivia Quiz

I consider that a manís brain originally is like a little empty attic, and you have to stock it with such furniture as you choose... Depend upon it there comes a time when for every addition of knowledge you forget something that you knew before. It is of the highest importance, therefore, not to have useless facts elbowing out the useful ones. 

Cartoons Quiz

And, first, one or two questions, Mr. Wilson

Western Music Quiz

Do you remember what Darwin says about music? He claims that the power of producing and appreciating it existed among the human race long before the power of speech was arrived at. Perhaps that is why we are so subtly influenced by it.

Science Quiz

It is entirely a question of barometric pressure.

Medical Trivia Quiz

Never mind. The question now is about haemoglobin.

Sports Quiz

Donít you remember the amateur who fought three rounds with you at Alisonís rooms...?

Literature Quiz

... but he was by no means such a phenomenon as Poe appeared to imagine. 

Heritage Quiz

I should judge that the watch belonged to your elder brother, who inherited it from your father.

India Quiz

She showed it to me, Watson, and it was an Indian rupee.   

The Debates

Let us for a moment argue upon this supposition. 

Extempore (English and Hindi)

Excuse me a moment, and I may be able to give you some further information about it.

Point-Counter Point

Perhaps I have. Perhaps I havenít. I may be able to say more soon.

Elocution (Bilingual)

Cut out the poetry, Watson. 

Press Conference (Bilingual)

The whole world will know the facts presently, so there can be no harm if I discuss them here.

Just a Minute

One moment, Lestrade... the gentleman was about to give us an account of this very interesting affair...

Creative Writing (English and Hindi)

Write it down, man, write it down!

Dumb Charades (English and Hindi)

The features are given to man as the means by which he shall express... and yours are faithful servants.

Hieroglyphics

These hieroglyphics have evidently a meaning. If it is a purely arbitrary one, it may be impossible for us to solve it. If, on the other hand, it is systematic, I have no doubt that we shall get to the bottom of it.

Password (English and Hindi)

... something which might give a clue to the personís identity.

Literary Megamix

Amid the action and reaction of so dense a swarm of humanity, every possible combination of events may be expected to take place.

Daily Crossword and Scrabble Contest

Now, in the single word I have already got the two Eís coming second and fourth in a word of five letters.

The Sherlock Holmes Mania

Excellent, Watson! And how did you localize me?
