Update by Sowmya -16th January 2017 – We had a good response for the contest. A total of 40 clues were set by 20 setters, which was lower than the the previous contest, but in line with earlier contests.

Thanks to all of you who participated and submitted entries. You can view the entries received in this contest here.

10 of these were shortlisted by our host Vinod Raman. While the identity of setters were not revealed to him, he provided us with replacements for three clues, one by Ajeesh and two by SSv Avtaar, so that the final shortlist had only one clue per each setter.

A whopping 37 respondents cast votes for this contest.  Here are the results of our poll..

Setter Clue Votes
Ajeesh Wandering man,  i.e. hobo,mostly 14
Martin DeMello Artist in a garret? Throw him a bone! 9

Ajeesh’s wandering hobo, Aashwina’s gypsy and the naughty boy of Loks’ were all tied with 14 votes each, after the voting was finished.

The host Vinod gave us a clear decision, picking Ajeesh’s Wandering hobo as the ultimate BOHEMIAN.
