We’re on a quest to crack some of the most fascinating forms of patterns and codes in our Summer Issue- Codebreakers.
Learn about the history of cryptography (or code-making) in Hourglass and check out some clever tricks of an ancient trade. Flip to Green Room to read about how languages are related to one another through patterns. Break the code and you open up a whole new world by understanding another civilisation!
Find something that you want to try out or make your own? Set up a secret club with your friends, complete with a secret language. And speaking of secrets, we’ve kept and spilled a few. Read more about it in Sticky Situations.
As you read through this issue, don’t forget to lift your head up for all the patterns around you! Building steps, pavement stones, leaf arrangements, spots on insect wings, maybe even cars at a traffic light. The world is written in patterns and codes, you just have to take the time to look.

Our question for Sticky Situations, the section where we introspect, was -
Can you Count Your Blessings?
This time in Sticky Situations, we’re going to stop and before we give or receive, we’re going to say “Thank You”. How about if this time, we give thanks, not gifts? Appreciate people a little more, and things a little less. And after we stop taking everything for granted, how about reaching out to others less fortunate than you?
Did you read “Sadako and the Thousand Cranes”, a book recommended in our Monsoon issue? Japanese legend goes that anyone who folds 1000 cranes, will be granted a wish. Cranes have great symbolism in many cultures for a long life, good luck, fidelity and loyalty, and even immortality.
We decided to make paper cranes for all our friends wishing them good health and happiness. You can learn how to make one (check this link – http://www.pinterest.com/pin/A1t4QgAQwEUH9rOfgzMAAAA/ ) .
