No paper today as well, which means the regular fix is not available.
I am posting below some clues sent to me by Raju. As these are in a 25 x 25 grid which he sent me I cannot make an Acroos Lite version.
Each commenter may answer 2 per head and provide annotations with your answers. After 6 PM this restriction is null and void.
Questions, brickbats if any be directed towards Raju.
Please be warned the answers are literally a mouthful in some cases.
