Sudoku Mahabharat 2015 Final is over yesterday. I will write my experience in this championship soon.
Now coming to this current Sudoku, name of Battenburg Sudoku come from Battenburg cakes which form checkerboard pattern. Similar in this Battenburg Sudoku, there is checkerboard pattern whenever two odd numbers and two even numbers comes on diagonals to reach other to form this checkerboard pattern. This Sudoku type has appeared in many Sudoku championship in the past. This current Sudoku puzzle which I am posting now, is not very good design as neither given numbers or Battenburg pattern are in symmetry. However this puzzle is having good logical solve path and I avoided giving more hints for this Sudoku for making given hints symmetrical as it was breaking the logical flow. I will try to create some more Sudoku of this type later with better design.
This Battenburg Sudoku, I  am posting as 53rd Sudoku in
