No Touch Sudoku Puzzle (Fun With Sudoku #388)

It's been a long time since I published No Touch Sudoku. My previous No Touch Sudoku was published long back with the title "No Touch Sudoku Puzzle (Fun With Sudoku #302)". Another thing is that it's been a long time since I created a Sudoku puzzle with a Heart theme. This is not my recent creation. I found this Sudoku created in my old notebook. 
Solving the path of this No Touch Sudoku puzzle is very interesting. It is not very easy. In the middle, during solving I have to pause and make a few calculations before proceeding. My time to solve this No Touch Sudoku puzzle is 9.01 minutes. 
This No Touch Sudoku is dedicated to Swaroop as he likes this Sudoku type very much. I am publishing this No Touch Sudoku as part of the Fun With Sudoku Series as the 388th Sudoku Puzzle in this Series.
