Khelo India Khelo!!

What is da name of this board game and also give me the name of it's developer??

Fear of the dark......

The origin of the name X is unclear -- as with so many maritime symbols. It may have come from "Old Roger" which was slang for the devil. It may have come from the french for "red beauty" or joli rouge which likely referred to red flags (symbolizing blood) used by feared privateers in the 1700s. No matter its origin, however, its intent was clear: it was an intimidating signal to all who could see it.

Give me X. Also tell how this was an intimidating signal.

Quizical music!!

"The idea came up at the time when I was completely bereft of ideas. I'd been working on my own music for a while and was quite lost, actually. And I really appreciated someone coming along and saying, "Here's a specific problem – solve it." The thing from the agency said, "We want a piece of music that is inspiring, universal, blah-blah, da-da-da, optimistic, futuristic, sentimental, emotional," this whole list of adjectives, and then at the bottom it said "and it must be 3¼ seconds long." I thought this was so funny and an amazing thought to actually try to make a little piece of music. It's like making a tiny little jewel. In fact, I made 84 pieces. I got completely into this world of tiny, tiny little pieces of music. I was so sensitive to microseconds at the end of this that it really broke a logjam in my own work. Then when I'd finished that and I went back to working with pieces that were like three minutes long, it seemed like oceans of time". -This was Brian Eno talking about his most famous creation. What is being talked about here??
