Quiz Groningen

I believe that two questions from the Cafe Atlantis Quiz competition will be interesting for you:
1.) What is the Indian theme in composition?

The Indian theme was named after a composer from England published a problem in an Indian newspaper in 1845. The winning idea of the problem is to stalemate one of our own pieces.
Loveday, H. - The Indian theme
Mate in 4, 1845

2.) How should this position end?
