Yes, WCCT problems are with critical moves anti-batteries, so the thematic complex looks fine for this tourney, but I expect more interesting and original ideas there.

Seetharaman may want to know: Are Latvian sweets sugar free? :-)

haha, it's a good question :) Actually I prefer a regular one with a lot of sugar :) And... Shankar Ram - welcome to the kobulchess comments. Some days ago Seetharaman inform us that you did not composing from a long time ago. I hope you will do it again and we will see your new (fairy) problems soon!
