     dear prativa: what if on move 3 black takes queen with his king instead of with his knight?

    There is a "smothered" mate as well, but it takes two moves more:

    1.Qh6+ Ke8 2.Ng7+ Kf8 3.Ne6+ Kf7 4.Qg7+ Ke8 5.Qf8+ Rxf8(or Nxf8) 6.Ng7#

    I like it better.

    Nice idea, but if 3. ... Kxf8 instead of Nxf8 capturing the White Queen, then your solution may not work as the king seems to have more escape squares.
