By-Lines For THC Compilers

The year 2008 saw a landmark change in The Hindu crossword. All these years, their compilers worked behind-the-scene. We solved their puzzles, made guesses about who and how many, but we were never sure.

That changed since September 2008. The Hindu began carrying the compiler's name along with their daily crossword. Given the vast variation in style and quality of the THC puzzles, I'd call this is a very positive development. A glance at the by-line gives you a pretty good idea about what to expect from the puzzle.
