On The Hindu Crossword Community, a question was raised about the subjectivity of estimating crossword difficulty.
As a follow-up, my question is: Of The Hindu Crossword compilers, whose crosswords do you find the easiest to crack, whose the most arduous?
There are five compilers at present:
- M. Manna
- Nita Jaggi
How do you fare with them?
Update: A reader has mailed in an interesting suggestion to expand my original question. The additional questions are:
"What other characteristics /peculiarities/preferences/prejudices have you formed of the present set of setters?
When you see the byline what have you come to expect?"
The comments section is open, let's hear you!
[Note: Before you post, please consider if you would use the same words if the compiler was listening. No personal attacks, please!]
