Announcement: Some Exciting News for The Hindu Crossword Solvers

Sponsored Links

drumroll A special series is soon to be published on Crossword Unclued, especially for followers of The Hindu Crossword. You've read Cryptonyte's interview so far, I thought it would be great to get to know all our setters better: who they are in real life, how they set their crosswords, what they do apart from crosswords.

Gear up dear readers, to catch the Other Side of the architects of our across and down delights. Here's announcing a series of interviews with setters of The Hindu. Four more interviews in all (I wasn't able to contact one setter and another declined). The interviews will appear every Monday, starting 14th February 2011. Stay connected via RSS, email, facebook or twitter to get notified as soon as a new post is up.

I am most grateful to the setters of The Hindu who agreed to the idea [and also answered some not-so-comfortable questions sportingly :)].

I hope you all love the series!

hi shuchi,

been following your blog for sometime, never really commented. Thanks for the initiative, i have been out of touch for a while, maybe this will help me get back :)

Hi Shuchi,
That's great news. Let me make a guess, NJ declined and you could not contact Manna, am I right?

Shyam said...

Wow... That's great news, Shuchi!

I am all ears, especially for Sankalak's interview. I really wonder how he manages to come up with those easy ones day in and day out :)

The one who declined may also agree after seeing the other entries, I guess.

Shyam said...

And yeah, like many solvers, having fingers crossed on knowing who that chap Spiffytrix is ;)

Thanks for the initiative Shuchi. It would be great to see the setters speak in a non-cryptic language for a change...
