The last 2 days, 27th and 28th of March 2006, have had pathetic crosswords to say the least. I was just wondering what was cryptic about the puzzles apart from a few traces of anagram clues. The Hindu hardly pays any attention to the Crosswords. Yesterday's Crossword grid for example was not symmetrical. I wonder if there is anyone at The Hindu who exclusively takes care of the Crosswords. From what we see, it looks like The Hindu Crossword is not on anyone's KRA.

The Hindu uses lots of Constructors, who churn out crosswords. Some are really good and some like the one who made the grids the last 2 days, are to say the least, pathetic. In the US, a publication like the New York Times, has a fan following just for the NYT Crossword. I believe The Hindu should give enough attention to the Crossword, as there is a huge fan following for the Crossword. N.Ram, are you listening?
