Crossword Conundrum

One of the things you notice about newspapers in India is the amount of news they syndicate from the UK and US.

On the New India Express, they would syndicate articles from the Daily Telegraph. A lot of the front page leads for Education Express were originally published in the Daily Telegraph – in fact, I must have saved them loads in syndication fees when I wrote for Education Express during my internship!

The Hindu’s favourite UK title is The Guardian, from which they source a lot of their comment and features. This is fine when it’s for your international news section. However, blogger Krish Ashok, is less happy with the fact that The Hindu also buys crossword puzzles from the Guardian.

In a post on his blog, he outlines his vision for a more Chennai-centric crossword.
