Dear Friend, You had promised that you would compile a list of useful resources and mail them to me. I was looking forward eagerly to the list and to any help you may give. Please let me know about this sunday's xword also. Good luck. Also, is it possible to get the photocopies or the physical copies of the hindu crosswords? I would like to keep a collection. How much would it cost? Thanks. If not the daily ones (though that would also be welcome,) but especially the Sunday ones, because I cannot use the archives for this. My email id is reshmi_chandra@yahoo.co.in

Thanks again. Reshmi.
