Some revolutionary clues

January 10, 2011

Today there wa a discussion  in Col Deepak Gopinath’s blog

on the use of the word ‘revolutionary’ in crossword clues – whether it is a reversal indicator or an anagram signal.

In that connection,  I have culled some clues from my dB of Gridman’s clues published on various days in The Hindu Crossword.

Most of you might have solved these when they appeared in the crosswords on the paper, but see if you can recall them.

As for the answer to the ‘whether’ question above, I leave it to you to decide!
