The front-page report, “Left’s overtures show Jayalalithaa is a key figure in Delhi” (Oct. 21, 2013, some editions), erroneously gave the name of the Odisha Chief Minister as Biju Patnaik. It should have been Naveen Patnaik.

In the Business page report, “U.S. debt rises to $17 trillion” (Oct. 20, 2013), the present debt was wrongly given as $6.747 trillion. It should have been $16.747 trillion.

In the Crossword puzzle 10908 (Oct. 19, 2013), the clue corresponding to Across 29 was given as “O (8).” It should have been “0 (5,3),” as the solution was GOOSE EGG.
