Answers to Questions

How to write like Shankar?

Shankar's speech problem can be used as monoalphabetic substitution encryption with an alphabet designed to bring out the character's pronunciation defect. The correspondence table of the letters is:

XWYAZBCDQEFGHIKLMNOPJRSTUV
DFGHJKLMNUOPQRSTIVWXYZBACE

Example: DCODE becomes AYKAZ

Example: SHANKAR is translated ODXIFXN

How to decrypt Shankar slang text?

The deciphering of Shankar's words consists of the substitution phase but reversed. The substitution alphabet is then:

DFGHJKLMNUOPQRSTIVWXYZBACE
XWYAZBCDQEFGHIKLMNOPJRSTUV

Example: The chapter title in the book X GKRZ OPKNU is tranlated A LOVE STORY.

How to recognize a Shankar ciphertext?

A message using the Shankar speech defect should include the letter Z (which replaces E) with a higher frequency than the other letters. The index of coincidence should be unchanged from the original text.

Any reference to the book Q & A of Vikas Swarup or to the Oscar-winning film Slumdog Millionaire from Danny Boyle or any of their indian characters is undoubtedly a clue.
