Implement deskewing (basically straightening a tilted image) code in any language of choice. The algorithm may be any good standard one of your choice. The image to be tested on is this.

Then mail to me at debayanin AT gmail DOT com , or on any mailing list.

I think hough transforms would be the best way. I have been facing some difficulty in implementing this in python for the test images, but the theory is sound and will ultimately give good results.
