 ABOUT THE TITLE
The Press in India has always been at the forefront of national life. Liberal notions of the power of the press came from those who were involved in the country s freedom movement and included a belief in journalism s capacity to mould public opinion and safeguard the rights of its citizens. In the years that followed the press faced numerous challenges including attempts to curb the freedom of expression. This book is alive and well in India in the sixth decade after independence and indeed much of what has appeared in Indian newspapers has shaped and affected the course of Indian democracy.
This anthology looks at some themes that defined national discourse from around the time of independence to the present day as expressed through journalism in the English press. It showcases a wide range of articles that have expanded the terms of debate expressed criticism and dissent and enriched the Indian press. In doing so they have strengthened the very fabric of Indian democracy. Newspapers like The Hindu the Indian express the Hindustan times and the times of India have thus been inextricably bound with the destiny of this nation offering incisive analyses and clarity on issues that critically impacted on the lives of its people.
