More about life in India

The press in India is an interesting. There are major newspapers in India which are published in all major cities.  They major newspapers are in English with names like Deccan Herald, The Hindu, Indian Express, Times of India.  There are plenty of newspapers in regional languages.  My sister spends 9-10 am every day reading the newspaper, doing croddword puzzles, and soduko.  She is very good at it.  This is how she keeps her mind alert.

The newspapers do carry some news from abroad.  Perhaps one or two stories from the US.  One is more likely to see stories from UK, Holland, France or Germany than the US. 

The press is relatively free, and aggressive in pursuing problems it sees in the government.  It carries some columnists from other papers.  Today, I saw a column from Paul Krugman from the New York Times.  The other day, I saw a column from the Guardian from UK.  All spelling here is very  UK English.  They have cartoons as well, ame as what we get, but less in quantity.
