hello,
I hate the Dubyaman strip that is published by The Time of India. It is dull , boring , stupid and senseless.

What do others feel

Was Times of India ditributed free to everybody in world on that day?
Which day? which edition?[And Times of India is not a good newspaper to read,few months back they openly started a scheme of sopnsoring the news without declaring it in the news]

I used to read it till about 94, when i was in collage. I remember it being a good paper back then.
And Yes Hindu is a very good paper, I remember my Father and Grandfather used to talk about which was a good paper, Hindu or Express
How is Indian express doing now a days ?

Its interesting to note that more and more people are turning towards "The Hindu" for their news. Having been brought up in Chennai, the heart of The Hindu publication it is indeed my source for Indian news too.
Also interesting to note that the more conservative Hindu is gaining popularity while the openly liberal Times Of India is losing ground.

I only visit newspaper websites. I used to read TOI when I was in India. Now I dont like Times of India and seldom go to its web site.
For news I go to www.rediff.com.
For masala news I go to Hindustantimes.com

I bet TOI gives more masala news than any other english daily.
Mid-day of bombay is also good in masala but its good only for bombay.
AW can anyone explain what is Masala news ??

I think its me only
and the students preparing for IAS in Delhi who read The Hindu.
No doubt its a good paper, but sometime it becomes too boring with too lengthy articles and editorial.
At that time I pick TOI to fresh my mood.
[in todays paper, there is pic of model in sports section, who is cheering cyclists, but no pic of cyclist
I remember, Amir Khan's divorce was main news under India section in TOI ]

I think even thats better if they spare the main newspaper [city edition]
Who wants Masala can read their city's suppliment.

Indian Express is the best newspaper.
They are the ones who are talking about the real issues. Just two examples of their investigative journalism:-
- Exposed Petrol Pump Scam
- Exposed Bofors Scam
I wonder why they sell less than the big three (TOI, Hindustantimes, The Hindu). By far it is the best newspaper around. I guess because they are never popular with the ruling governments.
How come we always have Vajpayee inaugurating functions for The Times Group or Hindustan Times but never for Indian Express.

Here marketting plays role.
You can have best washing powder in the world in the cheapest price, but it does not gaurantee sale of the product.
Good marketting can sell anything to anyone.
