The Hindu is a leading English-language Indian daily newspaper. With a circulation of 1.45 million, TheHindu is the second-largest circulated daily English newspaper in India after Times of India, and slightlyahead of The Economic Times. According to the Indian Readership Survey (IRS) 2008 The Hindu is thethird most-widely read English newspaper in India (after Times of India and Hindustan Times) with areadership of 5.2 million. It has its largest base of circulation in South India, especially Tamil Nadu.Headquartered at Chennai (formerly called Madras), The Hindu was published weekly when it waslaunched in 1878, and started publishing daily in 1889. The Hindu became, in 1995, the first Indiannewspaper to offer an online edition. The Hindu is published from 13 locations Bangalore, Chennai,Coimbatore, Delhi, Hyderabad, Kochi, Kolkata, Madurai, Mangalore, Thiruvananthapuram, Tiruchirapalli,Vijayawada and Visakhapatnam.The Hindu s basically a newspaper with much of an intellectual resource as most of the articles in it iswritten by people of great repute. It also handles several social maligns and problems of contemporaryrelevancy with prodigious way of reporting. Hindus way of writing style represents a lot of similaritywith some of foreign dailies like that of The Guardian. Though it gives required importance to newsfrom specific regions as well, but it never misses any of the contemporary social and national issues thatare of public significance rather than just focusing on the news scope. I think this is what distinguishesThe Hindu from others. Politically, it doesnt favor any of the sides particularly but appreciatesnoticeable acts and condemns unscrupulous acts as well. In short I would recommend a well informedand socially responsible reader to include The Hindu in his reading.
