The Hindu The Hindu is a leading English-language Indian daily newspaper. With a circulation of 1.45 million, The Hindu is the second-largest circulated daily English newspaper in India after Times of India, and slightly ahead of The Economic Times. According to the Indian Readership Survey (IRS) 2008 The Hindu is the third most-widely read English newspaper in India (after Times of India and Hindustan Times) with a readership 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 was launched in 1878, and started publishing daily in 1889. The Hindu became, in 1995, the first Indian newspaper 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 is written by people of great repute. It also handles several social maligns and problems of contemporary relevancy with prodigious way of reporting. Hindu s way of writing style represents a lot of similarity with some of foreign dailies like that of The Guardian. Though it gives required importance to news from specific regions as well, but it never misses any of the contemporary social and national issues that are of public significance rather than just focusing on the news scope. I think this is what distinguishes The Hindu from others. Politically, it doesn t favor any of the sides particularly but appreciates noticeable acts and condemns unscrupulous acts as well. In short I would recommend a well informed and socially responsible reader to include The Hindu in his reading.
The Times of India The Times of India (TIMES OF INDIA) is a popular English-language broadsheet daily newspaper in India. It has the largest circulation among all English-language daily newspapers in the world, across all formats (broadsheet, compact, Berliner and online). It is owned and managed by Bennett, Coleman & Co. Ltd. which is owned by the Sahu Jain family. In 2008, the newspaper reported that (with a circulation of over 3.14 million) it was certified by the Audit Bureau of Circulations as the world's largest selling Englishlanguage daily newspaper, placing as the 8th largest selling newspaper in any language in the world.
According to the Indian Readership Survey (IRS) 2008, the Times of India is the most widely read English newspaper in India with a readership of 13.3 million. This ranks the Times of India as the top English newspaper in India by readership. According to ComScore, TIMES OF INDIA Online is the world's mostvisited newspaper website with 159 million page views in May 2009, ahead of the New York Times, The Sun, Washington Post, Daily Mail and USA Today websites. A newspaper that delights both serious readers as well as enthusiastic and ambitious youth, that is what is The Times of India. As a newspaper it has both articles of social value as well as of those which project the reflection of reader requirements. Speaking about its front page, Times is a consistent reporter in terms of news that has scope rather than much of a social germaneness. This approach of Times has made it popular among the youth and middle aged. But it does give an account of articles of satisfactory standards.Times have restricted its circulation to certain parts of the country mainly metros and major cities and this is reflected in its pages as there is a great deal of advertisements compared to The Hindu. But still it manages to be one of the widely read dailies. Anyone who needs a quick recap of the day can always rely on The Times safely.
DAY 1-Dec 1 Hindu No strategic sale of Central Public Sector Undertakings: Pranab Robust 7.9% GDP growth, a pleasant surprise It s for Centre to decide whether or not to elevate Dinakaran: CJI Editorials Revisiting bank consolidation
Sri Lankan drama
Times of India Economy betters best hopes, grows at 7.9% Question Hour sinks as 34 MPs skip the House Lists out: 64% BBMP wards under quota
Editorials Climate Calculus-Emission figures being bandied about just don t add up Looking For Answers-The Kaiga incident highlights security and safety concerns at nuclear facilities
Both the newspapers spoke about the country s larger than expected growth clocked at 7.9. The Hindu had head news as a follow up for the above news whereas Times focused on local news as well as MPs skipping from the house rendering the question hour futile. Times editorial was dedicated to the recent issue at Kaiga power plant and the soon to be happening Copenhagen summit. Hindu was attentive on economic issues of banks and fingered the Sri Lankan issue.
DAY 2-Dec 2 Times of India
Mid-air prank almost crashed Mumbai flight US seeks India push on Af-Pak MAY HAVE TO PREFIX A 9 -From Jan 1, your cell no. could have another 9 Editorials Revving up-India s economic engine begins to fire once again Koda s Conduct-Jharkhand ex-chief minister arrested amidst assembly election
Hindu Manmohan, Obama discuss Afghanistan Pranab has a run-in with Left All-party team for Copenhagen Editorials Learning from Kaiga A persistent issue
Hindu spoke about the Kaiga issue right after a day Times had it in their editorial. Both of them had the discussion between Manmohan and Obama in their pages. Times had economic matters in their editorial today. Reports pertaining to Copenhagen summit have been popping a lot these days, so was Hindu s priority.
DAY 3-Dec 3 Times of India BHOPAL 25 Years LATER-Court Rejects Plea for More Compensation 2 B lore blasts suspects held in Bangladesh LeT Men with Kerala Roots Turned Over To Indian Forces
Editorials The Road Ahead-After years of mismanagement, Obama tries fresh approach to Afghanistan Save the chicken to save the world: synthetic meat could be manna from heaven
Hindu Troops withdrawal in J&K planned
Obama unveils new Afghan strategy India welcomes U.S. move
Editorials Limits of the Afghan surge Counting the tigers
It was strange that Hindu hadn t had any articles on Bhopal tragedy in its front page. Obama s Afghan strategy was present in both either as front page news or as an editorial. Times reported the striking revelation of men behind Bangalore blasts.
DAY 4-Dec 4 Hindu Encouraging signals on talks with ULFA: Gogoi Jairam Ramesh: 20-25 % carbon emission intensity cut by 2020 Virender Sehwag sparkles as India takes command of Mumbai Test Editorials Beyond expectations Bigotry in Switzerland
Times of India India vows to reduce emissions by 20-25% Shewack CET will soon organize placements too Editorials
Assamese Cheer Burning Issue
Today editorials of both the newspapers were observing varied topics with analysis. Both the editorials were of reputable standards. Shewag s show came out to be front page lines for both. Till now a peaceful region of Switzerland facing a new and considerably important issue was covered by Hindu s editorial. Minister Jairam Ramesh s statement found place in both front pages.
DAY 5-Dec 5 Hindu Law ministry rejects Dinakaran s elevation Rajkhowa held, brought to Guwahati Key secessionist leader shot, critical Editorials CHOGM misses key opportunities Commemorating Krishnadeva Raya Times of India Reddys get rude jolt, CBI set to start probe English closing in on Hindi Kris: single window is anything but single Editorials The ball is there to be hit In reply to CJI law ministry s rejection of Dinakaran s elevation found place in Hindu s front page as Times front page was cluttered with scrap of particularly no value at all. Sunday doesn t mean newspapers to be lazy on issues. When Hindu had editorials pertaining to international as well as regional importance Times had theirs on Shewag s heroic act that happened the other day.
DAY 6-Dec 6 Hindu ULFA leaders Rajkhowa, Barua produces in court Dialogue only way out, says Mirwaiz-Hurriyat leader Qureshi continues to be critical T.V report on TRS chief health sparks violence
Times of India 4 Steps to the top-India vs. Sri Lanka test match Three class 1 kids punished brutally-Hadn t pinned ID cards to uniform Bangalore to be integrated medicine hub
Hindu was keen on covering hot national as well as state issues whereas Times had just one national headline followed by two other state news. One important thing to be noted here was placement of a very petty update in Times front page. My analysis of Times way of reporting news especially this kind of irrelevancies have popped up quite a few times. On the other hand Hindu always preserves a certain standard in its front page news articles.
DAY 7-Dec 7 Times of India The Best & Brightest-Finally, India Is Ranked World No. 1 Rift ends, key negotiators back in team-Minister: India Not Yielding India, Russia set to sign deal for non-stop uranium supply
Editorials English Endures-It s the lingua franca for success in an interconnected world Food Follies-Supply-side measures needed to tackle rising food prices

Editorials Tackling a jobless recovery Peace prospects in Assam Copenhagen: seize the chance
Today both the newspapers had an equal share of poise in content. Russian civil nuclear agreement was dominant on both fronts. Copenhagen is also getting importance these days as the climate summit
began today. Both the editorials discussed issues related to recession and its after effects as in about increasing rate of unemployment. DAY 8-Dec 8 Hindu Nuclear pact signed with Russia- Major step forward in strengthening our ties: Manmohan Headley charged in U.S. court- With criminal conspiracy in Mumbai terror attacks BJP under fire as Liberhan debate opens
Editorials Kashmir s bloody road to peace India scales Test summit

Editorials Heady Moment -India is top Test playing nation in ICC rankings Coal Comfort-India to reduce emissions from coal-based power generators
The Indo-Russian nuclear deal got christened today which was placed in both the newspapers fronts. And the fate of the foreign hand in Mumbai terror attacks was also present in both newspapers. India s historic moment in cricket was also cherished in both editorials.
DAY 9-Dec 9
Times of India KCR critical, AP braces for Telangana upsurge-Health Could Take Irreversible Hit If He Doesn t Eat Rs. 42L lost a day if Houses don t work-40 Of 52 Days Marred by Dharnas Already Denmark bats for the rich

Editorials Limiting salt intake Correct diagnosis, wrong cure The rising new hot topic was TRS chief s critical condition. Times even had an editorial regarding the matter. While Hindu had some not-so-important editorials, today as a matter of fact Times was straight to the point. They had an editorial which discussed the recently signed civilian nuclear deal between India and Russia.
DAY 10-Dec 10 Times of India
Manmohan Govt Blinks, Will Split AP to Create State Of Telangana-Resolution Could Be Tabled In Assembly Today KCR ends fast; Hyderabad is must, says son You can read Potter in school!-CBSE Project To Get Kids to Read More

Editorials Clear and commendable The ethanol challenge When the Liberhan issue made it to Times editorial Hindu was focused on climate anxieties to be included in their open page. But it is a strange coincidence so that majority of the front-page news was same for both the newspapers. New state Telangana topped the charts as Hindu as well as Times placed an update on the issue with details. Day 11-Dec 11 Hindu 100 MLAs from Andhra, Rayalaseema regions quit-Protests erupt over Centre s decision on Telangana GJM calls Darjeeling bandh-Centre s announcement triggers spate of demands for separate States FourCPI (M) men killed by suspected Maoists

Telangana issue topped the headlines today. Times even had their editorial pertaining to the issue. Another headline-editorial relation was between news about a united climate stand in the coming future. Two other news were based on the ever increasing threat of terrorism which again both internal and external terrorism.
DAY 12-Dec 12 Hindu Nothing will be done in haste, Manmohan assures MPs-Resolution on Telangana to be moved after consensus 30 more MLAs quit in protest-Congress, Praja Rajyam MLAs stage demonstration Bandh in coastal Andhra and Rayalaseema total GJM: we are not piggybacking on Telangana-Ours is the oldest demand, team tells Chidambaram.

Today also, prime importance was given to the Telangana. Hindu s all the three main headlines were concerning Telangana. Hindu had their editorial concentrated on the terrorist group Lashkar-e-Taiba. Whereas Times of India s editorial was about the decline of the good old scooter.
DAY 13-Dec 13 Hindu Violence rocks Andhra, Rayalaseema-Students go on the rampage in Anantapur, lay siege to police station 20 A.P. Ministers plan to quit We are not for peaking year concept -India will play constructive role: Jairam Times of India Most ministers quitting, AP heads for Prez rule-Rosaiah Awaits High Command s Approval To Step Down Eating out back with a vengeance-Techies Drive Restaurant Resurgence Truthful witness?-Is FBI making a deal with Headley?
Andhra is witnessing turmoil in its democratic setup. Both the newspapers have tracked Andhra s plight meticulously in the recent days. After the climate summit,it is one of the first public comments made by Minister Jairam, and it is on Hindu s front page that India will play a constructive role. Times of India sparks a controversy through a suspicious comment about FBI regarding the Headley issue.

Hindu was keen on the Andhra issue with two dedicated headspaces. However, Times had a more of readership oriented news in their front page. Hindu talked about the unsuccessful recovery faced by the second largest economy and the South American issue of Chavez s policies. Times too had editorials worth mentioning.
