The unending Centre-Bengal, BJP-TMC, Modi-Mamata confrontations are getting ugly and mark a tragic new low for cooperative federalism. Independent India’s worst crisis needs the Centre and states to work closer than ever, not fight like Tom and Jerry. And BJP needs to accept it lost Bengal elections fair and square.
Why news media is in crisis & How you can fix it
India needs free, fair, non-hyphenated and questioning journalism even more as it faces multiple crises.
But the news media is in a crisis of its own. There have been brutal layoffs and pay-cuts. The best of journalism is shrinking, yielding to crude prime-time spectacle.
ThePrint has the finest young reporters, columnists and editors working for it. Sustaining journalism of this quality needs smart and thinking people like you to pay for it. Whether you live in India or overseas, you can do it here.
