More on Indian English Newspapers (9 Articles)
 Indian English NewspapersThe tradition of newspaper in India began with India's struggle for independence. During this period the national leaders of India published several newspapers and journals and used it as a means for creating consciousness among the Indians. The newspapers have been subjected to serious repression and a manifestation of this subjugation was the Vernacular Press Act of 1878. It was passed to suppress the freedom of the native press. In the post independence period, newspapers became an essential part of the Indian life, as it was the only source of information. Over the years one can notice a change in the content of the newspaper. The newspaper has become glossier in content with its focus shifting over subjects like lifestyle, travel, cuisine, fashion, and showbiz.
