I take total delight in going through the paper, The Times of India , every morning - a cup of coffee in hand, the fan on full and not a soul to disturb me. Its a rich resource and one which astounds me as it is offered at the unbelievable price of 5 Rupees. That is the amazingly low price of GBP 0.05p to you and me. The English is a little old fashioned but much fun.It has introduced me to words I had never heard of and has explained Indian politics and current events in an informative and possibly fair manner though, not being Indian I may not be a good judge of that. What I love best are the quirky captions which are just hilarious.
