Anant's blog: Indian media and Rip Van Winkle

It's been an extraordinary ten years in media in India. When one lives it every day, the changes don't seem extraordinary – but they are.Imagine if Rip Van Winkle (pictured above) was an Indian media professional who had gone to sleep at the end of 1999, only to wake up on January 1, 2010.He’d go nuts.

Anant's blog: The Editors Guild and hot air

The Editors Guild of India has decided to make the issue of paid news in newspapers and news TV channels a focus area for 2010. (There is no link to the announcement on the Editors Guild site, believe it or not, so I link to a blog, churimuri, which has the entire text).I wish Rajdeep Sardesai (the new president of the Guild) and all members of the Guild all the best.
