Aditya Sinha's fearless writing was bound to lead to his exit sooner than later. Hopefully he will bring the same culture to DNA, and the owners have the courage to give him the leeway he deserves. As far as TNIE is concerned, it will no longer carry the same power under the new chief whose reputation recently took a battering and who had to be let go of by India Today.
Dear Sir heartily welcome to our Family . by G.Abel Selwyn (Sales Executive) The New Indian Express. Coimbatore.
