Today’s ‘Madras Courier’ picks and choses controversial writings and writers from all over the world, India in particular.
Some of the writings and writers picked by this digital publication of today, challenge India’s spiritual history and publishes them periodically.
Out of curiosity, I visited an online version of today’s ‘Madras Courier’, read some articles and writers who are given space there.
I get the uneasy feeling that the online version of ‘Madras Courier’ has some hidden agenda behind it. I cannot figure out who is funding or supporting today’s ‘Madras Courier’.
To give some historical perspective, during the British rule in India, there was ‘The Madras Courier’, which was the first newspaper to be published in Madras, Madras Presidency, of British India. It was a leading newspaper of its time and was the officially recognized newspaper for printing Government notifications. It first appeared in the English language on 12 October 1785. It was started by Richard Johnston. Hugh Boyd was its first Editor.
Here are few samples (with hyperlinks) to some of the publications of today’s ‘Madras Courier’
‘Madras Courier’ reporters also go around India interviewing recognised/known intellectuals like Sadhguru Vasudev, Gurudev Sri Ravi Shankar, a few others too, who can speak english language and also have own views on spiritual history of India with a view to engage them, debate with them, episodes/passages (picked selectively by the reporters,) from printed versions of Ramayana, Mahabharata, Bhagavadgita” when these spiritual gurus visit schools/colleges or hold audience with young people.
Some of these spiritual gurus like to remove government control over hindu temples. See one video where Sadhguru Vasudev speaks his mind on it.
If my readers in this forum have any views/inputs on today’s ‘Madras Courier’ please comment.
