The Hindu

The Hindu is an Indian English language newspaper published weekly since 1878 and daily since 1889. It has grown steadily to the current circulation of more than 850,000 copies and a readership of over 3 million, both in India and abroad.

The Hindu enjoys considerable popularity, especially in South India, for its traditionally moderate and independent editorial stand and for its reliable and balanced presentation of the news, with a positive attitude that shuns sensationalism.

The Hindu uses modern facilities for news gathering, page composition and printing. It is printed in eight centres apart from the Main Edition at Chennai (Madras) where the Corporate Office is based. The printing centres at Coimbatore, Bangalore, Madurai, Hyderabad, New Delhi, Vizag, Thiruvananthapuram, Kochi, Vijayawada and Mangalore are connected with high speed data lines for news transmission across the country.

The Hindu is the only newspaper which brings out supplements on all days of the week.

Popular Columns include This day that year, Art Buchwald and Religion.
