My Op-Ed in Mail Today: Our Voice


My article, Our Voice in Our History, published in the Aug 2008 edition of Pragati was printed in Mail Today.

Their editor sensationalized the title of the article to, We don’t quite get it, the first globalized civilization was in India which demonstrated that the person who did not quite get it was the copy writer who came with the title. In the article I make no claims that India was the first globalized civilization. The article was not about proving it either but about the need for more voices in Indic studies. As it stands now there is disconnect between the title of the article and contents.

Now, back to the break.

    Now you know why copywriters are called hacks. :-)

    JK: Forget the disconnect…

    It is important that it was published and thus got a wider audience…

    Well done.

    Agree with Shantanu’s comment, because of the heading your article/blog got a wider audience, at least by a size of 1- thats me :-)
    What a wonderful blog, you have been subscribed.
