New Delhi, Sep 20: Vice-President Hamid Ansari today relaunched the Frontline magazine at a function here.
He commended the Hindu Group for this initiative aimed at retaining relevance in changing times for a newer readership.
Speaking on the occasion, he said, to him personally, Frontline has always been a stimulant to the mind apart from providing good reading on most matters that he care to spend time on.
He opined that in today’s age, the audio-visual media has emerged as a dominant medium for quenching the thirst of the target audience for real time news on current affairs, culture and entertainment.
“Despite this, there remains a real and popular demand for serious publications on topical issues which cannot be substituted by the ‘breaking news’ culture and short-attention span snippets in the domain of the electronic media,” the Vice-President added.
Former Editor-in Chief of The Hindu and Frontline N Ram said on the 134th anniversary of the founding of The Hindu, the Group has decided to launch ‘The Hindu Centre for Politics and Public Policy’ to encourage research and discussion on critical poitical and public policy issues. (UNI)
