Lessons In Journalism
Viva Books Private Limited, Jan 1, 2007 - 270 pages
The story of Pothan Joseph is the story of India s nationalist press and the historic role it played before today s apolitical corporate pop-press took over. Joseph s daily column Over a Cup of Tea was legendary. He gave solid grounding to three major dailies Hindustan Times, The Indian Express and Deccan Herald. He was also the first to demand that journalism be recognized as a learned calling. He paid heavily for taking that position.Joseph s extraordinary career highlights the importance of professionalism, scholarship, and basic values. These are lessons here that override present-day commercialism, for neither commodification nor the internet can invalidate journalism s basic values. That is what makes this biography relevant to today s journalists and students alike.
