This Republic Day, Mathrubhumi, a Malayalam daily, had a surprise for its readers. The newspaper, which played a prominent role in the country’s freedom struggle, wished its readers with a jasmine-scented print. This is the first such attempt in Kerala.
It was an apt Republic Day gift to the readers by a newspaper. Even the master head of the newspaper announcing the innovation – a jasmine plant twining Mathrubhumi with the Republic Day message just below it was a novelty.
For the day, it was the talking point among newspaper readers in the state.
