Celebrating 60 : A paper trail of Free India’s journey from birth to super powerdom

The Indian economy, after 60 years of Independence, has reached a position from where it can spread its wings and fly towards a path that would take the country to be at par with other developed nations. Several reports backed by research have said that India could well be a super power by 2050, and today, according to the latest ratings, India is the fastest growing economy after China. Indian newspapers have already begun work on showcasing Independent India’s journey from the early days of its birth to its 60th anniversary.

The Bhaskar Group that owns newspapers like Dainik Bhaskar, Divya Bhaskar and DNA, has published a 144-page book titled ‘Bharat Kal Aaj Aur Kal’. The book, which is priced at Rs 25, covers India’s historic moments and experts’ views on the future prospects of India. Apart from this, the Group is currently carrying a section called ‘Tejaswi Bharat’ across all its publications. As the name suggests, the section reflects ‘Divine India’, and touches upon areas like infrastructure, the power of the youth, communication revolution, sports, etc. In an attempt to elicit responses from the citizens, the Group will conduct a poll on the Zee and the Bhaskar portals.

Similarly, The Express Group and Hindustan Times have also come up with special content for their readers. The Indian Express Group, in its content for the Independence Day, will cover reasons on why India will be a super power, and celebrate this special day by commemorating a dedicated glazed supplement with hibrite inside pages. The supplement will go with all editions of the Indian Express and Financial Express. It will cover experts’ column, insightful stories, essays, reportage and articles across the country from various streams. The content among all newspapers of the Group include 60 reasons on why India will be a super power; and 60 Indians who have changed the destiny of India's economy.

Hindustan Times, too, has already showcased special content on a solely dedicated page titled India @ 60. The exclusive content for this special day was first delivered on August 9, and such content is expected to be delivered till August 15. The newspaper has talked about 60 innovations, 60 successful people; and 60 events that have been instrumental in taking India to a momentous position from where it can make a mark globally.

While a Times Group spokesperson refused to divulge any plans for Independence Day, a Mid-Day official said that there will be no special issue for the Independence Day, but will surely have some editorial content based on it.
