The news and current affairs magazine Day After published and edited by Sunil Dang completed twenty years of existence yesterday on 17th July 2005.
Late Rajiv Gandhi launched Day After 20 years back on 17th July 1985 when he was the Prime Minister. Day After started as a monthly and was priced at Rs. 5 at its launch.
Speaking to exchange4media, Sunil Dang the Publisher and Editor-in-Chief of Day After nostalgically describes it as a “ Journey in Journalism” and further shared “ Day After has played an important role in expression of freedom and upholding journalistic values.”
