Siddharth Varadarajan, Editor, The Hindu has put in his papers due to a row with owner Kasturi & Sons. The resignation comes on the back of the publisher’s decision of moving the English daily back to being a family run newspaper. 

Varadarajan had tweeted, “With The Hindu’s owners deciding to revert to being a family-run and edited newspaper, I am resigning from The Hindu with immediate effect.”
 






















Talking to exchange4media, he said, “It was a wonderful experience working with The Hindu during the one and a half years that I was with the paper. I got to introduce many changes and I hope that the paper continues to grow and prosper as India’s most respected English language newspaper.”

Varadarajan further said that he is returning to Delhi and will take a break of couple of months before deciding on his next destination.

Varadarajan is an Indian-American journalist, editor, and academic. This was his second stint with this organisation. He had first joined The Hindu as Deputy Editor, his second stint started in July 2011 as Editor.
