Deccan Herald enters the National Capital

The formal launch of Deccan Herald’s Delhi edition took place with a lot of fanfare at an event in the Capital on December 11, 2011.

Speaking on the occasion, Tilak Kumar, Chairman and Joint Managing Director, Deccan Herald, remarked, “It’s coming of age for the newspaper that was launched in Bangalore 60 years ago, which has grown over the decades. He recalled that this was “the first major newspaper launched after independence in the country in 1948, and established itself as the authentic voice of Karnataka”. The Deccan Herald always “stuck to the basic principles of journalism and prided itself on professional excellence; always believed in objective reporting and resisted temptation for sensationalism”, he further said.

Among the prominent personalities present at the launch were: P Chidambaram, Minister for Home Affairs; SM Krishna, External Affairs Minister; Prof KV Thomas, Union Minister of State for Agriculture and Consumer Affairs, Food & Public Distribution; cricketer Anil Kumble; and veteran journalist and syndicated columnist Kuldip Nayar, among others.

With the foray into Delhi, Kumar expressed the fact that “We want to bring the values and experience to Delhi. We know that we will be judged across the highest standards and we know we will measure up to them.” He added, “Delhi is the political capital and the business capital (second to Mumbai), that’s why we are here. We have to earn our colours here.”

It was an important day that they had chosen to enter the Capital. “Today is the 100th anniversary of the shift of the British capital from Calcutta to Delhi, which is very historic. We are also moving from the periphery to the centre. We hope to continue with the sincerity, commitment, ideals that have guided us,” Kumar said.

Kuldip Nayar, who is director on the Deccan Herald board, said, “I am the oldest member on the board and have seen the paper grow from infancy. We hope will be able to put Karnataka on the map. We want to educate, inform and provoke.”

“Congratulations for representing Karnataka in Delhi,” exclaimed Anil Kumble, adding, “Today we look for objectivity and that’s what we get in the Deccan Herald.”

Calling himself a “faithful reader” of this paper, SM Krishna, External Affairs Minister, said, “Deccan Herald has survived severe competition and has succeeded in holding its sway across millions of readers, not only in Karnataka but outside as well.”
