Haindava Keralam - Vaak, A Newspaper in Sanskrit.

  • tags: no_tag

    • More than three decades ago, when Buddha Dev Sharma was young and nervous about English, he subscribed to a newspaper in English to overcome his fears and learn the new language. Today Buddha Dev Sharma writes, edits and publishes Vaak, Uttarakhand’s only Sanskrit newspaper.
    • In the four color pages in each edition, the fortnightly newspaper touches upon current affairs, a crossword puzzle and a column for general knowledge questions, the newspaper’s most popular section. The range of news is contemporary–the Copenhagen summit on climate change, political leadership changes in the Congress and the Bharatiya Janata Party, and the updates on Indian Premier League cricket matches.
    • Sanskrit News paper-Sudharma
      Good news indeed. There is another daily news paper sudharma, which is published from Mysore. This paper is being published for more than 25 years. Though it is a single sheet, it covers the topics and also the readers contributions. They have a online edition.
