New Delhi: Sweden’s King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia arrived in India Monday on a five-day visit. The royal couple were received by President Ram Nath Kovind at the Rashtrapati Bhavan and later met with PM Narendra Modi at Hyderabad House.
King Gustaf, who is on his third visit to India, is also scheduled to visit Mumbai and Uttarakhand with his wife.
They arrived in a direct commercial Air India flight from Stockholm to New Delhi after their aircraft developed a technical snag at the last minute.
India needs free, fair, non-hyphenated and questioning journalism even more as it faces multiple crises.
But the news media is in a crisis of its own. There have been brutal layoffs and pay-cuts. The best of journalism is shrinking, yielding to crude prime-time spectacle.
ThePrint has the finest young reporters, columnists and editors working for it. Sustaining journalism of this quality needs smart and thinking people like you to pay for it. Whether you live in India or overseas, you can do it here.
