In the latest edition of ThePrintOTC, author Chetan Bhagat sat down with the ThePrint’s Editor-in-Chief Shekhar Gupta to talk about his upcoming book — 400 Days — and how he tackled the challenge of writing a thriller and mystery novel, the challenges of making people read books today, and why curation of content is the future. Bhagat also spoke passionately against Literature Festivals, explaining why he had a problem with them, and how people who say Chetan Bhagat doesn’t count, make him count.
Why news media is in crisis & How you can fix it
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.
