In this edition of Off The Cuff or #ThePrintOTC, Editor-in-Chief Shekhar Gupta is in conversation with Indian Youth Congress president Srinivas B.V., who has been receiving praise and appreciation for the relief work being carried out by him and his team during the devastating second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The leader says all credit goes to the thousands of IYC workers toiling day and night to help people in their hour of crisis, and that he has just served as a medium through whom people could seek help.
Srinivas also talks about how his cricketing career met with a sudden end due to an injury, why he joined the Congress, and how he rose up the ranks in the party.
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.
