"There are not many books in India that can serve as useful guides to the practicing journalist. Nor are there adequate textbooks on professional journalism that meet the exact requirements of the Indian students. It is this lacuna that M.V. Kamath one of the most prominent Indian Journalists, has tried to fill. This is a book on Indian Journalism for Indian Journalists citing examples of Indian writers, Kamath quotes profusely from the writings, Kamath quotes profusely from the writings of Indian editors to illustrate his ideas which considerably adds to the relevance of his work. The author has devoted a special chapter to English grammar; ignorance of which he says is becoming increasingly noticeable. He has much to say about Indianism a phenomenon of recent origin. Is there such a thing as Indian English? How should this be viewed in the context of contemporary Indian journalism? This book sets out to provide some answers, Kamath also drew upon his varied experience as a foreign correspondent to outline some of the problems he had to face in that capacity and how he solved them."
