Letters to the Editor
Sir, I have been subscribing to The Hindu since 1947. Even in those days, there prevailed an opinion that on any matter, however important, The Hindu would take its own time to offer its considered views.
L. Ramaswamy Naicker,
Sir, The Hindu missed reporting the 1976 French Open, which I pointed out as a 20-year-old sports buff. I was pleasantly surprised to receive a personal letter from the Editor reassuring me that such slips would not recur.
Sir, The journalist, M.V. Kamath, said in his book, "Professional journalism," that
The Hindu's reporters could listen to a major speech and reproduce it verbatim. When Nehru toured south India, he asked for the services of A.K. Venkatesa Aiyar, who excelled in verbatim reporting, however fast, confusing and repetitive the speech.
