The Hindu’s coverage on Bofors scandal is featured as one the “50 Great Stories” produced by Columbia Journalism School (CJS) alumni in the past 100 years.

The compilation, part of centenary celebrations of the CJS, features “stories reported, investigated, written, produced, filmed, edited, photographed, anchored, and/or tweeted by Columbia journalists,” said a CJS release.

“N. Ram, former editor-in-chief of The Hindu, was instrumental in breaking the Bofors scandal, a bombshell story about corruption in military spending that brought down Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi and changed the course of Indian politics,” said the CJS website.

Mr. Ram completed his masters in comparative journalism from CJS.

The Hindu exposed the multi-crore Bofors scandal in 1989.
