Why newspapers publish what they do

Opinions differ on what comprises news and what does not. As a result, different people have different views on whether certain items should have been carried by a newspaper or not.

S

AKSHAYE Khanna’s role in Bollywood’s latest super-hit, Dil Chahta Hai has revived the debate among Indian feminist organisations on the perpetuation of female stereotypes on the Hindi screen.
