    • All the best to the team. The Hindu has always been an example of mature and responsible journalism and now with the start of 'The Hindu Centre for Politics and Public Policy' it establishes a platform for a more responsible journalism. Thanks to The Hindu group for providing this space, away from sensationalism and close to the facts and realities of the real world.
