TOI puts its stamp on history

A commemorative stamp to mark 175 years of The Times of India was released by President Pranab Mukherjee on Wednesday.

Congratulating the newspaper for choosing its iconic common man for the stamp, Mukherjee said that TOI was "truly representative of India's aspirations and ambitions". He referred to Times Group MD Vineet Jain's (right) words that TOI had "no political master and no hidden agenda", and said this should be "the motto of this great institution".

Communications and law minister Kapil Siballauded TOI for its fearlessness in criticizing the government of the day on issues that hurt the interests of the aam admi. TOI "has become verily the nation's conscience-keeper, its blueprint designer, its trumpeter, its critical voice and a flag bearer for Indian journalism," Sibal said.
