Description

Ramnath Geonka was not the founder of the Indian Express. But he was overwhelmingly the Father of the Express. With that pithy summing up, TJS George analyses the vision and the drama behind India’s most extraordinary newspaper chain. It can Goenka’s Personality that made Express part of the country’s history and that personality is brought out vividly in his correspondence.

Goenka was into everything-aluminium, banking, cement, chemicals, steel, tea, politics, religion and of course newspapers. And he was into fighting. His fights, especially after India Gandhi became Prime Minister, were the stuff of legend. How did he keep so many balls in the air at the same time? There is no answer to that question but the 135 letters presented in these pages bear witness to the feat. This is contemporary history crisply told.
