Indian Express editorial from August 19, 1942

In which the newspaper's founder "indicated unambiguously that the newspaper was on the side of Gandhi’s nationalists, even if this meant that it had to shut down operations in defiance of the gag orders." Pretty stirring stuff. Read it here.

As the country celebrates the sixtieth anniversary as an independent entity, the Indian Express is highlighting some of its proud moments. The blank editorial on June 28, 1975 -- three days after Indira Gandhi imposed Emergency -- marks a major milestone in Indian journalism. Check out the image on this page.
