Letters to the Editor
Sir, My Principal at the National College, Tiruchi, in the mid-1950s, narrated an episode about The Hindu's reporting style. An election verdict had gone in favour of V.V. Giri, who was contesting against the powerful Raja of Bobbili.
Giri representing the Congress was allotted a yellow box while the Raja, representing the Justice Party, was given a red one. All scope of communicating with the electorate to seek its support had been restrained.
The Hindu, in its inimitable style, reported: "The electorate went to the booths yellow in their hearts and red on their lips."

Sir, For over a century, <243>The Hindu has rendered wonderful service to the public. The present generation does not know enough about our freedom fighters. I request that the editorials of the freedom struggle era be published.
G. Rajesh Gopal,

Sir, With most of my years in service spent in the north, I did not have the privilege of reading <243>The Hindu. My ambition was fulfilled when I settled down in Chennai in 1989. The column on spiritual discourses, the editorials, the crossword, Know Your English and Young World have filled my time since then.

Sir, Before switching to <243>The Hindu, I used to read Malayalam papers. I wish I had started reading it earlier.

Sir, On the occasion of the 125th anniversary of your paper I wish you had re-introduced the weekly Saturday Sports Special and the fortnightly Folio supplements.
