“ …with Tehelka, we have crossed a barrier in journalism.
And what journalism ought to be … ” ~ Arundhati Roy

"Tehelka is a delightful Urdu word that refers to the special
kind of tumult provoked by a daring act. Tehelka has
certainly lived up to its name… ” ~ TIME
How often do you find agreement like this between a vocal social critic and a very mainstream American media outlet? I came across this story in The International Herald-Tribune detailing the financial tribulations of Tehelka, an independent weekly published in New Dehli. It is difficult to get news and perspectives from abroad in anything like a reliable manner. So I thought it would be useful to call your attention to this resource.
