Today in History: Times of India founded (1838)

John RobsonResident Historian
 

The anniversary of the founding of the Times of India, the largest-selling English daily newspaper in the world and one of the best, reminds us of how fundamentally Western civilization has transformed the world. 

Even to fight “imperialism” you need stinging newspaper editorials and columns, meaning you’ve adopted the very Western institutions and habits you profess to shun.

Better to adopt them, adapt them and do them well.
