Sanskrit Daily Turns 40
Via The Hindu
Sudharma, perhaps the only Sanskrit daily in the country, completed 40 years of publication here on Sunday. Celebrations were held and many scholars were felicitated on the occasion.
Swami Veereshanandaji Saraswathi of Ramakrishna Vivekananda Ashram, Tumkur, exhorted the people to patronise Sanskrit and complimented Editor of Sudharma K.V. Sampathkumar for striving hard to keep the daily afloat despite the recession and lack of adequate advertisement support.Sudharma, which launched its Internet edition (http://sudharma.epapertoday.com) in the first week of August last year, has increased its readership base significantly. Mr. Sampathkumar said the number of hits during the weekends was very high (between 6,000 and 8,000 a day), while it was relatively low on weekdays. The current annual subscription fee is Rs. 250.
