In a conversation with ThePrint’s Editor-in-Chief Shekhar Gupta, senior journalist Coomi Kapoor talks about her new book ‘The Tatas, Freddie Mercury and other Bawas’. Kapoor engages with questions around what it means to be a Parsi and famous Parsis who have brought laurels to the country. Kapoor says Parsis have a strong sense of ethics, hard work and a natural talent for enterprise, which is why they mostly succeed —whether it is the business success of the Tatas and the Mistrys or the current contributions such as the manufacturing of Covid-19 vaccines by the Parsi-founded Serum Institute of India.
Why news media is in crisis & How you can fix it
India needs free, fair, non-hyphenated and questioning journalism even more as it faces multiple crises.
But the news media is in a crisis of its own. There have been brutal layoffs and pay-cuts. The best of journalism is shrinking, yielding to crude prime-time spectacle.
ThePrint has the finest young reporters, columnists and editors working for it. Sustaining journalism of this quality needs smart and thinking people like you to pay for it. Whether you live in India or overseas, you can do it here.
