India Today - July 13, 2014
It is part of the India Today group, also founded in 1975, which now includes 13 magazines, 3 radio stations, 4 TV channels, 1 newspaper, a classical music label (Music Today), book publishing, and India's only book club. With the publication of its 30th Anniversary issue in December 2005, the magazine, which had commenced publication in 1975 with a circulation of 5,000 copies, has published five editions and currently has a circulation of over 1.1 million copies with a readership of over 5.62 million.
The Cover Story, The Monk in the Middle, takes a close look at the Dalai Lama, who has mellowed over the years and is now making overtures to Beijing even as China seems to be hardening its stand. In light of this, Modi’s India has to play a fine balance between the spiritual giant and its desire to bring warmth to India-China ties.
The Big Story, "Army spooks under the scanner", looks at how the procurement of sensitive spying equipment was put on hold after an army probe issued arrest warrants for two generals after discrepancies were discovered in a deal with a private firm.
In his column National Interest, Shekhar Gupta writes on life, mind and times of Lalit Modi and how Modi has refused to accept the reality that politicians hang together in the BCCI and they always win.
The issue also carries a report on the Dholpur Palace ownership dispute case against Vasundhara Raje and son Dushyant Singh and the controversy surrounding Lalit Modi's investment in the property.
In the Books section, Kaveree Bamzai reviews the new book by former RAW chief A.S. Dulat who wrote that the release of three wanted terrorists in Kandahar marked yet another low point in the blood-spattered recent history of Kashmir.
The issue also comes with a free magazine Simply Punjabi.
