Sham Lal sets the style, tone and level of intellectual rigour for a publication in the history of newspaper publishing in post-independence India. This book is an anthology of his writings, mostly the op-ed columns he wrote for the paper as editor and during the period when he continued to freelance for the toi and the telegraph of Kolkata. Sham Lals collection of some 100 columns reveals his avid interest in literature and social sciences. The real worth of this book is that a majority of the columns, some written decades ago, still have contemporary resonance.
His forte is clearly the field of arts, literature, painting, poetry, films and social commentary.
And for those who missed out on the Sham Lal years, this book offers a rare opportunity to savour the true intellectual worth and weight of a newspaper editor.
