Press Strong Medicine

Press: Strong Medicine T R Andhyarujina The Law of Press Censorship in India by Soli J Sorabjee N M Tripathy "THERE was no pre-censorship of the Press on any of the previous three occasions when the country was engaged in actual war with its hostile neighbours. Not unnaturally, the events of June 26, 1975, and in particular the pre-censorship imposed on the Press were a shattering experience, somewhat like the after-effects of a strong dose of medicine." The author of this hook obviously recovered from the aftereffects of the strong medicine not only to cross swords in two legal bat'les the Censor in the Bombay High Cert but also later to write this eminently useful and informative book on the Law of Press Censorship in India.
