A brief history of The Asian Age In February 1994, India's global newspaper, The Asian Age, was launched simultaneously from Delhi, Mumbai and London. Today, it has editions in Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata and London. It has come a long way since its inception, and has already established itself within the competitive environment of Indian media as a daily to reckon with. It is, also the only Indian newspaper with an international edition (London).
News is news plus views: We always keep this in mind and cater to not just the why, how, what, when and where of news but we also analyse why something in the news is more than just an incident. We show you what is happening, and the reasons behind it.
As a paper, The Asian Age stands for news. Ever since its inception it has set new standards in unbiased and fearless reporting. The thrust of the paper is as much local as national and international. The Asian Age was one of the first papers in India to publish a daily city/regional supplement extensively covering local news. This practice continues. The Asian Age is India's only paper which has found a perfect blend of national and international news, and the first comment pages in the country, catering to all reader groups.Being a national newspaper, The Asian Age keeps its eyes and ears open to all that is happening in the country today, be it in the power corridors of Delhi or in a border village in Kashmir. International news is another of its strong points. Several readership surveys have cited The Asian Age for the wide spectrum of international news it provides. A recent national survey shows how the readership of the paper has risen phenomenally among the internet savvy and the upwardly mobile.
