    Times of India and Indiatiems are the worst sites for news
    their gimmicks are immature and irresponsible
    there was a time when a news report on some english celebrity's phone bills going up cos of phone sx that made it to teh front page headlines in bold
    and their "whatever" brand is so stupid I wonder who is dumb enuf to buy that

    ^madhura, that was amazing. Please convey my kudos to the guy who wrote it if you could. I only wish i could get my point across half as well as he did most of the times.

    Have you ever wondered which hurts the most: saying something and wishing you had not, or saying nothing, and wishing you had?

    Well.. well.. i dont know regarding Web Editions of TOI...
    But i like my local flavour published from Ahmedabad... it rocks!
    Similarly... i had read TOI's Pune, Mumbai & Delhi editions.. and they too rocked! What surprised me in all these cities is the price.... 56-70pages for only 2bucks!
    Thats rock bottom price!
    Though i must say.. 'The Hindu' had a better coverage in Delhi than TOI...
    But watever is said... TOI fits my taste and starts my day!

    Hehehe.. hope i am not partial ! But i have read different english dailies and TOI is better in many aspects! Earlier i use to read Indian Express...but they werent impressive!

    The Indian Express is without question the finest newspaper in the country. It's the only paper with balls that goes out and cusses out the establishment, regardless of who runs it, left right or centre.The Times of India is trash. Their obsession with brand building has led to them losing sight of the point of the exercise. News.

    print edition is slightly better... but then madhura u gotta think about this.. when u were in india, and were not exposed to the other sites and papers.. u had nothing else to compare TOI with.. and u thought the same set of headlines were news back then. i dont think it has changed that much.. pakistan bashing,fixation on cricket,bollywood,religious politics, and desi ***ual taboos... i think times of india and other papers in india are still covering the same news as 10 15 years ago.
