1 Sevanti Ninan
Headlines from the Heartland: Reinventing the Hindi Public Sphere
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2007; 0761935800 / 9780761935803; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
In the 1990s, a newspaper revolution began blowing across northern and central India. When literacy levels rose, communications expanded, and purchasing power climbed in these Hindi-speaking states, newspapers followed—picking up readers in small towns and villages. Even while these newspapers surged to the top of national readership charts, they localised furiously in the race for readers. But in this universe of local news, questions arose about what localisation was doing to regional identity and consciousness. Using notes from her pioneering field-study in eight states, Sevanti Ninan brilliantly brings alive India’s ongoing Hindi newspaper revolution, and its impact on politics, administration and society. Set against the socio-economic and political changes in the countryside, it is a remarkable story of how journalism flowered in unexpected and unorthodox ways, and colourful media marketing unfurled in the Hindi heartland.

2 Sevanti Ninan & Subarno Chattarji (Eds)
The Hoot Reader: Media Practice in Twenty-first Century India
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2013; 019808918X / 9780198089186; Softcover; New; 
The Hoot has held a mirror to the way journalists have practiced their craft in India. Known for flagging uncomfortable truths and raising hard-hitting questions, the site examines ways in which Indian media does (or does not) fulfil its mandate of strengthening public debate, and of providing a voice to the powerless and marginalized. The Hoot Reader archives some of the best critiques of journalism written over the past decade on topics ranging from media ethics to questions of objectivity, bias, and the implications of corporate ownership. Highlighting the Indian media`s immense political and ideological influence over our lives, this collection discusses how national issues such as communal violence, elections, terrorism, the judiciary, and corruption are shaped by it. In reporting how the media covers India, it reports on the complexity and promise of India itself. Meticulously ed and thematically organized, this oeuvre of deeply engaging, informative, and analytical pieces will serve as an eye-opener for all those who are curious and anxious about the role and future of media in this country.
