Dear Reader,
Your comment on the article ' Human Perspective' is now live on timesofindia.indiatimes.com/readersblog.
excellent article. my father was born during 1890\'s and left us in 1979. his first daughter was born during 1920\'s i delayed my arrival till 1944 allowing two more sisters to precede at different intervals. i\'ve heard from my dad about many of the developments during the first half of last century. i myself am witness to the happenings from 1950\'s. my perception is that communication from one generation to the next is one of the casualties of modern development. articles like this will at least remind us not to forget history and formulate our thoughts based on past experiences. we need to remember history and the way we have traversed to reach here. sure. this will also pass. thanks for this article.'

B. MUST READ: ‘Shankar’s Weekly’ final editorial – IJR

Shankar's Weekly said bye and disappeared calling it a day after active presence in the Indian mainstream media for some 25 years. Though the closure followed declaration of Emergency in June 1975, there were other reasons (of course, which were related to the Emergency) which were "sacrificial" in nature. Later, who knew Shankara Pillai speculated in the media about those reasons, but Shankar's Weekly and its owner kept them a closely guarded secret. We know for sure, an editor, like the proverbial captain of a sinking ship, was protecting his team from insult, injury and embarrassment in a situation where civil rights were in suspended animation!
As a parting gift, a Souvenir including select cartoons and articles published in Shankar's Weekly during the quarter century of its existence, was also published during 1975.
