COIMBATORE:The New Indian Express-Dinamani offices marked and celebrated the silver jubilee of their Coimbatore editions. Twenty-five years ago, on a pleasant morning of Wednesday, October 31, 1990, the 13th and fourth editions respectively of the two dailies had been inaugurated by  Chairman of the Express group, Manoj Kumar Sonthalia, in the presence of the late Pollachi N Mahalingam, former Resident Editor K V Ramanathan among others.

For Saturday’s event, S Krishnan, Managing Director, Sri Krishna Sweets, M N Sudhan Appadurai, Director, Sudhan Publications, K Vaidyanathan, Editor, Dinamani and Lakshmi Menon, Senior Vice President (Sales), Express group, were the guests of honour.

Speaking about his association with the Express group, Krishnan said, “I have great respect for this organisation as it publishes reports rooted in our culture and its publications are taking our culture forward.” “It is a matter of pride for me to be associated with this organisation,” said Vaidyanathan, adding, “Dinamani has been publishing reports and articles that promote art, literature and language”.

The day began with a veena recital by Satya Anandhan, music teacher at Thulasi Music Academy. She was assisted by Eashwaran on the mridangam.

Students of SBOA Matriculation HSS rendered classical compositions. B Krithika, a student of Suburban Matriculation HSS, performed a Bharatanatyam recital. Agents were also felicitated.

Siva Subramaniam, an agent from the Koduvai region, who has been in the business for 63 years, said his association with newspapers started with the Express group. Before the press was opened in Coimbatore, The New Indian Express and Dinamani  editions were printed out of Madurai. But the Express group, formed in 1930, has always had readers for its publications in Erode and Coimbatore, as the first issue of Dinamani’s Coimbatore edition pointed out at the time to its readers.
