The New Indian Express has been admired and envied for its credibility, its fierce independence and its staunch refusal to cringe before the powers that be. When Emergency that Indira Gandhi imposed on the night of June 25, 1975, saw the fundamental rights of citizens suspended and censorship imposed on newspapers, the Express was one of the few newspapers to defy the government orders. On the night the Emergency was imposed, the paper carried a blank edit page to show its defiance of authority. In the years since, the newspaper has proudly carried that tradition forward.
