Highlights of India Today – 19th August 2019 issue:
The August 19, 2019 issue of India Today magazine seeks to enlighten us with the possible outcome of scrapping Article 370. With the Modi government diluting the article to strip Kashmir of its special status and bifurcating J&K into two union territories, will the situation heal or would get worse? With many opposing the move, there are few who believe that an insight can be drawn only after the impact shows on those living in the region.
The new magazine issue focuses majorly on patriotism and what it means for the common masses. Is patriotism equivalent to nationalism? Does it mean differently for people belonging to different professions? Paatriotism has been looked at from the perspective of politics, films, cricket, the military, of marketing and of history.
The issue also features Q&A with the famous Bollywood villain and actor, Gulshan Grover.
Other major highlights are Obituary: Sushma Swaraj's crucial role in building the BJP, WB CM Mamata Banerjee's attempt to re-name West Bengal and implication of passing the UAPA Bill.
