Highlights of India Today 20th August 2018, issue:
This week's issue is all about 71 years of India’s Independence. From freedom to drink to freedom of choice, the cover package consists of 19 essays that show how freedom can be complicated.
The Nation story – Hell Comes Home – talks about how a seedy nexus - involving a Muzaffarpur strongman, the state police, district officials and a minister's spouse - flourished on CM Nitish Kumar's watch.
This week's issue carries forward India Today’s Save the Taj Campaign and looks at the mystery behind its brown tint in the story Mystery of the Brown Taj. While experts are clueless as to why a sickly tint is spreading all over the iconic monument, policymakers are asking if the Taj was really all that white.
With the death of DMK patriarch M Karunanidhi earlier this week, the story – A Towering Torchbearer - looks at how the passing of the iconic leader has marked the end of the first generation of post-Independence leaders in Dravidian politics.
The issue comes with two free magazines: Simply Delhi, and Simply Mumbai.
