Tehelka – the people’s paper – India

Comment first! »

Linked with our presentation of Tarun Tejpal – India.

And linked with our presentation of For whom the bell tolls.

Tarun Tejpal says: “we, at Tehelka, will carry on our sting operations”. (See an Interview on this Hindustan Times page).

Excerpt: … Tejpal, 38, created Tehelka on a shoestring a year ago with his brother and a journalist colleague, Aniruddha Bahal. Many ordinary Indians, judging from the crowds at Tejpal’s public speeches, regard him as a champion. Tejpal believes he has helped his much maligned profession in India. “The explosion of consumerism since economic liberalization in 1991 created a journalism of public relations,” he complains.

That’s changing. Ever since the bribery scandal, Tehelka has been awash in resumes from journalists, and receives scandal tips daily. Besides the resignations, the defense expose prompted New Delhi to adopt new procurement rules. A Punjab University economics graduate and veteran newspaperman, Tejpal has recruited some of India’s best political columnists. Author V.S. Naipaul is on its board. Says Vinod Mehta, editor of the newsweekly Outlook, where Tejpal once worked: “Tehelka has been an earthquake in Indian politics.”

Finances are a problem, though. The Web site spends $85,000 a month on overhead and staff, but takes in only $8,000 a month in advertising. The defense expose was cut off when Tehelka, after handing over $23,000 to politicians, ran out of money. “So we just went public with the story,” Tejpal says. But in February, broadcaster Zee Telefilms expressed interest in buying a stake. Also, Tejpal is raising money from Indians in the U.S.
