We Deliver Karnataka Like No One Else
“Every day Deccan Herald touches the lives of the people of Karnataka. Today the daily shapes the opinions and directs their actions.”
Deccan Herald was born 54 years ago when the first edition hit the streets on June 16, 1948. The newspaper was a reflection of the optimism, and a voice of the aspirations of a newly independent nation.
Proud of its regional moorings and responsive to global changes, Deccan Herald is Karnataka's guide to the times we live in. Karnataka and Bangalore hold a special place in the newspaper's scheme of things, but its coverage of national and world happenings is equally comprehensive and analytical. Deccan Herald is also the voice of the poor and the underprivileged. On its agenda is a relentless campaign against corruption and advocacy of pro-environment economic development.
Karnataka with its rich cultural and historical legacy has always encouraged us to present content to our reader which is close to their heart. Covering a diverse set of genres from politics to sports to daily life to entertainment we ensure we always have something for everyone to read and enjoy. To continue that legacy here is a fun quiz to help you check your understanding of you state Karnataka.
