Sudharma the only Sanskrit Daily Newspaper in the World Turns 40

Started in 1970 by Sanskrit scholar Kalale Nadadur Varadaraja Iyengar, Sudharma is the only Sanskrit Daily Newspaper in the world today. The Sanskrit Newspaper has a daily circulation of about 2,000 copies and is mostly circulated through post and has subscribers around the world especially in Japan and USA. K.V. Sampath Kumar, son of Mr. Iyengar, is the present editor of the daily.

To mark the 40th year, a special anniversary issue was brought out on July 19, 2009.

Published from Mysore, the only income generated by Sudharma is from the 250 rupees of annual subscription fee. It is the determination of K.V. Sampath Kumar and his love for Sanskrit language that is keeping Sudharma afloat.

Selected issues of Sudharma are available online in PDF format. You can read the Sanskrit e-paper and know more about Sudharma from its official website here.
