Vaak – the Sanskrit Fortnightly Newspaper in Uttarakhand

Publishing a Sanskrit Newspaper is never easy when considering the financial part. But still there are people who publish Sanskrit daily newspaper, fortnightlies and magazines. One such Sanskrit Fortnightly in India is Vaak published by Buddha Dev Sharma from Haridwar in Uttarakhand with more than 1,600 subscribers.

Pallavi Singh writes in livemint.com about Vaak

In the four colour pages in each edition, the fortnightly newspaper touches upon current affairs, a crossword puzzle and a column for general knowledge questions, the newspaper’s most popular section. The range of news is contemporary

The first issue of Vaak came out in April 2002 and sold 500 copies. It was an eight-page issue and till a few hours before the launch, Sharma was making pages. He still does the same: he is the editor, desk, writer and publisher. “For more people, you need money. Who does it free of cost?”
