FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

Q1. How is India Connected with the Print Culture?

Ans. India is enriched with the old tradition of handwritten manuscripts. These manuscripts were written on the palm leaves or paper made by hands. The first printing press was established in Goa by the Portuguese missionaries. The first book printed in India was a Tamil book printed by Catholic priests in the year 1579 in Cochin. With the advent of British East India Company, print culture expanded in many areas in India. Various magazines were also printed in India promoting the ideas of social reforms. Presently, a good number of newspapers, books, magazines and other such printed sources are printed in India. Printing machines are set up commercially and there has been a boost in the percentage of printed resources that reach the population of the country.

Q2. What is the Relationship Between Print and Censorship?

Ans. British East India Company was not so much concerned about censorship. Certain laws were enacted by the Calcutta Supreme Court to restrict the freedom of the press. The press laws were promised to be revised by Lord Bentinck in the year 1835. New regulations were designed by Thomas Macaulay. The most hated law regarding freedom of the press was known as the Vernacular Press Act in 1878. Vernacular newspapers were tracked by the government. At that time nationalist newspapers were developed in most of the parts of the country.
