When I was younger, "The Hindu" was my source for correct English and proper usage. I freely admit that what I have learned from your esteemed paper in the last forty years is far more than I have learned in school and college.
But I am deeply shocked, pained, grieved and hurt to find more and more errors daily creeping into your esteemed daily, more so in the supplementary section, which is prepared in advance, and where better proof-reading and rectification is highly feasible, since the deadline is farther off. I am referring to errors of spelling, misprints, and howlers galore, which appear almost daily, sometimes even in headlines (Such as your headline "JAYALALITHA GARLANDS STATUTES" just after Madam became Chief Minister).
Today, the contents of your weekly column "Know your English" tempt me to suggest that the blurb be changed to "IMPERFECT" and I am forced to say "NO" to your English. The column starts with a reference to a cake; this could have been developed on Christ
