India holds the world's largest English-language newspaper market

Pretty astounding, insightful longest of long-reads on the man behind the post-1980s transformation of the news publishing industry in the homeland. Jain's a caricature of an assuming magnate: slight, prone to whimsy, staunchly spiritual and connivingly steely. The twisted puppet-master behind a whorl of drama, and as charismatic as the politicians he so despises. Super interesting.
