Inaugurating the 90th anniversary celebrations of Mathrubhumi newspaper, he said the Malayalam daily was an example of such journalism in the country that the people have trusted it for so long.

"We live in times of great turmoil, which is continuously reported to us in great details by the media. Unlike in the past, the media too sometimes contributes to making news. This is particularly true of social media, which is playing an ever-increasing role in our lives,” he said.

"The internet has telescoped events to a degree unheard of in human history. However, the relatively static medium of print retains a special relevance because it can be more credible and better informed," Singh said.
