American Researcher explores the life and times of 'the father of the Indian newspaper'

Kolkata, Jul22(UNI) Had it not been for a failed business venture and debts that got James Augustus Hicky incarcerated, 'the father of the Indian newspaper' wouldn't have thought of publishing Bengal Gazette, also the first English newspaper.
These and many more interesting revelations are made by Andrew Otis, a former Fulbright Fellow, in his book 'Hicky's Bengal Gazette: The Untold Story of India's First Newspaper' that traces the journey of the first 'printed newspaper of Asia' from its conception to its final days.
Talking to an audience at the American Centre, Kolkata, recently, Otis said,"James Hickey was bankrupt and needed something that could rescue him from the situation. This is when he decided to utilise the experience he had earned working as an apprentice at the age of 13 at a printing press."
