Not only is The Musalman written by hand—at a time when printed newspapers are dying like sick lepers—it’s produced by a team of only four scribes. And it’s not just handwritten—it’s transcribed in calligraphy. These people work. Hard.
The Musalman has been operating in India since 1927, and has never had an employee quit—the only reason they leave the paper is because they’re dead. That is what you might call dedication—four Urdu calligraphers in an 800 square foot room, cranking out newspapers for very little pay. Do not expect an iPad edition.
