With The Hindu's owners deciding to revert to being a family run and edited newspaper, I am resigning from The Hindu with immediate effect.

And with that, the editor of India’s The Hindu newspaper appears to have quit Monday morning, or at least announced he was doing so to his 60,418 followers. Siddharth Varadarajan spoke here in 2012 about what he hoped to do at The Hindu.
According to a 2011 piece in the Wall Street Journal by Tripti Lahiri, The Hindu was in the midst of a family feud around the time Varadarajan was named editor.
Varadarajan’s resignation, if truly given over Twitter, is certainly notable, but doesn’t quite beat Marina Shifrin’s interpretive dance notice to Next Media Animation.
