Though she took the charge on February 1, 2015, Malini Parthasarathy has resigned before she completed a year, owing to differences with the company board. She has worked at The Hindu in varying capacities for years and in recent months she also strengthened the paper’s editorial capabilities. She is one of the shareholders of the Kasturi and Sons Ltd. She succeeded Siddhartha Varadarajan who was editor till 2011. After Varadarajan departed from the newpaper, the publication also saw the exit of well known journalist such as editor for rural affairs P. Sainath, and national security specialist Praveen Swami. As per the sources, chances are that Suresh Nambath, national editor at The Hindu can be the interim editor of the newspaper.
