In this post, I’ll introduce you to a couple of web resources that help you to catch up with the news in Sanskrit, free of cost, everyday.
All India Radio
Since the 1980s, Indians are addicted to two things - the television and the radio, or more precisely, Doordarshan and Akashavani, as they were then called. If you think you are missing those good old times, here’s some solace. The AIR has been broadcasting news in several languages everyday.

I use Google Reader which neatly streams the MP3 right inside the browser. If you choose to listen regularly, just register your name on this link. Of course, I am the 18-th on the list ! You can find all previous archives and the news transcripts at Sanskrit Documents
Sudharma – World’s only Sanskrit Newspaper
Sudharma was started in 1970 by a Mysorean, Varadaraja Iyengar. As such, you’ll find a lot of local news, in and around Bangalore. This newspaper is struggling for its existence. The least you can do is to spread awareness about this to your friends. You can subscribe to its RSS feeds on FeedBurner
