Urdu Journalism finds its traces in the depths of history. Many profound writers who went on to work in films had their roots in journalism. One case in point is K A Abbas who had a column called ‘Last Page’, and holds the distinction of being one of the longest-running columns in the history of Indian journalism. The column began in 1935, in Bombay Chronicle, and moved to the Blitz after the Chronicle’s closure.
