With 25 letters in his name, the new Editor of ‘Mint’ gives an old warhorse some competition, but in vain

The business newspaper Mint has a new Editor: Sruthijith K.K..

The former Media Nama, Huff Post, Economic Times journalist replaces Vinay Kamat at the helm.

The new Editor’s full Aadhaar-PAN Card-passport name appears in the paper’s imprintline today, just as Vinay’s did as Vaman Vassudev Kamat.

At 25 letters, “Sruthijith Kurupichankandy” is arguably the longest name in Indian journalism today, but a full 22 letters short of “Nammudi Vellasithan Sinnaiah Senthil Chengalvarayan” of ex-CNBC-TV18

Mint is big on data visualisation, and if the paper were to show the difference, would this be a good starting point?
