For periodicals, dailies, magazines...
CHP's writing career began with the FORUM, a political weekly from Bombay, edited by Joachim Alva and Violet Alva. He later wrote for MYSINDIA, the English weekly by Hosali Press, edited by Mr Philip Spratt. He also wrote for DECCAN HERALD for Sunday supplements, chiefly book reviews, and mid-week features for THE INDIAN EXPRESS. While at New Delhi, he contributed to HINDUSTAN TIMES for the Jantar Mantar column, and their evening edition EVENING NEWS when news from Karnataka suggested a topic; and also to its daily column The Capital Eye, an outlet for humour. He also wrote articles for the erstwhile THE MIRROR magazine, and covered the Kannada section under The Literary Scene in India section for THE INDIAN P.E.N. (Poets, Playwrights, Editors, Essayists, Novelists - A World Association of Writers) and book reviews.
His contributions in Kannada include book reviews for the dailies PRAJAVANI & KANNADA PRABHA; and to SUDHA magazine, mainly in the Children's section during the late 1960s.
Only some of CHP's over five decades of available writings are archived in their original published form in PDF, and grouped under respective publications.
