Times of the Hindustan

I don't normally spend time pointing out trivial mistakes in English usage of the kind we see in our press every day (it would be a never-ending and pointless exercise). But what I saw today in the Hindustan Times today really got to me. It's a "correction" in a box and it reads as follows:


Correction: "200 flights were cancelled across the north India" should have read "200 flights were cancelled across the northern India".


Yes! Standards of the English are declining in the India!

Happy the New Year!!
