All-out-war: The Hindu trolls Times of India.

Times of India and The Hindu newspaper are fighting out a fierce battle to attain leadership position in Mumbai (currently TOI rules the roost).

This ad below is from the Matrimony Section of Mumbai Mirror edition of 7th June, 2015, page no. 39. Mumbai Mirror is published by Times of India in Mumbai.

Here, The Hindu  trolled TOI by placing an ad in TOI's MumbaiMirror's Matrimonial classifieds.

Well, The Hindu claims that they were not involved in this and maybe one of their loyal readers could have done it ;) . But this trolling act has become a sensation over social media since it got published. There were earlier instances where The Hindu had openly trolled TOI in their advertisements. This has been a discussion point in various MBA classes too. Here is one such video of trolling. Please watch and share your thoughts on who will win this war :) .
