My Discovery of India - Legacy Printing Press

Legacy printing press, Patna

Today, computerization has advanced print media immensely but only a few years ago, it was a mechanical technology. The evolution of the printing press represents one of the biggest advancements for human civilization. Now that old manual printing presses are being replaced by modern digital printing technologies, some of these presses must be preserved for their heritage value and to educate younger generations about the evolution of printing.

What does heritage mean to you?

Your personal slice of heritage could be your family home, or a 200-year-old tree you pass on your way to work. An ancient monument that has withstood the ravages of urbanization. It could be a lake in your town that craves a lease of life. Or a dying tradition, dance or custom that needs a few more takers.

We asked Yahoo! readers via Flickr to share photos of heritage icons that they want to preserve. Submitting a photo to this series is akin to adding your voice to a visual signature campaign -- you endorse the heritage icon and your passion to protect it.

Our editors were pleasantly overwhelmed by the range and breadth of themes and topics that represented heritage to our readers. Titled "My Discovery of India", our theme showcased aspects of heritage that readers want to preserve. Thanks to all of you for your time, enthusiasm and effort in making this showcase a runaway success. Do watch this space, as this gallery will be updated regularly.

  • Charlie Strong's fate at Texas should be sealed after loss to Kansas State

    The Kansas State game ended like so many others have under Texas coach Charlie Strong: frustrating, mistake-riddled and with the Longhorns on the wrong end of the scoreboard. Though Texas had one last gasp for life with a late touchdown, the 24-21 loss felt like it was over long before the final whistle was blown. In a way, it also signaled the end of Strong's tenure at Texas. Texas might not fire Strong on Sunday. It may not fire him next week or the week after. But Saturday's loss all but officially sealed his fate in Austin. There are five games left on the schedule, and Texas needs to win three to be bowl eligible. Frankly, Strong needs to win all five -- including games against No. 9 Baylor

  • Verlander deal? Astros all-in? Why MLB hot stove could be trade-heavy

    There is a growing sense among executives that the trade market is going to be active this offseason fueled by these factors: 1. Arguably the worst free-agent starting-pitching class ever is upon us. Rich Hill is the best starter available. He is a terrific craftsman. He also is 37 in March, has not made it through a full season as a starter since 2007, and no team can simply wave off concerns about blisters because he relies so much on his curveball, which creates intense friction on his fingers against the ball’s seams. And the class goes down-Hill from there. Thus, in the old game of supply-and-demand, if teams have anything from a good-to-great pitcher they are willing to trade, the time

  • NFL Puts Giants’ Josh Brown on Paid Suspension Over Domestic Abuse

    The NFL has put New York Giants kicker Josh Brown on the commissioner’s exempt list as league investigators go through a trove of newly released documents in which the player admitted to abusing his then-wife Molly Brown. On Friday afternoon Adolpho Birch, NFL senior vice president of Labor Policy & League Affairs, sent a letter to Brown informing him that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell had placed him on the except list on a "limited and temporary basis" while the league reviews the documents released by the King County (Washington) Police Department. Brown will be paid his salary "pursuant to the terms" of his contract, and he may appeal the decision within three days of receiving the letter.

  • Gretzky surprised by support from Jets fans heading into Heritage Classic alumni game

    It’s Heritage Classic weekend in the NHL, which means that there will be an alumni game between the Jets and Oilers on Saturday afternoon. The rivalry between these two teams has come down a few notches over the years (mainly because the Jets moved to Phoenix), but that doesn’t diminish how intense it used to be. It was so intense that Wayne Gretzky, who will be dressing for the Oilers alum, was surprised when he was cheered during Friday’s practice at Investors Group Field in Winnipeg. “I was kind of Public Enemy No. 1 back in the day,” Gretzky said, per NHL.com. “But, that is the way it should be. I was with the other team. When I was in Winnipeg, the people were great to me and they always

  • The tragic story of the champion Jewish fencer who fought for Hitler

    She represented Germany at the 1928 Amsterdam Summer Olympics, bringing home a gold medal. Four years later, she competed in the Los Angeles Games. Two hours before her final matches, she learned that her boyfriend had died in a military training accident. She finished fifth. Mayer stayed in California and attended college for international law, hoping to perhaps become a diplomat for her country one day. In 1933, Hitler and the Nazi Party took power in Germany, and quickly set to work stripping away the rights of Jewish citizens — including Mayer, whose father was Jewish. Mayer’s membership in her hometown fencing club was revoked, and it became clear she could not return to Germany. The former

  • Report: When Kings hired George Karl, Rudy Gay greeted him with, ‘Welcome to basketball hell’

    The Kings were 18-34 when they hired George Karl in February 2015. They hadn’t made the playoffs in eight years. Sacramento fired coach Michael Malone earlier in the season, because – after a better start than anyone could’ve reasonably expected – the team slumped while its best player was out sick. The Kings gave the job to Tyrone Corbin and promised him the rest of the season, though they obviously reneged by hiring Karl. Owner Vivek Ranadivé declared he wanted a jazz director. The front office was chaotic, and general manager Pete D’Alessandro and special advisor Chris Mullin would soon depart. DeMarcus Cousins stewed. Rudy Gay had been in Sacramento barely a year, but he had the franchised

  • Alex Rodriguez nearly laughed when Pete Rose complimented Derek Jeter

    Alex Rodriguez cannot stop his face from making that look when Pete Rose starts complimenting Derek Jeter. Kevin Burkhardt, Alex Rodriguez, Pete Rose, and Frank Thomas have been providing interesting commentary before and after the games, with A-Rod in particular standing out as a guy with deep baseball knowledge and a thoughtful approach. Of course, when you sit A-Rod and his thoughtful approach next to Pete Rose, king of the hot take, you’re bound to get a few strange and uncomfortable moments.

  • Three reasons we shouldn't count out the Dodgers in the NLCS

    As the first pitch of Game 6 of the National League Championship Series nears, almost all of the focus is on the Chicago Cubs opportunity to make history, reverse curses and reach the franchise’s first World Series since 1945. If any team has needed a 48-hour break to clear its mind and perhaps even allow the pressure to shift to the other side, it’s this Dodgers squad.

  • The Jimmy Vesey show leads Rangers over Capitals

    Washington Capitals forward Alex Ovechkin had the big highlight early in the game on Saturday night, but it was New York Rangers rookie Jimmy Vesey that ended up stealing the show. Vesey scored a pair of goals for the Rangers — the first multi-goal game of his career —  to help lead his team to a 4-2 win in Washington. Even though he had never played a game in the NHL before this season, Vesey was still one of the most sought after free agents this summer after he completed his college career at Harvard. He eventually signed an entry level deal with the Rangers, and given how much attention his free agency saga generated it seemed hard to believe that he could ever match the hype. Especially

  • Microsoft's tablet deal with the NFL has been a disaster

    The Microsoft Surface tablet is so bad that the best coach in the NFL would rather use paper. At least that’s the opinion of New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick, who has the best record of any current active coach, and who speaks out so rarely that any time he describes something in detail, it is instant catnip for the media. It may not be a fair review of the Surface, but unfortunately for Microsoft, it has become a major story this week.

  • Taylor Swift ready to get into a F1 frame of mind Saturday at COTA

    If you’re a fan of both Formula One and singer Taylor Swift, you should be at Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas on Saturday. Swift will perform her only scheduled concert of 2016 after Saturday’s action concludes on the racetrack. To get her fans even more excited about the concert, Swift – who is apparently already in Austin for rehearsals – took to Instagram earlier this week and posted several videos. The first clip was a short scene showing Swift playing an acoustic guitar. The second clip, which she captioned “Band practice,” showed Swift and her band rocking out on her 2012 hit, “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.” And then the third Instagram clip shows an exuberant Swift

  • Women's Soccer Star Undergoes Surgery To Remove Brain Tumor

    Former U.S. women’s national team star Lauren Holiday had surgery on Thursday to remove a brain tumor. She was diagnosed with a benign, operable brain tumor in June while carrying her child with New Orleans Pelicans player Jrue Holiday, and doctors induced birth early to expedite surgery which was slated for Thursday. Many friends and fans sent well-wishes to Holiday on social media as she prepared to undergo surgery: At their game on Wednesday, USWNT players wore wristbands that said LH12, for Holiday’s initials and the number she wore on her jersey. Teammates still call her “Cheney,” which is her maiden name: There have been no updates from Holiday or her husband since the surgery and information

  • The Tigers will listen to trade offers on anybody

    Earlier this week Tigers GM Al Avila said that his club was going to get “lean” and “efficient” and that their days of spending big money are over. Later in the week Avila said that they would not likely offer a long term contract to outfielder J.D. Martinez, who will become a free agent after the 2017 season. None of those comments necessarily suggested that the Tigers would be conducting a fire sale or anything, and it’s certainly possible to get leaner while still competing. One would assume that the Tigers could cut fat in the middle but still head into battle with their superstars. But that may not be the plan. Buster Olney: Trading those guys would be a pretty big deal. In both senses of

  • Jimmie Johnson fastest in final Sprint Cup Series practice at Talladega

    Jimmie Johnson was fastest in final Sprint Series practice Friday at Talladega Superspeedway with a lap of 196.386 mph. Johnson was followed by fellow Chase drivers Matt Kenseth (196.338 mph), Chase Elliott (196.334 mph), and Carl Edwards (196.330 mph). Alex Bowman, a non-Chase driver, was fifth fastest at 196.330 mph. Johnson was the only Chase driver in the top 10 in speeds who is locked into the next round of the Chase. His Hendrick Motorsports teammate, Elliott, is outside of a transfer spot by 25 points. The rest of the top 10 in final practice were Kasey Kahne (196.330 mph), Paul Menard (196.302 mph), Ryan Reed (196.266 mph), Kyle Busch (196.262 mph), and Martin Truex Jr. (196.250 mph).

  • The injury situation in Dallas is out of control

    Patrick Sharp, Patrick Eaves, Cody Eakin, Ales Hemsky, Jiri Hudler and Mattias Janmark. Those are the six — count ’em, six — forwards Dallas is currently without, at least as of this morning, due to a myriad of ailments. Sharp and Eaves were lost in last night’s controversial OT loss to L.A. According to head coach Lindy Ruff, Sharp is dealing with concussion symptoms and will be out “a while,” and the club is expected to know more about Eaves’ lower-body ailment today (per the Morning-News). So, what about the rest of the suffering six? Hemsky (groin) appears the closest to a return, and could possibly make his season debut in Saturday’s tilt against the Blue Jackets.

  • Reports: Celtics waive No. 51 pick Ben Bentil, offering R.J. Hunter or James Young for second-rounder

    The Celtics knew they drafted too many players, which is why they convinced No. 16 pick Guerschon Yabusele and No. 23 pick Ante Zizic to remain overseas and No. 58 pick Abdel Nader to sign with the D-League. That will allow Boston to maintain exclusive NBA negotiating rights on all three players. But that still left three draft picks – No. 3 pick Jaylen Brown, No. 45 pick Demetrius Jackson and No. 51 pick Ben Bentil – joining the Celtics’ roster. There isn’t enough room for all three, and Bentil – the only one without a guaranteed salary – is getting the boot. Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports: If Bentil clears waivers, Boston can assign his D-League rights to its affiliate. He would remain an NBA

  • Tomorrow's Top 25 Today: West Virginia leaps into the top 10 as Ohio State falls

    Coming into the year, I figured the Mountaineers were a solid Big 12 team sure to get tripped up a few times in the grind of the nine-game Big 12 schedule. This 2016 West Virginia team, I figured, was going to finish somewhere between third and sixth in the league depending on health and finishes in close games. In back-to-back wins against Texas Tech Red Raiders and TCU Horned Frogs , West Virginia bottled up its opponent on defense and used the ground game to power one-sided conference wins. With Oklahoma State Cowboys , Kansas Jayhawks and Texas Longhorns coming up on the schedule, it's time to consider Dana Holgersen's Mountaineers as a Big 12 title and College Football Playoff contender.
