The Civil And Military Gazette Lahore

The Civil and Military Gazette Office in Lahore

The Civil and Military Gazette was a daily English language newspaper founded in 1872 in British India. It was published from Lahore and Simla and Karachi, some times simultaneously, until its closure on August 31, 1963 after 94 years of its publication.

The Civil and Military Gazette is possibly most notable for being the workplace of renowned British author and poet, Rudyard Kipling worked fro 1882-87. It was referred to by Kipling as his "mistress and most true love."

Kipling was assistant editor of the CMG, a job procured for him by his father, who was curator of the Lahore Museum , when it was decided that he lacked the academic ability to get into Oxford University on a scholarship.

Rudyard Kipling eventually left the Civil and Military Gazette in 1887, to move to its sister-newspaper in Allahabad, The Pioneer.

Mahbub Jamal Zahedi joined the Civil and Military Gazette in 1963, at a time when its last branch, situated in Lahore, was about to cease publication. He served there for only a few months, before he moved to Dawn in Karachi.
