In 120 Words
In120words.com is an experiment of web journalism. We try to put important news and specially indepth analysis in english.
इस पन्ने का लिंक आपको हमारी एक अन्य कोशिश In120words.com के पन्ने पर ले जाता है।
हमलोगों ने ऐसा महसूस किया है कि हिन्दी और अंग्रेजी के पाठकों के पढ़ने की सोच काफी भिन्न होती है।
इंटरनेट के माध्यम से अंग्रेजी समाचार तलाशने वालों की जरूरतें तो दूसरे माध्यमों से पूरी हो सकती हैं।
हमलोगों ने In120words.com को दूसरे मिजाज का बनाने का प्रयोग किया है।
ताकि गंभीर किस्म के पाठकों को कुछ अलग किस्म की पठनीय सामग्री मिल सके।
वर्तमान में यह अत्यंत शिशु अवस्था में है।
हमारी कोशिश होगी कि जिस मकसद से In120words.com का जन्म हुआ है, उसे भविष्य में हम पूरा कर सकें।
In120words.com was born over a cup of coffee.
At Rashtriya Khabar’s office at Harmu Bypass Road,Ranchi, they serve excellent hot,steaming coffee.
No coffee vending machine but hand made by a lady staff, a young girl, who mixes lots of intelligence with the right amounts of coffee, milk and sugar.
Even the foam that fills the brim of the coffee mug seems to be measured, quite unlike the costly, yet ghastly coffee, that is served at all airports across the country, where the quantity of foam, in the paper mug in which it is served, is always more than the hot liquid floating below.
in120words, How It Happened
It was a chance discovery though. It was early March 2017.
Rajat Kumar Gupta, editor, Rashtriya Khabar, a Hindi daily published from Ranchi, called and invited me for an evening chat at his office.
Over that magical cup of coffee, that was served soon enough,
Rajat began showing me the rashtriyakhabar.com web page and all the hits that it attracts.
The Rashtriya Khabar web page is in Hindi
and I just querried if we could come out with an English news portal with lots of new and unique features, to make it attractive .
“YES”, his voice boomed. “Do it”, he stressed. That was more of a command !
We began looking at various names – The Front Seat, Jharkhand Observer , News Hour, News Now .
Most of the names were unappealing.
It was at this point that Shishir Kumar came along.
The younger generation is always smarter that the older school of thought and Shishir, who looks fresh out of university, has his head brimming with ideas.
And In120words.com was born
