It’s a welcome step for our friend Himanshu Pandit to launch an online media portal from Nagpur. I believe in coming 10 years time physical newspapers printed on paper will be the dinosaur that we will be looking back on with fond nostalgia.
Stories get stale remarkably quickly these days and yesterday’s news becomes irrelevant almost instantly. We don’t want to wait 24 hours to read about something that just happened. And if the flood is coming to town I want to know about it now. With online news resources you get all this engagement and interactivity. It’s happening now and we can’t stop it even if we want to because you can’t put the genie back into the bottle. And online media would certainly replace the printmedia in coming days.
The Live Nagpur would certainly be a landmark for such a change. I wish the team The Live Nagpur all success in coming days !
