    • Dear Mr Mishra
      We just got to see your mail.
      We wish to thank you for your kind advice. However, the web team which is on a trial run is indeed a very small group of 4 people. At the moment we are trying to translate some old stories to see how good the people are with the translation assignment.
      We will go public only in November 2013- after we recruit at least 10 more people and get connected to the Eastern Media news network. Kindly bear with us until then. We are sure we will be as fast as the 24/7 news channels when we go full steam.

      Thanks a lot for keeping track of our trial run.
      We hope to hear from you more often.

      on behalf of Odisha Sun Times
