Bhubaneswar, Mar 15: Several Self Help Groups (SHGs) operational in Ganjam district has now come forward to cater to the shortage of masks in the state by formulating a plan to ‘Make it In Odisha’. Several women workers in rural areas have now jumped onto the bandwagon.

The women workers who started the works are close to 50. The selected women SHG workers have started producing it locally through the easily available commodities around them. This comes a time when the stocks of masks have vanished from the local market due to increased demand in the light of Coronavirus threat.

Ganjam Collector Vijay Kulange on Sunday said that the locally produced masks will be available at the local level from Monday. In a Twitter post, his office wrote, “Why worry..mask is here ..prepared by Women Self help Groups of will be available at GP level by tomorrow (sic),”

We are a bunch of like-minded people from the media who came forward to build a niche where important news affecting the people at large could be covered independently. This website has been envisioned to be a one stop centre for stories on different facets of the society which should ideally get space in the media but due to several reasons the mainstream media do not give them ample space. This website is trying to build that void. We are trying to report from the important developments from the eastern India with special focus on Odisha, West Bengal and the North East. This website was founded by some senior, mid and new budding journalists to cater to the needs of consumers of digital media which is unbiased, non dependent on government ads for survival and dare to report on the issues which should get ample space in the media and spark debate and discussions in the society. We have our representatives in New Delhi, Odisha, West Bengal, Chattisgarh and North East to cater to the needs of people from their region which are otherwise shunned by the national media. We have our head office at Bhubaneswar in Odisha
