Bhubaneswar, Jan 4: On the occasion of #WorldBrailleDay, we tried to show how Braille books are aiding in the literacy of people with low vision/blindness and how advanced technologies are transforming their lives besides the bottlenecks.

We visited the only Braille press of Odisha based in Berhampur and also talked to several students with low vision and blindness to understand the role of Braille books and the issues affecting their studies. We also tried to talk to some experts on the issue.

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
