December 5: TMJ closes for the semester
Though one could consider four months to be a very short period of time, we at TMJ however feel it has been a term of exploration and growth where each day has been a learning experience. We only pause for a while as we take off for our semester break to revitalize ourselves for the next.
Unlike previous semesters, this one has been extraordinary in the phase of TMJ’s growth. It is with pride that after three years, we have restarted the Video Feature section which was discontinued due to technical difficulties. We aspire to add more to this by starting a Podcast section on our website. The editorial team has also decided to open the blog section to our readers and they can now contribute to our blog section by getting in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org. What can be more phenomenal with it coinciding with the fifth anniversary of our journal?
TMJ has broadened its horizon by trying to get students out of town and explore more of the Udupi district. By diving into this we have realised how hard it is to do an investigative story considering our resources. But we have always believed in bringing out stories that aren’t considered mainstream in today’s media. Be it the UPCL issue, the issue of women surviving for decades on Rs. 15 or be it the plight of the untouchable Koraga tribe. There is more digging happening as and when I write this, as our reporters and editorial team strive hard to bring out stories in an unbiased manner to our readers.
There is a lot that is unheard and a lot untold. We will continue to tell these tales next semester. The website will go live on January 20. Here is wishing everyone Happy vacations and a very Happy New Year from The Manipal Journal team.
