From today, DNA does away with the edit page

Aditya Sinha, Editor-in-Chief


For years, many of you have felt that the newspaper edit page has long outlived its usefulness. It’s boring, very few read it, and it’s a chore to fill. It’s more punditry than expert comment. It’s become a single-page editorial ghetto; and that makes little sense in this TV/mobile/web age where you’re looking for more news validation and analysis.
Thus, DNA has decided to do away with its edit page.
This does not mean DNA will shun analysis: after all, it’s part of our title. Instead, DNA will give you more comment, spread across the paper. For instance, today we have articles by experts on Mumbai, on corruption and on the China-US presidential meeting. Each will appear on a different news page. Otherwise, they’d appear on three consecutive edit pages. DNA will give you more comment in the days to come; you’ve already seen it in the Money section, and you will even see it on the Sport pages. And it will all be interesting.
DNA is doing away with the “leaders”, the 400-word unsigned editorials. Instead, as and when a news event warrants a stand by DNA, it will appear on page 1.
The letters to the editor remain. They remain an important interactive forum and will now appear on page 2.
DNA believes the newspaper is a work in progress. Unless it evolves, it will become irrelevant. We are confident you will support our efforts at modernising journalism and staying ahead of the times.

The Winds

The winds blow by
Whispering on the leaves
Asking me why?

What did i do….
Change ….
Is my answer

Is that rite
I ask them with a
Pain in my voice….

So now the winds laugh
that’s what u deserve
And drown me
with worldly advice

Move on they say
Will get use to it

Will i ?
i ask them

What if i dont want to
What if i loved him….

They laugh…love they say
U fool they don’t fall in love
They are flying kite
Floating, don’t pull it down and
Make them yours

They will leave u and not care…
And yes tats what they did….

They say i change them…
making them mine
Is tat a change…
but no reply…

Because now
I am alone at nite…

What goes around comes around

I know this post is going to be a little confusing…but few things are not meant to be told, but just felt…I wish my writing can help u feel what I did, at that very movement…

Yes indeed I am struck where I started from. Somehow circumstances, environment, company and situation have always managed to push in the past. No, I am not proud of the dark nook-corner of my past, and if I start to explain you the reason why these exist, then you would say I am just making things up to save my soul; just coming up with stupid excuse to find my way out.

Recently circumstances have brought me back again to that one way road, I have been trying to avoid. But then I have to bear it yet again, go through it and indeed remember it. No matter what I do, I always end my shedding my tear on it…on the past…why can’t people let it be. WHY?

Is my past more important then what I am? This person I have become. Is it important to know why and how I came to be what I am today? Am I so unimportant to you than what I feel and the condition that I am will be after that doesn’t make any difference to you? Do I deserve such selfishness…

Yes, I loved every person, I was with and yes, we did have our special movement. I promised to love them through the ups and the down and yes I meant it, when I said I love you to them and every time I said it.

And yes it’s my fault that I wasn’t a cunning bitch… I wish I was… I wish I could manipulate people and break others heart rather than my own heart. Indeed it did be better if other would have cried instead of me. It did be better…
