includes stories in many categories, including current affairs, international
news, Hollywood, bollywood, cricket, television, citizens concerns and many
others. Within a week of its launch, over 1300 stories, all submitted by readers,
can be read on the site. There is no editorial control over the content, it is
entirely driven by the community, the release adds.
at the occasion, Imagilon CEO Jay Joshi said, We felt that the time was
right for an online news community, as net usage among Indians is at a never-before
seen high, with almost 40 million users. More and more people are turning to the
net to access news, but more importantly, many are also using the net to voice
their opinion in the form of blogs and online communities. We designed Jhanki
to be a meeting point for news and opinions that would normally be dispersed among
various news sites, blogs and communities. Our job is to provide an excellent
technical backbone, that makes it easy and fun for users to add news and comments,
then the community takes over.
