It has been a week of breaking news from me, if you think it is!!
This time, Times of India is going to launch its Chennai edition very soon. They have started giving out pamphlets in commercial and office complexes. As part of their innaugural offer, one year subscription costs you Rs299/- and comes with a free gift of stainless steel flask. The 6 months subscription costs you Rs170/- with a free gift of travel bag.
For die-hard Times of India fans and for people who have come down to Chennai from other parts of India, it would be a nice new year gift. Times of India, as many of us know, is the largest selling newspaper with sales of 3.1 million copies everyday. This is 100,000 more than the no.2 paper, Sun of UK.
I personally look forward to TOI very eagerly as I am a regular reader of The Hindu for many many years now. I am curious to know how different TOI is different from The Hindu.
Lets welcome Times of India to Chennai!!
