Success is not the result of one day's work, it entails step by step hard work and planning. TANMAYA MURTHY of class IX also achieved her target by overcoming several obstacles. In order to be a part of the editorial team of a youth newspaper under Times NIE initiative

TANMAYA stood out from strength of 207 other students from all over Delhi and NCR who had come to Times NIE centre at Daryaganj to give it a try.

Finally along with 36 other shortlisted students Tanmaya doned the hat of the editor of 'My Dream Kinda Newspaper'. These chosen few, under the guidance of Nikhat Kazmi and Allen O' Brien, were then given a peep into the world of journalism. Students in this workshop visited the Times NIE press at Sahibabad and got familiar with various facets of journalism like reporting, sub editing, writing critical reviews, commentaries and page designing.

TANMAYA described the 11 day workshop to be a hectic but great learning experience. Working and interacting with students much senior to her helped her gain confidence. The bonding within the group led to great results, work wise and her group was adjudged the best in the exercise of sub editing.

After a fruitful workshop TANMAYA seems a lot more confident. Having gained a glimpse of the world of journalism she knows that it's not as much a cakewalk as it appears to be to a layman. She suggests that Creative-Writing exercises at school contribute in honing the skills for journalism aspirants.
