    Best Wishes to The Salt List.This,indeed,is the best of time(World Cup Glory),and the worst of time(Scams galore),to launch an online magazine.The peccadilloes of politicians,the bumbling governance,the canker of corruption,revival of medieval horrific practices like so-called honour killings,the Love-Sex-Dhoka times,the technology transforming men-women,all this and much more!Babuji dheere chalna,zindagi ki daud mein zara sambhalna….aur is daud mein piche chootte haashiye ke log!!I sincerely hope the enthusiastic creative girls under their inspiring mentor will create a journalistic Dandi March(that too concerned Salt!) online.Badhe Chalo,Badhe Chalo!!

    thank You for the Comment & for taking the time for reading us. We tremendously appreciate your kind words. The Mahatma is the original inspiration. Anna Hazare is on a fast. these are times of flux. We hope to restore some order to the chaos. Keep the encouragement coming. That’s what the Saltlisters thrive on. Thanks again.

    At a time when mainstream media is in the danger of relegating its role – of a honest societal mirror – to an advertisement carrier, political tool, neo-liberal mouthpiece or breaking-news circus, i hope this venture will explore the promising potential of internet journalism to give space to more meaningful realities.

    Best Wishes.

    And Thumbs up to the ardent and amusing verbal acrobatics of the introduction. 🙂
