A matter of picking up times- let and let live

Peoples’ response to the small medium newspapers particularly those published in the evening in the state of Manipur appear to be just another discouragement to the journalist fraternity who had been rendering service to deliver first hand information to the people of the state. May be there are many reasons for the poor popularity of evengers in the state. For example almost all the evening daily published in Imphal have only one page and none of the publication are printed I black and white only. Besides the paper quality sometimes stand as another reason. But what we the eveningers felt is the poor maintenance of the state law and order situation which compelled the Imphalites to shuts all their shutters after 6 pm. Evening life is a complete flop in Imphal due to apprehension of various incident – for example travelling after 7 in Imphal city is considered risky for someone as they fear harassment from law enforcing agencies. Even those distributing newspapers do not want to risk their life in such a situation. Yet, our newspaper distributors need credit for helping in sustaining the evening daily media houses in the state.
It is our humble appealed to all the people of the state including the law enforcers to help all the evening daily as information is power for all. Evening daily published in the state including our Imphal Times has been sparing no pains to let the people of the state know the latest happening. Getting information 12 hours ahead will be definitely a matter of 12 hour advancement in every field. Be it in trade, travelling plan, exam preparation everything will be beneficial if the information about it has been learnt earlier.
Our Imphal Times is over three years old now. When we start venturing our journey we though providing best and fast information will certainly served the people regardless of the income we might earn. The fact is that we had never thought of earning profit from Imphal Times. However we do understand that we will require some return for sustaining the media house. Now we manage that and we do not bother about making profit. But we are very serious over our failure to reach out all the Imphalites due to certain factors mentioned above.
Fortunately, we are not that much discourage, as we are able to provide news service to over 15000 people across 83 countries around the world. The audience is speculated base on the response we are getting through our web page.
The point here we wanted to focus is to encourage evening life in the state. In 24 hours a day the people of the state had life for only 10 hours . Live begins at 8 and then shuts at 6 pm in Imphal. Imagine, if we could extend our working hour just for 6 more hour we will be picking up 6 hours ahead of what we have achieved so far.
