In this close-knit community that communicates through this newspaper, nothing is hidden. The newspaper has become the lifeline that keeps the community alive and has created a social security net for those who fall on hard times, says Manesh Karani, founder of Asanjo Kutch, a website launched to connect Kutchis globally.
“If our children do well, we put announcements here. If they marry, we announce it here. If we are blessed with grandchildren, we write about it here. If we start a business, we write it here. If we need help at a hospital, we write it here. If someone is collecting or giving donations for books, blood, time, money, we write it here. This is the newspaper that Kutchis, no matter how highly educated, pick up before The Times of India, The Economic Times or Hindustan Times,” says Karani
Karani’s website publishes a PDF version of the Patrika every day, “for Kutchis who do not receive the printed version and want to keep in touch with their families in India” ....... for more news click on the following link
