‘Sambad’ is not into publishing news alone. It is into a whole lot of activities which concerns people and their issues:Soumya Ranjan Patnaik

Bhubaneswar:4/10/17: ‘Sambad’ is not into publishing news alone. It is into a whole lot of activities which concerns people and their issues, said Soumya Ranjan Patnaik, editor of the leading newspaper, during the foundation day ceremony of Odisha’s No 1 regional daily, which completed 33 years of its existence on Wednesday.

Recounting the days from conceptualisation to the initial days of struggle of setting up of the newspaper company, Patnaik said one has to firmly believe in himself in order to attain his goal. “Had I been in two minds, I wouldn’t have succeeded to establish the conglomerate which gives direct/indirect employment to around 20,000 people”. Drawing parallel with a leading steelmaker’s tagline, Patnaik said we also publish news. Apart from being in the news business, we are into CSR activities and whole lot of activities for larger public good.

At the event, Monica Nayyar Patnaik, managing director of the media house, thanked her colleagues and associates for their contribution to the paper’s 33-year long journey.

The occasion also saw the presence of Tanaya Patnaik, Executive Director of the organisation, on the stage speaking about the challenges and future growth areas of the media house.
