At the visit, students were provided with an opportunity to witness the technology involved in the printing of daily newspapers at the printing press. The students were amazed to see the technologically advanced equipment that was being used in the press. Students were informed that this newspaper covers matters related to political issues, sports, careers, lifestyle, women, entertainment, etc.
Amar Ujala had also organised a session for the students where they were briefed about the Press. The students were told that the shelf life of a newspaper is only 30 to 40 minutes and the delivery has to be very efficient. Amar Ujala also spreads news online, about the local, national and global world. In the session, students energetically popped up intelligent questions which were accentuated and meticulously addressed.
The visit to the Amar Ujala printing press was very informative for all. Students were thrilled to know the process of printing & publishing a newspaper and understand how newspapers reach subscribers’ homes on time.
