    Good show by your team and congrats for your sleek and compact afternooner. The tabloid's language is simple and the content rich and informative. The hedlines are attention-grabbing and the colour transparencies attractive. Wish you all success in your future endeavours. Pisipati Sriram, Hydrabad.
