With over one lakh public participation in various events, the festival received an overwhelming reception underscoring the importance of Dainik Bhaskar in the lives of its readers, said the publication.
Jagdish Sharma, Managing Editor, said, “For the last 40 years Dainik Bhaskar has been the voice of Indore. We have been raising the concerns of the denizens of Indore, airing their views on various issues, and shaping their opinions on matters of national and international importance. Great to see the continuous reposition of faith and utmost allegiance to Dainik Bhaskar by extraordinary Indoreans, through their tremendous response and participation in Bhaskar Utsav. We are humbled.”
State COO Sumit Modi added, “Indore has grown at a neck-breaking pace in the last 40 years, and so has its favourite newspaper, Dainik Bhaskar, both in the city as well as nationally. As a true confidant of the Indoreans, Dainik Bhaskar has been a close witness to this rise of Indore and has benefitted from it. The tremendous response of the people of Indore to Dainik Bhaskar's Bhaskar Utsav, commemorating 40 years journey of Dainik Bhaskar in Indore, is an apt testimony of it. It would not have been possible without the constant support that we have received from our advertisers, sponsors, and, above all, our readers. Thanks to one and all.”
