Hyderabad:Taking a break from their usual routine & starched uniform, a team of distinguished defence personnel visited the newsroom of The Times of India, Hyderabad on Wednesday, to experience the operational workflow of the media house. The team comprising 60 senior officers – Colonels, Group Captains and Captains–took a tour around the TOI office premises, stopping by to interact with journalists, photographers and graphic designers, during the two-hour session.
Hearteningly, despite their high ranks, every member of the team displayed a great level of enthusiasm as they went about curiously trying to study the production process of a newspaper. That apart, the memorable evening was also marked with a lively exchange of ideas and discussions as the officers seamlessly bonded with the editorial staffers over coffee and conversation. Not only did they keenly observe the functioning of the English daily, but the officers also showed great interest in knowing more about the lives and lifestyles of employees working for the organisation.
