      There seems to be of no use for sending the information in advance in this fast Internet time. No proper result is achieved inspite of informing you for my daughter’s internship on 10th June,2011. You are making publicity of your channel and programmes uselessly and wasting user’s time and energy, thus harassing the sufferer.

        sir, with due respect we would like to inform you that your daughter could not fulfil the requirements put forward by our organization for this internship. this had been communicated to her as well. pls try avoiding posting such comments on public forums without knowing the reality. thanks

          I wrote the things, as she needed internship at that time, but could not get any response from your site in Yes/No. I was also seeing Internship programme of your Channel regularly, but she could not be able to get the Internship, which is still needed by her for July,2011 as is necessary for journalist students.

  3. can i take the programme now.
