Calcutta Times : The Saturday Avatar

Needed to put in this clarification after my two recent posts : The New Calcutta Times on October 8 and Calcutta Times : a put off after a great hope on October 10.

Well, it's permanent. And it's ONLY on Saturday. On Saturdays, Calcutta Times is donning this exciting tabloid avatar. Apart from familiar sections it has a cover story. The interviews are also structured differently, with more pictures and text boxes, to suit the tabloid format. Loved the interview of the actor brothers Gaurav and Arjun Chakraborty (Of Gaaner Opare fame), also known as the sons of the well-known actor couple Sabyasachi Chakraborty and Mithu Chakraborty, on the October 29 edition (See the cover in picture).

Looking forward to the Saturdays for one more reason!

  1. The new look for the Saturday supplement is fine, but I would have appreciated if the contents were bettered by a notch too.

  2. The cover story itself is a change in content. As for other things, I guess it will depend on how well it is initially received among the readers. I have a gut feel that TOI will make CT Saturday 'happening' in near future.
