I like the idea, and hope you'll maintain it. Have stopped reading newspapers since I find them most depressing.



Thomas Arun
Today I read a positive story of a doctor saving a girl from coma by using music therapy which he found from internet. This really excited me and I was literally inspired to do something big. So I think TWL's positive journalism will inspire all to do something good.

Journalism is like a science of humanity but unfortunately today, humanity as a value itself has taken our leave. There are so many negative aspects in the articles, I come across. Yes, they are depressing and make us think what the world has come to. But that is not the end. Positive journalism stems from the truth and honesty which I believe The Weekend Leader is capable of performing even in today's era. Hoping to read positivity in a negative era.
