Voice of Senior Citizens - New Tabloid from Hyderabad - Review

I have come across a new tabloid called "Voice of Senior Citizens"
published from Hyderabad. It has 12 pages, bilingual (Telugu &
English) and a monthly. The first issue Vol 1 No 1 May 2009 has been

Articles include:

1.Government and its employees are inseparable - Speech by Rosaiah
(CM) when he addressed Silver Jubilee celebrations at Pensioners
2. The Life of Rural Aged is miserable by Sandeep Kumar Sulthania,
Collector, Karim Nagar District
3.Towards a society for all ages by Dr Rao Chelikani.

I found that 8 out 12 pages are in Telugu, illustrating the strong
bias towards local language shared with a vengeance by most people in
AP. However, as a person not knowing Telugu ( to read or write) I
stand to lose about 65% of the contents.

Sri Bhooma Reddy, the editor, told me that he himself is a senior
citizen (retired as a journalist) and the tabloid is being brought out
by the co-operation of a few senior citizens themselves in Hyderabad.
Hence the contents will be relevant, I am sure. Priced modestly at
just Rs 5/- per issue I feel it will fill a long felt gap, among
senior citizens, in getting something interesting and useful to read,
munch and think once a month!
