KHAAS BAAT COMPLETES 18 YEARS
WE URGE READERS TO SUPPORT YOUR COMMUNITY
By NITISH S. RELE & SHEPHALI J. RELE
As Khaas Baat celebrates its 18-year anniversary this month, we thank our dedicated volunteer columnists for their valuable contributions, our savvy advertisers and well-wishers.
As we mentioned in the July issue, more than a third of newspapers in the United States have shut down in the last 15 years. Paper shortages and supply issues have hit community newspapers such as Khaas Baat the hardest but, despite all odds, we have continued to print on a monthly basis since the inaugural issue in August 2004. Things have been worse because of the pandemic, rising inflation and high gasoline prices. Once again, we urge everyone to support in our efforts.
If you pick up a copy from the grocery store/restaurant, consider subscribing for home delivery. And to business owners, we request you to promote your new endeavors to the community through our newspaper.
As activities are under way, we request community leaders and organizers to email event details to firstname.lastname@example.org by the 20th of the month for the following month’s issue. Feel strongly about an issue? Send us a letter to the editor. We always welcome your story ideas and suggestions on how we can best serve our community.
Khaas Baat is proud to be the ONE AND ONLY Sunshine State publication to offer comprehensive coverage of news and happenings in your Florida Indian community. Do follow us on twitter @khaasbaat and join us on Facebook.
