Dear Readers,
It has been three years since The Tribune Online Edition was launched. While it has brought non-resident Indians closer to home, it has also provided a window on this region to other surfers. The response has been very encouraging and many of you have written to us in an emotional vein, as a regular visitor to the site once commented: “The Tribune Online restored my umbilical chord.”

Our focus on the region has given you fare that is unparalleled for its exhaustive coverage of the area. We are grateful to you all for the positive response. As we move on, we would love to have your suggestions to serve you better.
Thank you
