Just Samachar

Friend, philosopher, and fellow-blogger, Thejovardhana Kote, has come up with a news aggregation website, which he calls Just Samachar. In his email introducing the new(s) service, he writes...

I built it because I got tired of all the ads on samachar.com, the site I was using earlier. I wanted some additional features too...
Built using RSS feeds, the website offers links to content on various Indian news websites, including The Hindu, The Indian Express, The Times of India, Rediff, NDTV and CNN-IBN. The site even features a Technorati-style In the News section, which displays the hot topics in the news in the past 24 hours.

Thejo reveals that he built the site "over the weekend". The About section of the site has the scoop on the site's raison d'etre and also some technical details on how the site was built.

Great work, Thejo!

great work man! Just what I was looking for. Now a days I am just too annoyed to go to samachar.com. They not only have their page clustered with ads but also install spyware on your computer.

thanks for posting these pictures; avoided some efforts; you know, mylapore tank was covered by the same photographer next week, i.e. on 8th January during the annual Mylapore festival?

Good job man, I personally prefer grabline.com but this looks good too.
And yes, I am also a old samachar.com user, but now sites like yours and grabline.com give people like me more options; and let's say it loud: "Samachar.com SUCKS!"
