Of Corrigendums and Immolation Bids


We are extremely sorry that Prashant resorted to such an extreme step. We had already conveyed our apologies to him. Out story was based on an unofficial source who provided us with false and biased information.

Following the publication of the story, our source mysteriously vanished. Reports later stated the accused was seen holidaying in the backwaters of Kerala.

Since we have no means to trace him, we offer an unconditional written apology to Prashant asking him to take back the case against us and settle the matter out-of-court.

We also beg Prashant to consider the plight of millions of our readers who have not had the chance of getting Office News updates for a month now. This publication is like manna for them, without which they cannot even contemplate surviving.

We have had frantic calls asking us to renew publication and there have been several self-immolation bids as well.

Prashant! Take pity and let this blessed publication continue its work of divine inspiration.

At the same time, we would like to remind Prashant, that if and when he goes to Dubai, he should certainly get some chocolates from there for his journalistic brethren. After all, it's his duty before God - to care for his colleagues.
