Orthodox Herald Web Malayalam Edition To Be Under Subscription

Written By: on Jul 22nd, 2010 and filed under Editorial, Features.


PHILADELPHIA: Indian Orthodox Herald, the online Orthodox News Portal that actively brings news and speeches from February 2002 in English, from 2005 in Malayalam and from November 2009 on Web Edition, is making the Web Malayalam Edition under subscription.

For almost a year the activities at the Indian office had been reduced due to the excessive financial burden that it was demanding in the context of consistently receding income. Therefore, powerful speeches and pregnant articles with theological insights were missing for the extensive readership of Indian Orthodox Herald.

The monthly subscription for Indian Orthodox Herald will be $2.00 for a month and $6.00 for three months. In the next three months time, the Malayalam Edition from 2005 onwards will be available in the web-archives.

Indian Orthodox Herald is trying to maintain its decorum by presenting itself in a vivid manner and strongly holding on to the diversity of dignified media. It is not a ‘notice board’ that lets paste the news and photos on a free site. Malayalam web development itself costed about Rs. 3.5 lacs. IOH is not using any Unicode letters for Malayalam. Moreover, the Malayalam edition is available on Mobile phone as well.

BMM creations have more than five full time Editors and many reporters at various states and nations. An own server is used to bring news to the whole world, as and when they break.

Incoming news have to be edited and typed, they need to be translated and typed for English edition, and the whole thing needs to be then coordinated. One would also need to contact people at various countries for accurate news scoops. There beyond come the office expenses. Esteemed readers may kindly be aware of these background activities to know the reality and constrain that IOH is facing at present.

Urbane Projects used to fund for IOH even into the recent past. However, the recession has squeezed and pushed Urbane Projects back from doing that. It is in this very context that the subscription is being introduced. Indian Orthodox Herald sincerely requests all its esteemed readers to understand and continue your benevolent attitude.

It is possible to register the names and pay the subscription online. Click here to register and pay for the subscription. Help Support Indian Orthodox Herald.

    SO WHOLE HEARTED VOLUNTARY DONATIONS ( &REGULAR SUPPORT) FROM ALL CHURCH LOVERS ARE NEEDED TO SUSTAIN THE SITE.

  2. Susanna Rajan says:

    On the question of pay walls for news websites, Mr. Rusbridger said The Guardian’s website was reaching two million people every day, which was well ahead of The Times (which had introduced the paid model). There was nothing definite about whether the pay walls worked, but by present calculations, the revenue they were expected to bring were small, while the loss of audiences would be staggering.

  3. AS THE AMERICAN CHURCHES AND THE AMERICAN DIOCESES ARE GETTING THE MAXIMUM COVERAGE IN BOTH THE ENGLISH AND THE MALAYALAM EDITIONS
    THE AMERICAN DIOCESES SHOULD CONSIDER SPONSORING THE ORTHODOX HERALD.MORE OVER THESE DIOCESES HAVE NO OFFICIAL PUBLICATIONS OF IT’S OWN WHEN THE OTHER FACTION AND THE MARTHOMA CHURCH HAVE THEIR OWN PUBLICATIONS.IN THAT CASE THE ADMINISTRATORS SHOULD SPARE A FEW PAGES/SPACE EXCLUSIVELY FOR THESE TWO DIOCESES.

    Kind attn Admin
    Different people can use the same post office for posting letters, same telephone for talking to same person, same micrphone for making annoucements, is there any harm in sharing the same computer? What amatters is their opinion. After all you have power to remove any posts. I do not understand what prompted you to post IP addres as if we have we posted something illegal or malicous material.

    I sign off, thank you

    Hi Suma Mathews & Susanna Rajan you are using too many aliases from the same ip address (111.93.99.98). If you are the same user please restrain from using different names.

    In the Malayalam, you have hardly one or two news items a day and the content remains the same for almost a couple of weeks if not a month. I think this work is insufficient to make it a pay site . The lack interest among readers is also evident fom the fact that not a single person has posted a coment on the stories.

  7. Saju Chacko Kuttickandathil says:

    This is a good move. But why spare the English readers who are generally considered as ‘rich’.

  8. Suma Mathews says:

    I hope all will welcome the move.

    I have a suggestion. Like many other online channles, you can provide a premium content, archives and spcial items and facilities to those who pay. I think it is wise to keep everybody post comments as very few are able to give good cmments. That is definitely a contribution and value addition for the content.
