      Why is there a shipping charge for this item?

      Sellers with Flipkart Assured waive off the delivery charge for Orders over Rs 500. For Orders under Rs 500, a nominal delivery charge is added per item.

      Sellers without Flipkart Assured may or may not add a delivery charge to your Order. This is subject to Seller discretion.

      What is the estimated delivery time?

      Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.

      Estimated delivery time depends on the following factors:

      • The Seller offering the product
      • Product's availability with the Seller
      • The destination to which you want the order shipped to and the Seller's location

      Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

      It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

      'In Stock'

      Products‘In Stock’ are readily available with seller.

      Sometimes, items have to be sourced by Sellers from outside India. These items are mentioned as 'Imported' on the product page and can take at least 10 days or more to be delivered to you.

      'Back In Stock Soon'

      The item is popular and is sold out. You can however 'book' an order for the product and it will be shipped according to the timelines mentioned by the Seller.

      Why does the estimated delivery time vary for each seller?

      Delivery times are influenced by product availability, geographic location of the Seller, your shipping destination and the courier partner's time-to-deliver to your location.

      Please enter your default pin code on the product page to know more accurate delivery times on the product page itself.

      Seller does not/cannot ship to my area. Why?

      Enter your pincode on the product page to know whether the product can be delivered to your location.

      If you haven't provided your pincode until the checkout stage, the pincode in your last used shipping address will be used to check for serviceability.

      Whether your location can be serviced or not depends on:

      • Whether the Seller actually ships to your location
      • Legal restrictions, if any, in shipping particular products to your location
      • The availability of reliable courier partners in your location

      At times Sellers prefer not to ship to certain locations. This is entirely at their discretion.

    Description
    Journalist is a person whose job is to collect and write news stories for newspapers, magazines, radio or television. Becoming a good journalist is the dream of a large number of aspirants who want to make a mark in this highly rewarding field.
    There is a dearth of quality books on journalism. Among the few available books in the market some are cluttered with redundant details on professional journalism while others contain elaborate descriptions of a particular journalist’s professional journey providing little valuable substance for the readers.
    How to Become a Good Journalist ably fulfils the needs of budding journalists as it presents the entire process of making of a newspaper/magazine in a succinct and interesting way. It explains the entire working of the editorial side of a newspaper—popularly known as the desk jobs—which gives a lot of exposure to reading, developing and abstracting various types of written reports.
    The book explains all the important aspects of journalism, viz. the role of a sub-editor, news desk operations, what constitutes news, how to distinguish between various types of news and decide about their priority and place in the columns of newspaper. It not only explains the finer points of editing but also tells a lot about news selection, news writing, playing with words to create crisp headlines, avoiding and detecting errors and coping with deadline pressures. The basics of grammar have also been included as they are a sine qua non for all reporters, feature writers and desk persons. In addition, different aspects of freelance journalism and page-making tips have been provided.
    The book has been written in a simple language and lucid style. The approach is not exhaustive but all the important features of journalism have been covered to make it a complete package on the subject. It will prove immensely helpful to students in their goal of becoming good journalists. It will also strengthen the skill-set of those already in the profession.
