An open letter to Divya Marathi, a Marathi daily news paper (Aurangabad)
Dear Sir / Madam,
The news published in Daily Newspaper ‘Divya Marathi (Aurangabad) on 01.02.2013 on page 3 and reads that “a kid studying in 8th standard along with his father have created a social networking website called dakhal.in“.
Its very strange that Divya Marathi is publishing news without any verification. There are many social networking softwares available freely to download and some paid downloads. Your so-called ‘invented’ website dakhal.in is nothing but a downloaded version of “phpfox“. phpFox is a social network software that gives you the ability to create a unique community that includes many of the features found on sites like Facebook and MySpace.
If you look at the screenshot (attached), you will find that dakhal.in is nothing but a phpfox apps.
Is DivyaMarathi is trying to publish a news blindly without any research or its just a stunt for cheap publicity from the developer’s side.
Developing website is not a “MONKEY BUSINESS”. Its a serious affair which requires clear understanding of methodology and vast knowledge and experience. Its not a 8th class science experiment that you gave wide publicity.
Now one thing is clear from this stunt that “Newspapers’ being technology illiterate“ .
