Yesterday they had an interaction at the home of Ajit Ninan, chief cartoonist with The Times of India group and regarded as a living legend in the field. He has received both national and international awards.

Their next newspaper visit is with the editor of the Hindustan Times for interaction and to visit their newsroom before beginning their journey home through the Jet Airways-Fiji Airways connection.

Fiji Sun Publisher/CEO Peter Lomas said: “We’ve built strong and valuable connections with India.

Both through programmes like this, trainers like Jai Kumar Sharma coming from India and through our graduate journalists coming back from India.

“India is now one of the strongest growing newspaper markets in the world. Indian newspapers and newspaper experts are leading the way in innovative thinking. Jai, for example, is doing major projects for newspapers not just in India but across Asia and Africa.”
