What defines A News?
Any information or report about the current happenings in different regions of the world, country or city should be classified as a news.
A news can also be seen as the way of reporting that keeps us informed about the changing events and issues around us.
There could be many topics for news such as National, Politics, Health, Business, Entertainment, Technology, Sports and so on. Here at India Updates, we cover all those type of news. We try to cover all the trending news in India but apart from that we also cover some of the important world news.
To sum up, we should define the news as –
- Report of any recent event around us
- Reporting of previously unknown information
What is the purpose of news or journalism?
There may be many opinions as what is the purpose of news, but to us the purpose of news should only be reporting of recent events of the matter that is newsworthy. We at India updates believe that the purpose of news should be only these.
- Provide information to people
- Reporting of social issues and events
- Report the event or issue in simple words
What are qualities of a Good News?
We always believe that news are information and that should be the main quality of news – Provide good and reliable information. However there are some top elements of a good quality news.
1. Reliable Information – Reporting some events, issue or an information is basically reporting news. The information that is being reported should be reliable and verified.
Apart from that there must be some details for the information such a who, what, when, where and why.
2. Importance – Well sometimes a piece of information can be very important to us but not to other people. We just cannot decide to report or not to report any events or an issue based on our interest.
We should always keep in mind our readers and audience. What are they looking for. What information of news they want and what information, reports or news they can benefit from.
3. Focus – Quality of the good news is the focus of the news. It should be limited and focused. Going into very detailed information is useful but not all the time. We should always try to report the news in limited and focused way.
Does ‘News’ actually stand for something? Is it an acronym?
Many of people sometimes claims news is an acronym and the full form of News is either ‘North East West South’ or ‘Notable Events, Weather and Sport’.
But that’s not true.
We believe there is no any full form of the word “News”. The word news is just a plural form of new and it was developed in 14th century.
As the name implies, ‘news’ typically suggests presentation of new information.
What are types of News?
News Report – Reporting news is a responsible and serious job. The news reporting should be neutral and responsible. The news reporting should cover almost most of the topics like Government, Politics, Business News.
Feature Article – Almost same as news report but there is a slight difference. News reports are generally about the information and happenings of recent past where as features can be of the late past and often includes personalities, phenomenon and the big process of economies and countries.
Editorial – Any newspaper of website should have an Editorial section. We at India Updates also have one. The main purpose of Editorial is to convey the idea and opinion of editors and journalists on current issues or news.
Letters to the editor – Newspapers or online news portals should include the section called letter to the editor. Many young journalists, students or people with writing skills takes this as an opportunity for showcasing their skills.
We have also started a new section where you can share the article and if we find it newsworthy and as long as it does not violate our terms, we will publish it

Do you people at India updates claim to be a journalist?
No, we do not make any such claims. We are not journalist. However we know what journalism is. We just try to provide users with news that are currently trending in India so that people can be more aware.
So, what are your goals?
And our main goal is to provide news and not views.
Why have you made this website when I have tons of other websites?
First of all, we are seasoned blogger and have been been blogging for more than 10 years now. We have worked with several media companies and helped them design their website and achieve other goals.
What we always thought that was missing in the new websites, that they sometimes try to provide is with their views and knowingly or unknowingly they try to influence us. In this process proving information takes a backseat.
We at India Updates, try only to provide you with news and not views. We will provide you with all the information and will let you decide.
Also we know there are tons of information available. We will try to keep the news as simple as possible and provide you only the relevant and most important news.
