Then, she also introduced us to the various challenges encountered by the journalists. On the next day, we were told how to make reports and we were given various topics to make report. Further, we were divided into teams and given various stories to work upon. The topic given to my group was, 'The Productivity Puzzle: The Key Economic Issue of Our Age'.

Then we were told how to cover stories and there was a hypothetical session to cover the story on spread of Nipah virus in Kerala. Also, we were told how to make reports, cover and edit various stories ranging from crime to entertainment. On the other day we were taught how to design colourful, reader-friendly pages.
