Mumbai Mirror? what’s it ? It is a daily tabloid published by Times of India (Bennett Coleman) group, I have read the paper couple of times, not a regular reader at all….I prefer Mid-Day πŸ™‚

So now back to topic, I was reading review on mumbai mirror on the net, it was good review, giving light on small small errors they make in the papers, these errors include spelling mistakes, grammatical mistakes etc…

So I too got excited about finding these errors and believe me it did not take more than 10 seconds to find first spelling mistake and that too from home page of their website.

The article was about No entry for Miandad in India, I just copied the text and pasted in Microsoft Word and found the first spelling mistake… πŸ˜€

here it goes…

…Though the wedding may take place in Karachi, the two families are likely to organise a reception and dinner in Dubai too to enable participation of Dawood’s Indian friends, among them Bollywood personalities and business tycoons, surces said…

Ok, we can consider this as rare mistake, not a problem….let’s check some other page….

I checked 2nd page, Dress decent: VC says it can provoke rape!, again did the same thing, pasted in word…and again it did not take more than 10 seconds to find out those words with red underline… lol

here it goes…

…tee-shirts that rise above the navel and trousers that sag below the waistline are a no-no.Khole expects that after the meeting, the prinicipals will convey the university’s concern on improper dressing in campuses to students…

ok one more…

…students who wear “inappropiate” clothes are pulled up and their parents are called…

ok aur ek ho jaye (one more) πŸ˜‰

…students are asked to apologise and pay a fine if they are found dressed inappropiately

I did not bother to check other articles but still they should consider this seriously, even a guy like me running a personal blog checks for spelling mistakes in Microsoft Word (now i have online spell checker :D) and they are publishing a news paper which is ready by thousands of people daily….still they don’t care to check for their spelling errors…
