Samadrusti Open School (SOS)
The Samadrusti Open School has come in to existence with the purpose of creating a network of grass root print and video journalists who take up reporting after knowing fully well the history, society, politics, economy, natural resources and people of Odisha. No formal degree is required to join this course and one may learn the course from anywhere in the state bout certainly not as an individual but as part of a collective of learners. About a hundred students have taken part in this course from across the state. The school will be happy if contributions are made to support the ecnomically deprived learners of the school who form the majority among the learners. The school encourages Tribal, Dalit and Rural poor to take advantage of the open learning programme. The cost per learner is quite reasonable for the students for one year Diploma Course in Journalism From Below, which has been fixed at Rs 5000 for the entire period. Even this small amount appears to be a big one for them. The cost covers teaching-learning materials, books and sharing workshops. One may get details about the school from  .

Dear Viewers,

The Samadrusti has been surviving with the support of its readers and viewers. Some of the close friends of the Editor along with their families have been standing very firmly with our group from its inception. Yet it has been a formidable challenge for this intimate media initiative to sustain itself without corporate, state and NGO support. Please be part of us and be with us. You may devise your own ways of supporting us. Overseas friends should mobilize pdf subscriptions. Rest of the friends may directly contribute towards life time subscription and gift subscriptions for people who can't afford to buy the copies. Our account details can be obtained through e.mail. This is a challenging time for non corporate media to survive and if they fail, Truth and Justice will suffer like never before. As part of our independent media initiative we have the following in the list, The Samadrusti News Fortnightly, The Gramin Samadrusti, The Madhayantara ( Video News Magazine), Documentaries, Samadrusti Open School, Samadrusti Lohia Academy Mukta Vidyalaya and we have plans for many more but it is not possible to think of anything beyond Samadrusti now. Please converse with the Editor and do the needful.

If you you want to be in touch with the Editor directly, please write to him at One part of the email id is his mobile number.
