BOTTOM LINE : With TOI’s Common Man (remember R K Laxman’s Common Man) gone, TOI today is (un)common. Spreading, insidious Rumors have it that in the coming days, very soon (?), TOI ‘ll fold up. Its other businesses will remain. After that, new Times of India under Roberto Mindo will begin “Internationalised Indian Edition”, simultaneously printed from New Delhi, Mumbai, New York, Washington, Los Angeles,Milan, Rome, Venice, Verona, Trieste, Bari, Messina, Florence, Padova, Turin, Ferrari, Rimini, Cagliari, Naples etc. The motto behind it will be to make India, its people fully synonymous with Italians in every nook and corner of Italy. The necessity of it can well be guessed.
