VANTAGE- the annual publication by the Department of Communication was officially launched today. The magazine is a part of the coursework of the students from the Print and New media Stream.

The occasion was graced by the Head of the Department, Kanchan K Malik, and other senior faculties, along with students from both first and second year.

This year, the magazine has aimed to unearth the different shades of belongingness in Hyderabad, considering the city has ranked first in the country again, in Mercer’s Quality of Living. The student reporters have provided their readers a balanced amalgamation of both, the positive and negative, aspects of the city. The stories range from art districts to the life of garbage disposers. Focus has also been put on Hyderabad’sgrowing cosmopolitan culture and how the natives have welcomed people from across the state.

The team of Vantage is extremely thankful for the advice and support given by the Editorial Advisor, Professor Anjali Lal Gupta, and Design Advisor Sadhana Ramchander. A special mention goes out to the students from the first year and the Radio and Video Production stream for their contribution to the stunning images that have been used in the magazine.
