Daily news analysis consists of two parts – Daily News and Important Editorials. VajiraoIAS cover Daily News by choosing the most relevant topics from a number of newspapers like The Hindu, Livemint, The Indian Express etc. plus a variety of national and international news websites like PIB, BBC, Al Jazeera, CNN etc. All news items are properly highlighted, bulletised and tagged for easy reading and research. Sometimes we also include relevant info-graphics and diagrams in these news items. Similarly, for Important Editorials we rely on very trustworthy sources – though mostly national, like The Hindu and Livemint – for our daily cover. We keep editorials as short and precise as it would permit. We also bulletise certain points of importance to make the articles more presentable.
