India: Times redesigns

Agencyfaqs reports that in the face of new competition from proposed English-language newspapers, the Times of India has begun to give itself a new look. Apart from personnel changes, the major daily has improved its presentation, added more color pages and has introduced a six-page city and a four page international supplement. It's Sunday edition followed in presentation enhancements and also added new cultural and book sections. The pinksheet Economic Times is also being marketed more aggressively with news that Western financial publications such as Business Week and the Wall Street Journal are poised to enter into the Indian market (see former posting).

look at the times of india's "resigned" edit page, started today. As a 19-year-old reader of the paper, i find nothing NOTHING (all caps) new.

should anyone tell me whats new notwithstanding the fact that its former editor Gautam Adhikari has explained separately about the new look?
