Images from Goregaon

Citizen photo journalism can be a potent force in disseminating information quickly. Ashish Panchal, a resident of Goregaon East, Mumbai has some photographs of the impact of the floods. He has hosted these photographs on his independent website and is currently being forwarded via chain emails. Although the pictures are at best amatuerish in quality yet they give a real sense of the tragedy. He also has aggregated different news items from the mainstream media.

I hope we can discover more such examples of citizen journalism - unbiased and pure.
