On the day politicians count their seats in the Karnataka assembly elections, the 65-year-old Kannada daily newspaper Praja Vani, from the Deccan Herald group, has a page one, colour-coded graphic that chronicles the journeys undertaken by its reporters to bring the poll to its readers.
The final score: over 27 days, 10 reporters (including three women) travelled 15,000 kilometres to bring 66 spot reports.
Dinesh Amin Mattoo, Praja Vani‘s well-regarded former Delhi bureau chief, now an assistant editor based in Bangalore (represented in red), alone travelled 4,150 km across 14 of the State’s 30 districts.

That’s nice, but had Prajavani predicted these results?
