    Greetings!  Hope you're doing well.  

    We are a team of 20 members who are showing their potential for the fulfilment of customer’s requirements in Digital Publishing. Invida Trans IT Solutions Pvt. Ltd, Kolkata has been engaged in successfully providing copy-editing services for the last 10 years. The CE team comprises those members who mostly had relevant experiences in the similar field.  A number of copy-editors have an exposure of working with big organizations of repute. I would like to convey that we have been working with a number of eminent international publishers as a second-order service provider – Elsevier (books and journals), LWW, MedKnow, Springer, Taylor & Francis, Educreation, etc., to name a few. We are also associated with SPI, Philippines, as a direct service provider, and are successfully providing our copy-editing service for the prestigious RSC (London) journals.

    We are well versed with the requirement of work – language wise (both US and UK) and technicality wise. In addition, we are working with LaTex projects on the BaKoma TeX platform.

     I can assure you that we could deliver the required level of professional quality with a strict adherence to schedule fidelity.

    If you would like to send us a page of your work (email to koushik@invidasolutions.com), we'll send you a sample of how we work.

    Looking forward to receiving an optimistic response.

    Best regards,

    In 1989 when I worked for the weekly "Pakistan & Gulf Economist '' in the capacity of Senior Reporter I along with my colleague Bushra Jabbar Khan went to Pakistan Institute of International Affairs to attend a lecture of Prof. Stephen Cohen. There was some tension between Pakistan and India. Muhammad Ali Siddiqi, one of the senior most editors of Dawn asked Prof. Stephen Cohen: "Will there be a war between Pakistan and India?" Prof. Cohen replied: "Prior to the 1965 war somebody asked me the same question and I said No and there was war. Prior to the 1971 war somebody asked me the same question and I said No and there was war. I am again saying NO." I was amused. At tea break I asked Prof. Stephen Cohen to give me his business card. He gave me his business card. I handed it over to my colleague Bushra Jabbar Khan who now lives in Chicago. She was very anxious to go abroad. For a long time I and Prof. Stephen Cohen would exchange mails. Some 10 years ago when I was in the US my friend Tim Kennedy of Strategic Policy Group mailed me a list of all the Washington-based think tanks and I got myself registered in left-of-center Prof. Stephen Cohen's think tank as a scholar. Suddenly my youngest daughter Aliza Husain, who is very attached to me, sent me an email stating: "Pappa agar aap wapas nahi aye tu mein America aa jaon gi." I sent an email to Tim Kennedy stating:"Tim, I am going home. First I will join a Pakistani think tank and then come to the US again.' He replied: "Shahid, Is there any reliable think tank in Pakistan?" Once I sought opinion about Prof. Stephen Cohen from Dr. Masuma Hasan, chairperson, PIIA. She said: "Arey aesa hey hey." I have been a member of PIIA since 1973 and would study there from 2pm to 8pm. I worked at the Creative Cell" of Soviet Press & Information Department, Karachi. (July 1973-1980). I resigned from the Soviet PID on my own accord. Thereafter I worked for many publications, including The Guardian newspaper and fortnightly Down to Earth, India. I have resumed writing for The News International.
