Font Problem

The font used in Pravasabhumi site is Meera Unicode. If you are using Internet Explorer, you will be able to see the site properly, even if this font is not installed in your computer. But, for other browsers such as Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox, installation of Meera font is a compulsion for a proper visibility of the site.
