What type of articles, poems or even views are looked in TOI?
Don’t look for saturated topics like “How to perform well in an examination” or even like “IPL News and Stats”, “Online Shopping Revolution”. These topics are saturated and will attract no readers even if you have written a fine tuned article.
Look for topics that are helpful in the regular world, will benefit people and understanding the level of problems among the people. These shall enlighten your views more strongly and will look precise and in-depth. Example: “Tips to tune your mind, body and soul in weekends”, “Will Indian cricket survive after MS Dhoni” , “Ways to double-fold your PPF Savings in 10 years”.
