The technical side is easy. The main problems are: where does the content come from, and how will people be persuaded to go to the site? Not to mention how it will be funded.

A news site generally displays, well, news, right? That's the content - where does it come from?

Unless you have people for that (reporters, editors, and so on) you'll probably have to buy it from companies like Reuters, AP, etc. They'll have APIs that your site can access.

Ankit,
This is the type of reserach you need to do if you are serious about starting this. Look at the sites mentioned above (Reuters/AP). Ask them what the pricing is for their feeds.

I know you want to implement it in Java EE, but if you have can consider another option, I really recommend Django framework.
This framework really shines for newspaper sites (it was extracted from journal web application).

Ankit,
If you are looking for the news to be in Hindi, you would want to use a Hindi based news service rather than Reuters/AP. Those feeds are going to be in English as far as I know.
