Have Questions?

Why India needs more independent media platforms?

Independent Media always works for the interest of  people. It is free from any corporate investor or political interference. No one can force an independent media organisation to run or drop a story. With such freedom of press, the government and the ones in power are compelled to be more transparent and accountable to the citizens of the country.

India lags behind in Media Literacy – a term, many of us are not even familiar with. Today, smartphones have taken over television sets and newspapers to become the primary source of information and misinformation. In India, where WhatsApp forwards are consumed and shared as news, and social media is filled with fake and misleading news, it is now critical more than ever that we have media sans bias and propaganda.

Why should I bother if the media is fair or not?

Because media can manipulate people, it shapes and influences the public opinion.

In our country, majority of the established media groups are owned by big corporations and politicians. They control the channels/publishers to feature/drop/tweak a news story in order to condition the public sentiment for or against any government/govt policy/politician/accused, etc.

The media affects almost everything in and around us, which has a direct or indirect implication on our livelihood and our future. Media is the backbone of a country hence, called the fourth pillar of democracy. When the media is at stake, each of us needs to ensure its freedom.

Why do you need funds?

Every organisation needs funds to function. Funds from the right source ensure the integrity of the organization is never compromised.

For the past 5 years, we have been working hard to bring to you attention-worthy news and issues which are ignored by the conventional media. We feel overwhelmed to look back at the impact we were able to create with our stories, propelled with the incredible support from our community members. We aspire to do more, serve more.

Good journalism is expensive to produce and your contribution helps us to:

  • Sustain our operational expenditure, get the best talents and tools, take up more people-issues, running influential public-interest campaigns.

  • Report more under-reported stories by localizing our reach.

Most importantly, your contributions will enable us to function independently and always work toward your interest.

But then you show ads too?

Most of us won’t mind paying for Netflix or Hotstar but will think twice before paying for news, and that’s where the problem arises! Not everyone who loves and appreciates our news would want to make a contribution. Globally, it is seen, hardly 1-4% of a publisher’s reader base commits to payment.

Quality journalism costs a lot of money. Because enough people don’t show up for support, we have to rely on both the revenue streams to meet our entire operational expenditures.

We have stringent advertising policies and only work with a limited number of brands to promote only meaningful contents. All such paid contents are labeled as “Paid”. Our promise is to keep advertising to minimum, if not zero.

I cannot afford to pay, would I still be able to read your news and stories?

We are not here to sell you stories. Your contribution is towards enabling us to function independently and amplifying our impact-driven journalism.

We would never limit access to those who can’t afford to pay as we believe, news and information should always be free and accessible. The right information always empowers people, enables them to take an informed decision on matters which can impact their livelihood.

India tops the chart in the global list of Most Ignorant Nations. Together, it’s our responsibility to make India more informed and less ignorant.

The media reports news.
And then there's news which you should know.
