“OUR CORE VALUE IS ALWAYS TO FEARLESSLY TELL THE TRUTH”
Media cannot be independent by using the means provided either by corporate or by the government. It is not only the corporate media which neglects the interest of common citizens of the country but government media too could not carve out public space under the so-called autonomy of Prasar Bharati. Here comes the question of economy of media. The Father of the Nation, Mahatma Gandhi said that freedom of the press cannot be retained by inviting advertisement from big business houses. He was in favor of running newspaper on the basis of subscription cost. It is difficult to follow his principle in absolute terms but that can be our motto to launch a new media movement called 'India Samvad.' This is a team of concerned journalists, citizens and professionals who believe that power of media lies in its credibility. We believe that media is part of democracy which stands on the strong value- by the people, for the people, and of the people. That is why media should never favor rich at the cost of poor, ruler at the cost of ruled, haves at the cost of have not and lies at the cost of truth. This is a new movement to make media credible, to make democracy sustainable, to minimize inequality and conflict of society and make the civilization more lasting.
Come and join us in telling the truth because it is the truth which will ultimately prevail and you have every right to know it. Please contribute, co-operate and express solidarity with us to make it a success.
