Articles or stories on this website are classified into three categories – Vidura, Grassroots and RIND Survey – based on the names of our journals. Vidura and Grassroots, however, are no longer printed.
Vidura, a quarterly, has been in publication since 1963. Articles under the Vidura umbrella focus primarily on pertinent issues relating to the media. Many of the articles are from established writers, senior editors, journalists and academicians. They offer a platform for exchange of news and views on a wide spectrum of developments in the media and outside.
Grassroots, a monthly, has been in publication since 1999. Under the Grassroots umbrella, we look at a range of social development issues, with the thrust on women achievers and their fight against the odds, as well as on children and the environment. There are stories from across India’s heartland and most of them strike a chord. In many ways, it echoes the voices from India’s vast rural areas.
Now in the digital avatar, Vidura and Grassroots will continue to cover vital issues affecting the lives of the majority of people living in India, which mainstream media is really not in a position to cover substantially.
RIND Survey, the monthly trade journal that is still in print, continues to focus on the technical aspects relating to newspaper printing and production. In recent years, this has expanded to include developments in print-packaging and social media. The coverage is wide, with reports being featured from around the world, on technical and other developments in the industry impacting publishers and editors everywhere.
