ABOUT US

 

''Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high
Where knowledge is free
Where the world has not been broken up into fragments
By narrow domestic walls
Where words come out from the depth of truth
Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection
Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way
Into the dreary desert sand of dead habit
Where the mind is led forward by thee
Into ever-widening thought and action
Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country awake.''

 

- 'Prathona' a poem by Rabindranath Tagore, Nobel Laureate and Poet

 

At 'Manorama News’, our beliefs and actions, our concerns and convictions are a reflection of these lines penned by Tagore. We refuse to believe that the decibel level of soundbytes from the Television news studios are a measure of quality journalism and are a mark of balanced and fair debate. Yet, we never fail to raise the voice for the weak and downtrodden, the oppressed and marginalised and the unheard. At every such instance we ensure our unstrained and unrestrained voice on their behalf are heard by the powerful, mighty, and those in authority so that justice is neither denied nor delayed.
