The Indian News is a young portal preserving the old values of journalism. The transition of print media to other platforms such as digital and visual spaces are happening in frenetic pace. There are umpteen online domains, either started on their own or the replica of the established print media players. Many of these online portals churn out only whatever news that is happening or aim at increasing the footfalls by adding spicy subjects. Few online media groups are doing niche subjects too.
The thought of how The Indian News can bring about a difference gave credence to the tagline: News With a Difference. True to our tagline, the team of youngsters at The Indian News is striving to achieve that difference. Here, the focus would be good governance, in addition to political news, The Indian News will also focus on human interest stories and write about people who have accomplished great feats and about the unknown hidden talents. We cover Literature, Art Forms, Performing Arts, Music, Movie, Healthcare, Education and a whole lot of subjects relating to civic society. Rather than writing only about established celebrities, TIN will focus on hidden talents and bring them to high circuit echelons of society.
The Indian News will also extensively cover the Indian diaspora, who live across the globe, their achievements in various spheres. The revenue model of The Indian News is simple. We focus on a slew of dance schools, music schools, movie and entertainment industry and we except advertisements to be placed on our homepage on a monthly basis. We don’t subscribe to paid news, hence write-up in lieu of advertisement is a strict NO.
