Foundation of The Billion Press
We are a non-profit (section 8 company under The Companies Act, 2013, in India) noted for our edit page columns in leading newspapers. We write with a focus on everyday people and with the objective of bringing to light people less seen, voices less heard and perspectives less argued. 'The Billion' in our name refers to the billion and more people who make up India. We like to argue that GDP growth is not a panacea and development should go hand-in-hand with well-being to enable people lead happy, fulfilling and enriching lives.
We are in the midst of executing exciting projects that will enable us reach niche audience segments, notably the youth, in areas of a) health, b) education, c) governance and d) contemporary Indian history as reflected through the digital archives of Indian newspapers.
