TTC aspires to be a leading independent and intellectual platform through digital media. Just like bright and bold young Indians who are increasingly comfortable in their own skin, TTC looks at India and the world through an authentic Indian lens.
TTC’s mission is to be a non-propagandist, non-partisan and nationalistic platform promoting fresh, assertive, and honest opinions on, and analyses of, the trends and challenges facing Indian society.
Why non-propagandist, non-partisan, nationalistic?
TTC draws inspiration from the many values and virtues of Lokmanya Tilak. Among other things, Lokmanya Tilak was a staunch nationalist who carried his message of self-rule across the length and breadth of the subcontinent, and envisioned India, with all its diversity, as one united entity. Fiercely independent, Tilak’s journalism was characterised by compelling reasoning, fearlessness and high intellect. These, combined with the ideals of democracy and authenticity, form the core of TTC’s conscience.
Non-Propagandist – Misinformation and fabricated news are among the biggest challenges faced by media globally. TTC firmly believes in democratisation of authentic information. TTC will publish opinions and analyses that are backed by well researched facts. It is not a mouthpiece for any political party, organisation or individual. TTC believes that propaganda in any form is dangerous and goes against the very essence of mass media.
Non-Partisan – TTC is a platform which brings together people of all ideologies to stimulate ideas for the greater good of the nation. The vastness and inherent diversity of India have created numerous, varied and sometimes diametrically opposite affiliations, ideologies and biases across fields. TTC aims to facilitate a dialogue between all these affiliations, ideologies and biases, while the platform itself will be free of them.
Nationalism – TTC encourages a “nation first” mindset, which actively promotes the interests of the people, environment, culture, economy, security, sovereignty and global position of India. It stands for nationalism which is inclusive of all sections of the Indian society, sensitive to their grievances, and appreciative of their diversity.
TTC promotes a “nation first” mindset and will always speak in national interest.
