Satire in the Age of Letters and Technology- more than just a pinch of it.
With journalism today acquiring more than a tinge of yellow and mighty pen wielding journalists dancing to the tunes of the Radias, we present to you an online magazine, a media for change property -The Saltlist.
Who are ‘we’ ?
‘We’ are a bunch of budding journalists who began work on this idea conceptualized by our mentor,founder and editor-in-chief, Subi Chaturvedi, in a classroom on the 1st of April 2011 and came out with the first issue on 4th April after three days of burning the midnight oil (but never the motivational fuel). We are students. You know its dedication when students meet deadlines for non – coursework related things.
‘Hello world….we are here to change you’. We are the ‘we’ here. Yes, idealistic, but hell, reality was someone’s idea. ‘We’ want to be that someone.
Why The Saltlist ?
Why not? And if not us, then who? Why wait for that ‘who’ when ‘we’ can take the reins in our hands? There is way too much happening in the world for us to keep quiet. There is way too much happeniing in OUR world for us to keep quiet. Right from opinion pieces on patriachy and despotic rulers to soulful poetry to fashion tips to grassroot ethical news reporting to random rants, The Saltlist is a multipurpose blog catering to a wide array of interests we would like to speacialize in as future journalists. We also have our very own Salt TV!
Not convinced? Let our founder, mentor and editor-in-chief Subi Chaturvedi expand on The Saltlist-
