We are extremely happy to re-launch Rajaji’s SWATANTRA Magazine – online on this auspicious Diwali day. Diwali – the festival of light – symbolises the prosperity, happiness and enlightenment.
We therefore feel Diwali is the right day to launch our SWATANTRA magazine, as our prime objective is to create an enlightened society through Responsible Citizens and Good Governance.
Create awareness amongst the citizens on important issues of national and international importance
Finding Intellectual, Long term sustainable solutions for issues through Responsible Citizenry & Good Governance
Minimum Government & Maximum Governance is the key for prosperity and hence to publish articles and analysis based on this factor.
Create a platform for the Responsible Citizens and Administrators & Politicians to engage in intellectual discussion and share their ideas & thoughts.
Rajaji & Swatantra
Poojya Rajaji, Freedom fighter, Statesman and one of the greatest intellectuals this country has produced always stood for Minimum Government & Maximum Governance. He suggested SWATANTRA as the Newspaper name in the year 1942 when Kasa Subba Rao approached him with the idea to launch a newspaper. Later in the year 1957 Rajaji started SWATANTRA party. His thoughts and ideas are more relevant today and he was simply ahead of his times.
As followers of his ideology, we have decided to re-launch SWATANTRA and continue the work of Rajaji, as we believe implementing his idea is the best way to pay our respects.
I have great pleasure in introducing the team behind this magazine and efforts.
