Story link: http://www.goodnewsindia.com/index.php/the-mission
The main purpose of goodnewsindia.com is to persuade that there is more to India than the stream of depressing stories projects her to be,
To establish a niche for the dissemination of stories that inspire hope in the future of India, a confidence in her abilities and an appreciation of her as a sensitive civilisation.
To show-case the heroic efforts of thousands of little known men, women and institutions, while skirting celebrities, politicians, political parties, prima-donnas and publicity-hunters.
To qualify as a site which Indians visit with their children repeatedly to be reassured that idealism and affirmative action have not disappeared entirely.
To create a community that will participate in the growth and maintenance of this site’s endeavour.
To host only those stories that are well-researched and are without hype or jingoism.
To serve as a complete and reliable database of contact information for the persons and places covered by the stories.
To become a site with the least clutter, offering a pleasant viewing experience, displaying well-chosen advertisers unobtrusively placed, and devoid of any hustling to sign-up its visitors or to peddle products and services.
Least of all, to run goodnewsindia.com on sound business lines but without any great anxiety about revenue issues.
