At’Manorama News’,our beliefs and actions, our concerns and convictions are a reflection of these lines penned by Tagore. We refuse to believe that the decibel level of soundbytes from the Television news studios are a measure of quality journalism and are a mark of balanced and fair debate. Yet, we never fail to raise the voice for the weak and downtrodden, the oppressed and marginalised and the unheard. At every such instance we ensure our unstrained and unrestrained voice on their behalf are heard by the powerful, mighty, and those in authority so that justice is neither denied nor delayed.
