About Us

Lokmaanya literally means approved and loved by the people. India’s first Nobel Laureate Rabindranath Tagore gave this coveted title to the legendary freedom fighter Bal Gangadhar Tilak, one of the few leaders who appealed to the entire Indian subcontinent.

The fiery leader packed a punch in India’s freedom struggle and brought it to the masses across the Indian subcontinent. His bold, undaunting writing captured the imagination of the people and stirred them into action. His appeal and impact spread across British India like wildfire.

Till date, the Indian subcontinent has seen thousands of maharajas, hundreds of netas, and even two Mahatmas, but only one Lokmaanya.

Drawing inspiration from Lokmanya Tilak’s connect with the masses, bold writings, and pan-subcontinental presence, Lokmaanya is an online media portal that brings forth the stories of India and its neighbourhood. India’s neighbourhood broadly consists of the Indian subcontinent, South East Asia, the Gulf and Central Asia.

Lokmaanya will highlight stories of and from India, its immediate neighbourhood, and its extended neighbourhood.

Why Are We Doing This? (Our Purpose)

Why Stories?

Simply put, the appeal of a story is universal. It is captivating, memorable, and often, more insightful than matter-of-fact information. It can start a conversation, connect people, and play a positive role in establishing cross-cultural trust.
