At the peak of the first wave of the Coronavirus pandemic, Swarajya kickstarted a new project. We were looking to raise a monthly commitment of $30,000 on the Patreon platform from our readers and patrons.
Our intention? We want to grow into a self sustaining, influential media company that is wholly dependent and answerable to its readers. We believe there's never been a better time for India to build a media company rooted in India's heritage, one that bats for India and against forces inimical to the well being and prosperity of the Indic people.
Plus, we were clear that the project is not an attempt to make ends meet but to pursue a strategy of aggressive growth and expansion. Just as old media is shrinking due to flawed business models and a lack of engaged readership, we want to commit to further engaging readers and making them part of our business model.
After about a year, we've reached one-fourth of our goal, and there's still a long way to go.
But with you, our readers, pitching in as little as $4.99, we get a lot closer to our aim.
As we affirm our renewed commitment, we request you to join us in our endeavour. You can do so via this link.
- All of us at Swarajya
As you are no doubt aware, Swarajya is a media product that is directly dependent on support from its readers in the form of subscriptions. We do not have the muscle and backing of a large media conglomerate nor are we playing for the large advertisement sweep-stake.
Our business model is you and your subscription. And in challenging times like these, we need your support now more than ever.
We deliver over 10 - 15 high quality articles with expert insights and views. From 7AM in the morning to 10PM late night we operate to ensure you, the reader, get to see what is just right.
Becoming a Patron or a subscriber for as little as Rs 1200/year is the best way you can support our efforts.
