Why is the project unique?
NTMN is unique, as compared to competitors, in terms of variety. It has taken news satire beyond just fake news. Not just parody, our articles feature general serious opinion at times. Also, it is arguably one of the most popular writing platforms for the youth in India. It has provided an internship program which featured dedicated training in writing and editing as well, on an individual basis. In October 2010, NTMN became the first news satire site in English to feature Hindi articles. This trend was later emulated by other competitors. The most unique aspect is that NTMN is a work by students, and student readers are able to identify this easily, thus establishing the connect.
1. Rendering popular articles to the mainstream print media on a regular basis. 2. A monthly magazine for the people who don’t use internet or don’t prefer reading online. We also plan to provide an online version of this magazine for net-savvy people at a lower price than print version. This will contribute to saving paper. 3. We have got an impressive pool of young talented writers, each with their own unique style and capability. We intend to employ and harness the same, and write a novel which would be a contribution by the team. This novel, written by multiple writers, will be different from our take on current events and the above-mentioned magazine. 4. Long-term: A full-fledged newspaper, video content for internet through a YouTube channel. 5. Short-term: Tie up with a reputed daily to write a weekly satire supplement for them.
