Last December (2014) we had taken a tough decision when we launched our gloomy ‘Fight the plague: RAPE’ edition on December 29th (the day when we failed Nirbhaya & she succumbed to death, leaving us all with her spirit to fight). We were told to step back and not think like patriots or activists. We didn’t listen to the sales team ( they said they will not be able to bring revenue for such an edition) or the editorial experts (who said that the readership of the magazine will fall drastically): they both were right for we didn’t make money and our readership numbers fell too (in comparison to issues on other themes). But we felt we had done the right thing for we’d reached a handful who promised to fight for this cause & keep the anger alive. More the voices, more the awareness. The blitz of words must continue: Our guest editor, Promod Puri had signed off his edit note for the ‘Fight the plague: RAPE’ edition last year. So this December too when we found ourselves facing the same turmoil we left it to our readers to decide if we should celebrate the New Year with a fresh edition or use this time to reach a few more hundreds and make a small difference. Our readers (via a poll) suggested that even if were able to educate one mind on the issue & stand up to fight for the cause it would be worth it. So, here we are back with our edition from the last year and asking a simple question: Has anything changed? Yes and No. Have we lost hope? No. In the year 2015, we are not going to moan and complain; instead we are going to educate & fight. And yes we are also going to celebrate the ‘new’ INDIA: the INDIA, which is not scared to speak up.
