"From Resolutions to Reality! Madonna Public School, Ghana, was probably where it all started from where a young Indian boy received his schooling. Growing up in this west-African nation, he observed how his parents, both doctors, worked tirelessly for the welfare of the local people. Somehow, he felt a sense of belonging and warmth in this foreign land. Little had he thought that this thread of affection would guide him to weave a lifelong relationship with the African continent. He resolved to work for this dynamic demography and turned it into a reality. Cut to 2018 and here we are! Celebrating 10 years of ‘The Times of Africa’. As the sunset rolls and we get a year older, we look back in anticipation, acknowledge and appreciate this journey through our ‘10th Anniversary Special’ feature. The year 2017 has been unpredictable, to say the least, as long-established norms have been broken and transitions - political, economic, and social – have taken place all over the continent. Our Cover Story ‘Zimbabwe Shall Rise Again’ highlights the first army intervention in the country’s politics since it gained independence from Britain in 1980 and the dramatic change in leadership that followed. For over a decade, we have defied stereotypes and redrawn the lines to provide extensively researched reliable content for our robust readership network that includes diplomatic missions, intergovernmental organisations corporate and export houses, and international institutions. Through all these years, our association with ambassadors and the esteemed staff members of all the embassies of Africa in India and the Indian diplomatic missions in Africa has only strengthened with time. And the year 2018 not only marks our 10th anniversary but also is a pivotal juncture in the relationship that we have with Africa. From here, we herald towards an era of new beginnings. The name of a publication stands tall only because of its readers."
