Standpoint India is an editorial, founded with the objective of reflecting India’s diverse realities through disciplined sourcing of opinions, analysis, critiques and knowledge on a wide range of topics that concern the Indian citizenry.


We envision for our readers a deeper, data-driven understanding of India’s socio-political, economic, cultural and technology related developments, and maintain a zero-tolerance policy against insincere criticism of any institution, public or private.

Standpoint India sees no reason why young adults must be denied the opportunity to actively contribute their thoughts to institutions of public discourse.

To enable their participation (below 22 years of age) in building and fostering an ecosystem which caters to issues of specific relevance, including but not limited to matters of social or national interest, we have conceived the  YoungThinkers section.

Submissions to this section can be made here.
