The name we opted for is inspired from a pro Independence newspaper co-founded by the first President of India Dr. Rajendra Prasad in the 20th century. It denotes the light that seeks the truth. The newspaper was acquired by Birla Group and was shut down in 1986.
We too, like our forefathers, seek that righteous and ethical path towards the facts; and this inspired us to select this name as our venture towards the fight with misinformation.
