Twenty years of The Independent

Twenty years is not a very long period of  time especially when juxtaposed with the history of time which stretches into infinity. However for a newspaper (and an English one at that) to not only survive but also flourish over 20 years in our context is by any definition a significant achievement. The Independent after twenty years of its existence is most proud of the fact that it has achieved the trust of its readers. This newspaper, true to its name, has been independent in its presentation of news and analysis. This is one newspaper, the readers will agree, where truth and journalistic ethics are considered as inviolable. The high standard of this newspaper is also reflected in the fact by our journalist’ winning various important awards.  
The launching of The Independent was quite an event as the neat looking daily instantly drew the attention of all and sundry. This newspaper has been a trendsetter in the English language print media in various ways. For the fist time, an English language daily brought out a weekend magazine, a youth tabloid and a medical supplement. These were things that attracted the readers. Above, all, the news­paper always followed a sensible and balanced line, carefully avoiding sensationalism. Over the years it has maintained its core values and at the same time adapted itself perfectly with the changing trends in the media. It is a newspaper whose management and the senior journalists have always encouraged the implementa­tion of innovative ideas.
It is a matter of pride for those who  have been with The Independent for the last 20 years that the newspaper never acted under the influence of vested interests. It has always taken the path of constructive journalism. Cheap shots and saucy stories have never been part of The Independent’s repertoire.
It is a fact that people want more news and information today than ever before. They also want it in different ways — in print, on the air, on the Web. As long as news providers give it to them when they want it, where they want it and how they want it, they not only will survive but also thrive. And that includes newspapers, if they also adapt to new ways of  treatment of the news, which they generally gather more professionally than any other media. That has always been the print media’s main strength and The Independent looks towards the future with hope and a positive attitude.
On this occasion we extend our sincere gratitude to our vendors, printers, advertisers and readers and urge them to support our development and growth in the years to come.
