Most big companies start from a garage. At least that’s what the owners of those companies would have us believe. I cannot say the same for two reasons. Chanakya Forum is still in its infancy and I don’t have a garage.
Today, as I take over as Editor-in-Chief of Chanakya Forum, I would like to thank the Chanakya Forum team, every member exceptionally diligent and capable. I would like to thank our readers who have been extremely supportive. Without you, there is no Chanakya Forum and no journey to talk about.
We are a small team with a big dream. A few months ago, it was almost unimaginable but here we are, fighting the good fight and bringing Foreign Affairs, Geopolitics, and National Security to the common Indian. We must be that rare publication that has no journalist writing articles for it. All our articles are written by subject matter experts, individuals with tremendous public credibility and decades of relevant experience. Diplomats, Generals, Academicians, Analysts and PhD scholars from India, Israel, USA and UK have honored us by writing for our magazine. And you, dear reader, have honored us by reading and quoting those articles.
Today is also the day when we officially start our relationship with ANI News, South Asia’s Leading News Agency. We are sanguine that this relationship will take us from strength to strength. Suddenly, as if by magic, a sea of possibilities has opened up. It promises to be interesting tomorrow.
We hope to launch our Hindi section soon. One day, you will read Chanakya Forum in Bangla, Malayalam, Tamil, and Marathi. Who knows what the future holds? As I said, we are a small team with a big dream. My friend Manoj Muntashir once wrote these lines which have always been a beacon of hope in my darkest days.
About Chanakya Forum
Chanakya Forum is a global magazine on Geopolitics, Foreign Affairs and National Security founded by Major Gaurav Arya (Retd), who is also its Chief Executive Officer.
Chanakya Forum is global in its outlook, but its soul is quintessentially Indian. We seek to analyze not just how the world looks at India, but also how India looks at the world; the relationships between nations and the undercurrents and tensions that often mar those relationships. We also try to constantly analyze and re-analyze the famous dictum that between nations, there are no permanent friends or enemies, only permanent interests.
We seek to use social media to proliferate knowledge to the proverbial last man in the line and believe that for change to happen, knowledge must be democratized. For far too long, knowledge has been guarded by a few for the benefit of a fewer, still. That must change.
Chanakya Forum will generate synergy by partnering with global think tanks and publications that are renowned for their credibility, analysis and exceptional intellectual rigor.
We at Chanakya Forum will ensure that our readers remain our center of gravity and our authors, our guiding light.
At Chanakya Forum, our dreams are beyond our wildest dreams. There, I have said it.
I thank you for being a part of this wonderful journey and pray that this journey is a long and fruitful one. Maybe one day I will be able to talk about my nonexistent garage.
