Editorial collective, Sanhati (Online magazine)

Sanhati’s aim is to provide a platform for evolving news, analyses, debates pertaining to the political economy of India and the world, with special emphasis on West Bengal. Struggle against corporate capital and upholding democratic rights of people are the prime objectives, along with our participation in the search for alternatives. Our endeavour is to give a voice to progressive reporting that is often unrepresented in, and ignored by, the corporate media, with a cautious eye on the objectivity of reporting. We invite activists/writers/journalists to contribute to our online journal. All submissions will be reviewed by our editors before getting published. Articles would be suitably copy-edited to improve readability.
