Birthdays are special, but this particular birthday I am writing about is extra special. Having started its journey in 1995, your favourite Outlook has turned 24—just one short of its silver jubilee, and we are rightfully in a celebratory mood. In the years gone by, we have recorded history and made some ourselves, such as the expose on the betting scandal that shook up the cricketing world. Besides surviving the tough economics of a crowded media landscape, we have educated, enthralled, engaged and embraced both appreciation and opprobrium, and earned what I believe a deserving back pat or two.

The credit for Outlook’s achievements goes to its previous editors who helped shepherd this organisation—no less than an institution now—through rain and shine. Being a member of the Outlook family for no more than a year and half, I see myself more as a custodian of the high values and gold standard that my predecessors set for us. But nothing comes easy and whatever heights Outlook scaled have been hard-earned. Our editorial calls have mostly been solid and have stood the test of time. In some, we did slip and continue to make amends by admitting our guilt, swallowing our pride. But one constant through this unfinished journey has been Outlook’s honest intent. Never has our intention to pursue good, honest and fair journalism been under a cloud.
