For my generation, which had grown up reading Junior Statesman, Illustrated Weekly, Sunday and India Today, Outlook was a refreshing change from predictable weeklies. In a sense, it was a throwback to the heyday of Sunday Observer which managed to dazzle and impress week after week even when there wasn’t much happening. I guess Vinod Mehta could do that with any paper he edited.

What set Outlook apart were its amazing ability to come up with unpredictable covers and a sizzling mix of ‘hard’ and ‘soft’ stories. Also, no other publication ever gave so much space for feedback, most of it harshly critical and mildly abusive.
