MAST-HEAD5Every day when you wake up in a good mood, watching the rising sun, hearing birds chirping and sipping the first tea, the bliss suddenly seems to break, with the sight of a newspaper. The colourful details of killings, rapes, murders, suicide, bombing, etc turn the hopeful morning, into a day of hopelessness and fear.

While we say ‘no news is good news’, for the media ‘good news is no news’. In today’s world, news of rapes, crimes, murders, accidents, suicides, etc dominate all media, creating sensation all around. Result, a sense of fear and doubt prevails in society, people shy away from trusting others, citizens are losing confidence on themselves, the system and the society. If today’s youth grows and lives in fear, they can never contribute positively to society and the country.

‘The Optimist Citizen’ is a Newspaper presenting Good News ranging from inspiring stories, to stories of unsung heroes, good governance, achievements, acts of courage, and everything that can create optimism and bring back hope in society. It is a newspaper that chooses to bury all the bad and negative news, by bringing out positive stories from around the globe, to show that there is more good happening than bad. “The Optimist Citizen” is neither an investment by a big firm nor a sister paper of some leading daily, but is an outcome of frustration of youth channelizing their energies in the right direction.

Through our newspaper we wish to bring you positive news, demonstrating the best of humankind, even in difficult and tragic situations. Whilst the national and global media keeps us informed of world events, unfortunately the only news we hear or see, all too often leading to gloom and doom. The Optimist Citizen seeks to bring to light those inspirational stories that are often not picked up by the TV Channels or newspapers, as they do not create sensation, but have great stories behind them. The Optimist Citizen will prove, that the world is a much better place, than what we read, hear, see and think.

The mission of The Optimist Citizen is to Initiate and stimulate Positive Actions by the virtue of Positive Stories. The Optimist Citizen aims to inculcate and induce hope and optimism in society, so that our readers start their day cheerfully.

We have done more than 400 positive stories of unsung heroes, extraordinary achievers, good acts, initiatives, innovations and projects and have been able to create a huge positive impact. We are trying to let our readers know that, there is so much good happening in this country and we can do so much more. We aim to inculcate and induce hope and optimist in the society so that our readers start their day cheerfully.
