The World Reporter

I started blogging as a hobby when I was pursuing my degree in Mechanical Engineering. Receiving motivation from the readers, I shaped a startup students’ journal – The World Reporter, which is doing well at the basic level. I built a small management team, recruited interns and accepted contributions from around the world. I left my job at IBM and came altogether into development (administration and design), promotion and creating content for the journal. Working here full time, I experienced increase in our revenue, traffic, and Alexa ranking. We achieved new sponsors, recognition from various universities and institutes including a formal tie up with Lund University of Sweden under the category of selected internet based magazines, and journals on South Asia.

The World Reporter is an open online students’ journal with a motive of making news media open and more free, changing the traditional way of how news is delivered. Students are the most active and promising pillar of a democracy, The World Reporter provide students around the world an established platform to express their views on the global issues or the issues in their country that needs international attention.

  • Ukraine: East Vs West

    Amidst the ongoing crisis in Ukraine, our research aims to understand what native Ukrainians really think

    While Ukraine is in the midst of a crisis, foreign media have been doing their best to propagate their own propaganda. Western media came out to the full support of European Union and the protests, whereas Russian media did their best criticizing the protests and supporting the Ukrainian government.

    At the time when divided media is dividing public opinion, it is very important to understand what actually is happening in Ukraine. For this reason, we surveyed native Ukrainians asking their opinion on recent protests and we got mixed responses as we had expected.

    The survey was done asking a set of questions in person, on website and on social media from people belonging to different age groups, genders and regions of Ukraine.
