About Us

Who Are We?

The Bastion, founded in 2017, is an independent development journalism platform. We publish development-specific analyses, ideas, debates, and reportage, that shed light on the issues at the centre of India’s development narrative.

Our Mission

In recent times, sensationalism, controversy, and the race to disseminate news first has resulted in the swift and dangerous decline of well-researched and informed opinions available in the media. This is especially the case in India. 

To combat this trend, we produce one piece of content every weekday, which allows us to prioritize research and well-grounded journalism over and above anything else. At The Bastion, we aim to bring you India-centric stories that may not always make it to prime time television or the front pages of newspapers, but nevertheless lie at the core of the nation’s future growth and development.
