Though the media sector in Odisha is dominated by corporations and political and business families of Odisha, there are a few media initiatives one comes across in the state capital and western part of the state who survive without any corporate patronage. They include Sarvodaya from Cuttack ( founded by late Manmohan Chaudhury), Viklapa Vichar (Founded by late Kisan Pattnaik) a periodical on pertinent social issues, Anwesha- a periodical from Sambalpur with quality articles on social and political issues, Manishar Bartabaha Swabhiman a fortnightly from Berhampur on similar issues, Nishan- a periodical from Bhubaneswar on socio-political issues, Charchha- a periodical on social issues, Rudra Ahawan from Bolangir and Gana Istahar from Bargarh and Ban-Tulsi from Kalahandi are also reaching out to villagers in a the region. The list is indicative and not exhaustive.

Dear Viewers,

The Samadrusti has been surviving with the support of its readers and viewers. Some of the close friends of the Editor along with their families have been standing very firmly with our group from its inception. Yet it has been a formidable challenge for this intimate media initiative to sustain itself without corporate, state and NGO support. Please be part of us and be with us. You may devise your own ways of supporting us. Overseas friends should mobilize pdf subscriptions. Rest of the friends may directly contribute towards life time subscription and gift subscriptions for people who can't afford to buy the copies. Our account details can be obtained through e.mail. This is a challenging time for non corporate media to survive and if they fail, Truth and Justice will suffer like never before. As part of our independent media initiative we have the following in the list, The Samadrusti News Fortnightly, The Gramin Samadrusti, The Madhayantara ( Video News Magazine), Documentaries, Samadrusti Open School, Samadrusti Lohia Academy Mukta Vidyalaya and we have plans for many more but it is not possible to think of anything beyond Samadrusti now. Please converse with the Editor and do the needful.

If you you want to be in touch with the Editor directly, please write to him at One part of the email id is his mobile number.
