Mint turned two on 1 February.
The newspaper, the result of a unique partnership between HT Media Ltd and ‘The Wall Street Journal’, was launched in 2007 at a time when the world seemed a better, and friendlier, place.
Things have since changed. The global and local stock markets have been ravaged. Economies around the world have slowed and some will actually shrink this year. Companies that couldn’t find enough people to hire are now laying off people by the hundreds. Revenues are falling and profits, shrinking.
With between 139,000 and 220,000 loyal readers (depending on which metric of the Indian Readership Survey you choose to look at), Mint has proved to be an unbiased and clear-minded chronicler of the Indian Dream in the good times.
Now, when the times have turned not-so-good, we promise to do the same even as we grow and reach out to more readers in more cities.
Mint’s own dream, like India’s, lives on.
Thank you for reading the paper and continue to write in.
