Subject: Launching the website for our Dalit youth magazine 'Insight Young Voices'
Insight Editorial Collective is pleased to inform you about the launching of
the website for our Dalit youth magazine 'Insight Young Voices'.
- The *URL for the sites* are as follows:-
- http://insightyv.com/ - [The main site will have the latest issues
of our magazine and will double up as an e-resource center for Dalit and
Tribal students and act as a platform for providing mentorship as well as
information regarding various scholarships, admissions and career
- http://archive.insightyv.com/ - [Top ten past issues of our magazine
like Caste and Gender, Caste and Nationalism, Caste and Atrocities have been
uploaded and can be accessed by our readers]
- http://blog.insightyv.com/ - [ We have also started a blog
Table*' where our 22 member team will be posting their views, analysis,
creative writings on different contemporary issues. We are aiming to develop
this blog as a site to generate discussions and debates on these issues.]
- Through these sites we are trying to carry forward our magazine's prime
objective of creating platforms for Dalit and Tribal students to articulate
their views, contribute to the empowerment of our community as well as fight
against caste-based discrimination both inside as well as outside the
- The website for our magazine was long overdue, but with our limited
resources we were not able to create one till now. The Insight Editorial
Collective is highly indebted to the Dalit student group of IIT Mumbai for
creating our websites and providing all support for uploading the contents.
We sincerely hope that our readers will access these sites and help us in
creating a strong and useful online platform for Dalit and Tribal students.
- We raise our financial support from within the community for all our
activities including printing of the magazine. Like all the other small
magazines it has been a very tough journey for us too. Therefore next few
issues of our magazine will only be available online and can be read on our
website. But we are convinced that nothing will please our readers more than
to see a hard copy of Insight Young Voices in their hands and therefore we
promise you that we will keep pushing ourselves to create a sustainable
model for our mag and come back with printed version of our mag very soon.
- Nest issue of Insight Young Voices to be released on 10th July *
In this issue we are carrying interviews of 12 noted Dalit academicians,
scholars, activists and religious leaders from different parts of the
country. These interviews have been taken by a Dalit student group from
TISS, Mumbai in collaboration with Insight Editorial Collective with an
objective of mapping the various trajectories within the Dalit movement in
last 25 years. The second series of 13 more interviews with similar
objective will be published in the August 10th issue of our magazine.
- We request our readers to visit our sites and provide us comments and
suggestions to improve our efforts. We are planning to gradually develop our
website with more useful features and your suggestions and comments will
help us in doing so.
