We close publishing for the year this week, and return in January. It’s been 13 weeks since we launched on 23 September, and we are truly grateful to all of you who have been here with us.
These three months have been by turns exciting and humbling; we are proud of the journalism we have done, and at the same time have learned much. But we’re not here to plug our work today. Instead, we’re looking back at the year gone by through five long reads we have collated from across publications. These stories, we feel, represent some of the best journalism in India and elsewhere—and more importantly, together they give us excellent context to our three themes: Internet, Business and Chaos.
