Outlook has always been my personal knowledge partner. The cover stories are in-depth and deal with many different kinds of subjects, while interviews with important leaders, successful entrepreneurs and dignitaries help me understand the bigger picture. I am an avid reader of the magazine and the reviews in its books section have on many occasions assisted me in choosing my next one. The magazine is a great read, however, certain columns do disappoint us on occasions. In the social and political reporting area, the articles usually stand unbiased, but some writers have their own nuances. No magazine can be classified as good or bad, but Outlook can’t be overlooked.
My relation with Outlook goes back to my early days in politics and it has always been an enriching engagement. Even today. When I sit back and recall, it was peak preparation time before the Lok Sabha elections of 2014 when I came across an interesting article, The Next Station. The story gave a complete picture of the different ideological preferences of voters in the country. There have been many such informative articles and stories that make Outlook stand out from all other magazines. All this could not have happened without the support of the entire Outlook team with its pool of correspondents, photographers, designers and managers. I hope that they keep “looking out” in their desire to develop Outlook.
