Outlook’s launch in 1995, I remember, took the world of magazine journalism by storm. It was different from its Indian contemporaries, many of whom leaned heavily on Time and Newsweek for their ideas, style and design with a few going so far as to become copycats. However, Outlook’s masthead itself seemed to suggest it would be a trailblazer. It was also rich in content and the presentation was simply eye-catching. Moreover, the magazine itself was printed on glossy paper which set it apart from many others of its kind. It goes to the credit of Outlook that it probed behind the news and came up with exclusive cover stories and exposes when many magazines during those days merely rehashed the daily news into weekly, fortnightly or monthly issues. Such daredevilry at a time when magazine journalism was largely staid and sombre drew many loyal readers to Outlook, including me. It was no secret even then that this was one magazine that was different, that here at least the editor had the last word on what was printed in the mag.
