The genesis for Dainik Jagran was in the year 1942. The year when the freedom struggle of India reached its crescendo and found expression in the “Quit India movement”. Dainik Jagran was launched during this time with the vision of our founder Shri Puran Chandra Gupta, to “Create a newspaper that would reflect the free voice of the people” . This vision was as much a reflection of the time when it was propounded as much as it is relevant to us today. Even as on today, when Dainik Jagran markets control the political destiny of the largest democracy in the world, the vision continues to guide us.
