Point Blank 7, an independent online publication, aims to provide an alternative and focused view of news and commentaries on issues often ignored, slaughtered and overlooked by the mainstream media.
We aim to meet the growing need for independent news and views which go beyond populist influences. We question the establishment, authorities, public intellectuals, put them under scrutiny to expose biases, influence, weaknesses in their functioning.
We aim to serve as the “conscience keeper” of commercial media and assure that Point Blank 7 speaks the truth fearlessly, without favours. Its primary goal is to keep readers informed and engaged with our objective, fair and point blank journalism 7 days a week!
We are committed to being fair, objective, balanced and truthful while providing in depth analysis of issues via a team of experts for each subject. Expert analysis, hard hitting critiques of policies, in depth coverage of key issues that fail to make it to the public domain due to various reasons are our areas of focus.
Our content is a healthy mix of expert analysis, narratives, features, inspirational stories and detailed assessment of polices. We rely on our detailed, focused coverage of the most compelling key issues of the day.
We engage the best thinkers and writers to present their analysis, views and opinions on:
- topics which get media attention but not the way they deserve
- topics which require media attention but remain neglected
- topics which get slaughtered due to less media attention
It’s time to get involved, to tackle issues, make suggestions, come up with a constructive, positive critique of the functioning of the mainstream media in various areas and revive people’s belief in balanced journalism.

Post a stint at a leading mainstream digital media house, she chose to follow her heart and pursue her passion and she took off on her own to start Point Blank 7, an issue based independent publication from scratch. She has built Point Blank 7 based upon a number of editorial values that she believes lay the foundation of the fourth estate, including truth, accuracy, accountability and independence.
