The political lenses of the youth
Political Pandora was initially conceptualized from the need we felt to bring to the world and open its eyes to a perspective no one was truly privy to: the youth’s perspective. Everywhere we turned, we either saw news as a political party saw it or issues being addressed from a strict analytic viewpoint that did not consider the humans involved. We wanted to change the narrative to encompass the political lenses of the youth on all shades of politics: government, systems, power, media and the politics curtained by entertainment.
Offering humane perspectives often lacking by traditional print media and journalism, Political Pandora remains an internet-based media platform challenging normative views on politics and socio-economic issues. Political Pandora’s content has an earmark of opening up conversations about disregarded and overlooked aspects of issues such as the everyday lives of the indegenous, voice of the marginalised and environmental hazards.
For the world, by the youth, the Political Pandora resonates with the curious Pandora in the voices of tomorrow.
Political Pandora is a youth-led news and opinions publication founded by Adi Roy and Thenthamizh SS in December 2020. The publication focuses on real-world news and political issues where young people from across the world share articles, expressing their opinions and thoughts. Political Pandora also serves as a platform for the simplification of news for the youth.
Political Pandora was initially launched on Instagram, with the official website launching on March 10, 2021. The founders started the publication during their junior year in high school in India. Started as a project, the publication quickly grew with interested contributors joining the publication from over nine countries.
