HISTORY● 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, the revolutionary freedom fighter, Late Shri Puran Chandra Gupta “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. )● The tradition of truth that Shri Puran Chandra Gupta heralded was carried forward by literary stalwarts like Shri Narendra Mohan. Apart from strengthening Jagran’s editorial stance, he embarked on a drive towards modernization and building interaction between the paper and its readers.
