In the year 2000, when the World Wide Web was only ten years old and words like 'Google' or 'blog' were still unknown, India's print media was the dominant source of news. Its unending stream of depressing news made many feel India was a country without a future. That scenario troubled a man as he kept pondering.

If India was as terrible as the media made it out to be, how has it endured these thousands of years?
Surely there are a great many who are doing the good work despite all obstacles that we merely complain about?
Who are they and what good work are they doing?
What or who made them dedicate themselves to their work?

Driven by these questions, that man, D.V, Sridharan, then fifty-eight years old, decided to go out, discover their stories and highlight good news from India, for India and the world. After building a basic armed with an early model of a digital camera, he drove around the country to meet and write about their work.

It turned out there were numerous little-known heroes who, despite adverse circumstances, braved on with the good work they believed in. In the process, he discovered what was worth working on for the furtherance of India as a civilisation.

Good News India showcases some of those ordinary Indians and their extraordinary work. These are stories of positive action, steely endeavour and quiet triumphs.
