He Has Good News #WATWB
It was an Aha! moment for me, when I read this news yesterday. The first thought that came to my mind was that here’s a person who is spreading smiles and happiness just like #WATWB, a project which is close to my heart.
As you know, We Are the World Blogfest, is a monthly blog event created by Damyanti Biswas and Belinda Witzenhausen to showcase stories of hope and light. And here we have a youngster who believes in sharing positive stories too.
Meet Piyush Ghosh, one of the founders of The Optimist Citizen, India’s First Positive Newspaper. In a mission to stop the overflow of negative information, this young man has dared to go against the tide by bringing India’s First Positive Newspaper to people. The Optimist Citizen is India’s first purely positive newspaper presenting only positive news and optimistic stories from all around the world. The mission of The Optimist Citizen is to initiate and stimulate positive actions by positive stories.
Piyush along with his co-founders Tennyson Matthews and Tuhin Kumar Sen believes that it is necessary to show people that there is so much good happening around because it inspires them to do good and give them the courage to fight in difficult situations or help people in need. It increases acceptance and tolerance among people, which contributes a lot to a peaceful society.
Through this newspaper the team of enthused youngsters wants to infuse more positivity in the society by demonstrating the best of human race and human experience. The Optimist Citizen seeks to bring to light those inspirational stories that are often not picked up by the TV Channels or newspapers since they do not create sensation and drama. They are on a mission to ignite faith in people’s hearts and help them strengthen their withering belief about this world being a good place.
