Magazine

India Today is the leading news magazine and most widely read publication in India. The magazine’s leadership is unquestioned, so much so that India Today is what Indian journalism is judged by, for its integrity and ability to bring unbiased and incisive perspective to arguably the most dynamic, yet perplexing, region in the world. Breaking news and shaping opinion, it is now a household name and the flagship brand of India’s leading multidimensional media group. Additionally, the weekly brings with it a range supplements like Women, Home, Aspire, Spice and Simply which focus on style, health, education, fashion, etc. and Indian cities.

Presenting India Today Insight

IN MODI WE TRUST… • THE BIANNUAL SURVEY REVEALS THAT THE PRIME MINISTER IS STILL REGARDED AS THE BEST BET FOR THE JOB, BUT SERIOUS CONCERNS REMAIN

PROJECTED RESULTS IF LS ELECTIONS WERE HELD TODAY

STATE-WISE BREAK-UP OF SEATS

SWING IN THE PUBLIC MOOD • How seat and vote share projections have changed since NDA came to power

METHODOLOGY

THE HOPE AND THE WORRY • In the third year of PM Modi’s second term and two years into the pandemic, a majority of Indians continue to have faith in the Centre’s handling of the economy. However, high inflation, a lack of jobs and shrinking incomes mar any rosy outlook

A NEW-LOOK OPPOSITION? • Rahul Gandhi may still be the most ideally placed to revive the fortunes of the Congress but Mamata Banerjee is seen as a better candidate to lead an Opposition alliance against the BJP

MOST POPULAR CM (ACROSS INDIA) • Respondents across states were asked to rate who they thought to be the best performing CM in the country

TOP DRAWS • Regional players dominate the public mindspace when it comes to the performance of heads of Indian states

MOST POPULAR CM (IN HOME STATE) • Respondents in every state were asked to rate their own chief minister

VACCINE WITHOUT WANING • A majority of MOTN respondents give a thumbs up to the Union government’s vaccination drive and Covid efforts, with Odisha scoring top marks among states for its handling of the pandemic

MIXED MESSAGES • While Indian citizens worry about the state of Indian democracy, they are optimistic about corruption and eager for change

BIG STICK DIPLOMACY • China and Pakistan remain New Delhi’s big external challenges, but MOTN respondents endorse the government’s stance on both, and a harder one on Kashmir

TAKING THE LEAD • Actresses in their 40s are topping the OTT chart, while the Bachchan father and son hold on to pole positions in both the general and OTT categories

STARS ARE BORN • Olympic medalists sneaked into the cricket club in the popularity stakes in the men’s league, while P.V. Sindhu retained the No.1 spot in people’s hearts among women

FROM GROUND ZERO TO HALF THE SKY… • THE CONGRESS IS NOWHERE IN THE CONTEST IN UP. BUT AT A TIME WHEN CASTE IS THE LEITMOTIF, IT MAKES A VIRTUE OUT OF ADVERSITY: FEMINISING POLITICS WITH 40 PER CENT SEATS TO WOMEN

“Creating a new paradigm in UP politics by giving 40% tickets to women” • The two main rivals in Uttar Pradesh—BJP and Samajwadi Party—are busy stitching up coalitions based on caste calculations. The Congress, meanwhile, has introduced a novel element: gender. Women constitute 46 per cent of the state’s population, and the Grand Old Party has promised this segment 40 per cent of its tickets in the upcoming poll. Congress general secretary in charge of UP Priyanka Gandhi calls it the foundation for a new discourse that will set the template for 2024 too. Excerpts from an interview with Prashant Srivastava
