The landmark of the 150th edition of PreSense was celebrated in an event held at Chennai on August 24th 2019. The Chief Guest, Hon’ble Minister of Tamil Nadu, Shri Ma Foi K.Pandiarajan did the honours of releasing the eDigest, PreSense150 which is a compilation of select articles from the 150 editions of the eMagazine. Shri M.R. Sivaraman IAS (Retired), Former Revenue Secretary to Government of India and Former Executive Director, International Monetary Fund (IMF)  was the Guest of Honour.

The Hon’ble Minister lauded the performance of the eMagazine and reminisced about his association with it during his early days as a corporate CEO. He suggested expanding the reach of the eMagazine as well as publishing the Tamil version of the eMagazine articles. 


Shri Sivaraman in his message spoke about the role and responsibility of the journalists in the changing technology and environment of the media. His message was especially significant since he gave an elaborate presentation about his experience with the media in the earlier days of his career when journalists were “clean, matter-of-fact, polite and well-behaved and responsible” about the truth of the news he reported. In contrast, he found the journalists of the current trend less accountable. 

He gave a detailed and comparative account of the role of the journalists and the media of the yesteryears vis-à-vis those of the current changing environment, and enumerated the key attributes of a good journalist. He concluded by saying, “journalism is an extremely important wing in the governance of the country.” The public must be informed and the media is the source of the information. The media as the fourth estate, is like the fourth leg of a chair which cannot stand on three legs.  

Smt Rehana, Member of City of London Corporation, shared the experience of her journey from a corporate personality to a political figure. She appreciated the Next Gen Political Leaders (NGPL) initiative of PreSense.  Shri Ramasubbu, former Member of Parliament (MP) and five-time Sansad Ratna Awardee also shared his experience and perspective as an MP and Awardee.

The launch was followed by a talk by renowned neurologist, Dr A.V. Srinivasan who spoke about ‘Brain Health’, and a panel discussion on ‘Current Trends in Media’. The expert panellists who participated were Shri T K Rangarajan MP, Shri Rangaraj Pandey, Founder and CEO, Chanakyaa and CEO, Vendhar TV channel, and Smt Banu Gomes, Popular Political Analyst. The discussions were moderated by Prime Point Srinivasan.
