About Us

Compassion. Curiosity. Conviction. Courage.

This is what we aspire to every day at Mojo Story, a new media platform that places #PeopleFirst.

Mojo- which means magic- is our experiment in Hope.

It is our passionately held belief that even in a hyper-polarised, bitterly divided world, our audience craves non-partisan, honest, accurate and authentic storytelling.

Reports, podcasts, Interviews, Events- From 60 seconds to 60 Minutes, at the Mojo Story we have you covered for the Long and Short of it.There's something for everyone and every mood- bite sized nuggets for the busy, harried days and content to get your teeth into, for more reflective moods.

In a media environment where so many have been co-opted by camps, our motto is, to borrow a colloquialism from Hindi- 'Na Chamcha, No Morcha.' We are fiercely ourselves- factual, open-minded, occasionally emotional, but always a forum that seeks to build bridges across extremes.

Mojo Story was born and raised in a time of global crisis. When still a few months old, the COVID pandemic hit. We are proud to say that this platform was built on the back of ground-breaking reporting through COVID from across India, traversing, by road, the distance from Delhi to Kerala and back. Since then, we have always stood by our commitment to go to where the story is, no matter how tough or dangerous. Manipur, Israel-Gaza, The Farmers Protests, Uttarakhand Flash Floods-- you will find us at the epicentre of action.

Women-Owned and Women Led, Mojo Story is the curator of 'We the Women', India's most impactful women's festival. Our plans in this space include a leadership program for teenage girls and the unveiling of a Professional Women's Club. Technology has disrupted Media across the world. But we see tech as our ally, not our adversary.

We strive to use AI, new softwares, cutting-edge production with only one aim, to build a deeper relationship with You, The People. How are we doing so far? You can check us out at
