We understand more than anyone, how the larger segment of society is ignored in media. Deprived children and meager class are kept aside because they are incapable to go in advertisement segment.
Today the big brands' consumers get more exposure in media. Politics has always been the favourite subject for them.
The content for the most important age group of 0-18 years is nowhere in media. In Bihar, 48 percent of the total population falls in this age group.
We are paying more attention especially to this age group as they are the future builders of our nation.

It is completely dedicated to the development of children. Our mission is to develop a critical outlook in the students. Initially this is our prime product.
This is the internet era and hence Digital Media has much importance in everyone’s life. Through different social media platforms we cater digital contents, which promote local and regional talents. We tell the success stories of children and teachers to the world so that others can also be encouraged.
Before I talk about our mission & vision, let me discuss some facts and ask you some questions.
Do you know what is the population of Bihar? And which age group has the highest percentage?
According to the 2011 Census report, Bihar had a population of around (delete space) 10 crore 9 years back, which was about 8.6 percent of country's total population- of 121 crore. In 2018 the population of Bihar was estimated to be around 12 crore.
The child population of the country covers the age group of 0-18 years and is a vulnerable segment of the population.
As per the Census of India 2011, almost 39 percent of India's population lies in the age bracket of 0-18 years, whereas, in Bihar, 48 percent of the total population falls in this age group.
The state is home for more than 4.98 crore children, accounting for 11 percent of India's total child population.
And question now…
Now the question arises that whether the existing newspapers are useful for about half of the population of the state?
Do these newspapers interact with 0-18 age group prominently? Do these newspapers significantly talk about the problems of the children?
Have these newspapers ever tried to develop a critical outlook in them? Do they help them in making the responsible citizens who are able to raise question on the system?
Are these newspapers developing the social, political and scientific outlook of this age group?
The answer is... No!
Looking for the answers to these questions, the idea of The Newsbeat came.
Our aim is not to prove any newspapers down, but to search the problem area and find a solution.
It is said that children are the future of the country. Whatever a person learns during his/her 0-18 years of age, he/she behaves in the same way throughout the lifetime.
The Newsbeat is completely dedicated to the growth and progress of the children. Our mission is to broaden their viewpoint. We want to make them aware of the world outside of the books and their school.
Our goal is to enable every child to be intellectually active, so that he or she can walk on the right path to achieve the goal that he or she dreams of, along with the ability to make decisions in career selection.
