Disclaimer

One of the main genres used by this website in its publications is news satire. This means the articles published in the News Pages section are works of fiction, and should not be treated as accounts of actual incidents. Then why are we writing things that never happened? In this reference, the description of satire by Wikipedia may be helpful: “In satire, vices, follies, abuses, and shortcomings are held up to ridicule, ideally with the intent of shaming individuals, and society itself, into improvement. Although satire is usually meant to be funny, its greater purpose is often constructive social criticism, using wit as a weapon.” If you feel we were unable to satisfy any such function of satire, please write to us at edit@ntmn.in so that our editors attempt to address your concern and correct themselves, if needed.

The pieces published on this website reflect the opinions of the author alone, and not necessarily those of the website.

A Note on Possible Social Effects
