“What keeps me going is bharosa; the motivation is that we are building a different country,” said Arnab, adding that his media startup was about “building a new India”, one that a lot of people disagreed with.

Digital will see the growth of new organisations like ours, and maybe others,” Arnab said.He said he was keen to make Republic a digital-led TV operation this financial year.
