Tarun J Tejpal is a journalist and publisher. In a 22-year career, he has been an editor with the India Today and The Indian Express groups, and the managing editor of Outlook, one of India’s premier newsmagazines. He has also written for several international publications, including The Paris Review, The Guardian, The Financial Times and Prospect.

In March 2000, he left Outlook to start Tehelka.com—a news-and-views magazine on the net that has broken ground with its sting investigations. In 2001, Asiaweek listed Tejpal as one of Asia’s 50 most powerful communicators, and Businessweek declared him among 50 leaders at the forefront of change in Asia.

Tehelka has garnered worldwide acclaim for its journalism, and is seen as one of the seminal websites of world media. After three years of gross victimisation by the Indian establishment, in January 2004 Tehelka relaunched itself as a national weekly paper, uniquely funded by the advance subscriptions of its supporters. The Tehelka weekly paper which is a well-rounded paper with public interest as its core is being read by more than a hundred thouisand people every week. Its readership is growing in leaps and bounds.
