About The Caravan

The Caravan is India’s first long-form narrative journalism magazine. It was relaunched in 2010 as a journal of politics and culture dedicated to meticulous reporting and the art of narrative. Since then, The Caravan has established itself as one of the country’s most respected and intellectually agile magazines and set new benchmarks for Indian journalism.

While candidates studying any liberal arts subject are encouraged to apply, it is imperative that they exhibit sound editorial judgement and an understanding of The Caravan's strident pursuit of independent journalism and its commitment to in-depth investigative stories.
