Insightful, entertaining, and reliable

Roar was launched in 2014 and quickly became a leading source of reliable content that explores the issues, the ideas and the people that are shaping South Asia today. We like facts, but we also love to immerse ourselves among the communities of the region to create unique content that informs, inspires and also, frequently, entertains.

Our Sites

We publish a wide variety of articles, videos, photo essays and infographics through seven websites, and in five languages. All websites are completely free for everyone (No walls here. We’re not Trump).
