When Trishul News was started, there was not a single Fact checking curating platform in Gujarati Language. Vandankumar Bhadani says, “Most of the media companies and digital marketers focused only on elite English or hindi reading audience, but I was always interested in finding the untapped truths, so I decided to start one for Gujarati reading audience.”
While sharing their strategy Vandankumar Bhadani said, “We’ve always been prompt in creating content, whenever there is a buzz, we have to research, create and share the content in next 30 minutes. Whenever we have shared a content within 30 minutes of its first report, we have seen 3 times better response. Many a times I have to personally go to office late night to create posts, this is the career I chose, and I love it.”
