Verity: A word that encompasses everything our newspaper and our team stands for. It is defined as the quality or condition of being true, factual, or real. It is a quality that our broadsheet has and hence the name “The Verity”.
The name of our newspaper came upon as a lightning, striking our minds during one of our earliest team discussions. Our sub-editor Tanvi Dube came up with this idea and it was instantly agreed upon since we all felt the same about our newspaper. Verity is after all, like a synonym of truth, and truth is what we have written in our broadsheet.
Our ideology of following and representing the truth is also visible in our logo and masthead. Our logo, designed by our head designer Sahil Ahuja, is in the shape of a pen’s nib disguising a sword in it, which represents the old English proverb- The pen is mightier than the sword. It also has “Semper veritas” written on the nib’s rim, which is the Latin for “always truth”. Our masthead, which includes the name “The Verity” and the logo, is in the shape of a pen, a writers’ weapon which along with the elements of the logo and the name completely represents our ideology and what our newspaper represents.
Our ideology is well followed in our articles which have been prepared by our reporters Sunakshi Soni, Divya Nangia and Aarushi Sarin after careful precisions of our Editor’s and Sub-Editors’ journalistic talents and it will also be seen in our design and graphics that emanates from the will to be sophisticated, dignified and righteous. Our Editor, Sakshi Shroff, and our Sub Editors, Antarik Anwesan and Tanvi Dube guided the team comprising of the above mentioned people and Ankit Goyla, our ad-designer, with zest and confidence and have made sure that these three qualities are well maintained within the limits of truth, which has helped justify the name “The Verity”.
