Who Are We?

We are


Roar was founded in 2014 and quickly became the leading source of reliable, credible content that explores the diversity of lifestyle, culture, and the zeitgeist that shapes South Asia.

We like facts, but we also love the stories that emerge when we immerse ourselves in the varied communities that make up the region. We aim for content that always informs, sometimes inspires, and occasionally entertains. We currently produce high quality content in English, Sinhala, Tamil, Hindi and Bengali.
