PGurus appreciates your support but there is much more to do…

PGurus is considered one of the most credible sources of journalism. As we strive to grow, we need your help.

Red Book on Sale!


It is hard to believe but PGurus is now three and a half years old! During this exciting journey, we have grown from strength to strength, adding languages, videos, and a new genre, VideoPosts to our stable. We set high standards for ourselves and strive to beat them. In order to continue to grow, we need your help. We are seeking donations from our loyal viewers – no amount is too small and no sum is too large. Our staff has grown as have our computing requirements. We expect to add more subject matter experts to our panel and will continue to set the bar for facts-based journalism.

For your ease of use, we have included 3 settings with a fourth one allowing you to enter an amount of your choice. In order to donate, you need to follow the following steps:

  1. Open any PGurus post and you will see an animation in the post, after 2 paragraphs that seeks your donation. Click on it and you can follow the instructions from there on.
  2. Click on this link. It will take you to Paypal and you can follow the instructions from thereon.
  3. Alternatively, you can just scan the below QR code and that will do too:
  4. QR code to donate to PGurus
    PGurus is considered one of the most credible sources of journalism. As we strive to grow, we need your help.

If you do not have a PayPal account, it is easy to sign up for one – all you need is an email address. If you live in India and want to create a PayPal account, then the process is as follows:

  • A valid Email address
  • A valid PAN card and
  • A valid Bank account

The step-by-step process is detailed in this post. Trust me when I say this – it is worth having a PayPal account. You can use your phone to transfer money free, to your friends and family.

You can donate with your Credit Card/ Debit Card too…

Set the amount and then instead of choosing PayPal, choose Debit or Credit Card. As simple as that. You can make it a one-time donation or make recurring payments. It is your choice and we respect that.

Thanks once again for supporting us and we look forward to an exciting future.

  1. Subject : Pgurus’ recently announced Membership Drive.
    Dear Sir/Madam,
    I have only an Email account and none of the other popular Facebook or Twitter etc.
    Can I sign up for membership ? How ?
    Can the new member pay for the full year in advance ?
    In the passing ; your invitation to subscription and donation requires Pay-Pal and Google account. Would your Membership Drive be using the same aforementioned procedure-linked technology ?
    Good wishes.

  2. For Heaven’s Sake, Please answer.
    I did not find ‘I Like’ Icon; While watching Episode# 64

    How can I persuade people to contribute to your/common cause (a), (b), under the following circumstances-Your vow of silence ?
    Over the last many months :
    You have neither answered questions and nor modified technology on your site. (Dec 7, 2020 and October 10,2020 and July 7, 2020 and…)
    REMINDER-4 :
    I sent you a Link which (most likely) exposes the technology used by other websites, easy for contributors to follow.
    a)How to contribute to your cause ? I have a CC/debit card but not PayPal registration.
    b)I have neither Facebook account and nor Twitter handle/account.
    Can I subscribe to http://www.pgurus.com, just with my Email-account/address ?
    What are my obligations for being a subscriber ?
    Good wishes.

    • If you reside in India, you can help PGurus by joining SuperChats in our YouTube live hangouts and donating there. If time permits, we try to answer your questions too. There is no limit on the amount or how many times you can donate. Hope this clarifies. At this time, PayPal is not setup to receive donations from India for US-based companies.

  3. Dear Sir/Madam,
    I have neither a Facebook and nor a Twitter account.
    Mr Iyer invites viewers to subscribe.
    What does that entail ? What are my obligations ?
    Thank you very much.

    Dear Mr Iyer,
    I hope I do not offend you,
    Please hereunder find website of an organisation which takes donations On-Line without PayPal, Accepts Credit Card. I hope you find it useful.

    I have no knowledge of the technical part (Receiver’s end)
    Good day.

    Your technical know-how, mastery over technology is commendable? I shall never reach that level.
    Over the last 6 months, I tried numerous times to contribute to your cause but I failed. Then I bought your books, as an alternative.
    I have no desire to join Jet-Setters, follow latest convenience-packed technologies offered to consumers, e.g. open a Pay-Pal. I prefer to remain under-developed.
    Your following advice is quasi Pay-Pal

  8. Dear Sree Iyer,
    I wanted to contribute but why is it so difficult. I do not want to join Paypal and create one more account and password etc. I live in Australia and can pay by credit card but your links take me to Paypal. Please let me know. Why donation is so difficult. Maybe it is all geared for people in US.

  9. Dear Mr Iyer,
    I wanted to contribute to Pgurus, but the only way I can do it is through my credit card. Your instructions under Icon-Donate say, »After 2 paragraphs in each post, you shall find an animation ».
    I was reading the article ; https://www.pgurus.com/air-customs-catches-30kg-gold-bars-smuggling-from-diplomatic-baggage-of-uae-consulate-in-kerala/
    I followed your instructions, the animation I accessed was the publicity for your book.
    But I already bought 2 of your books.
    What am I doing wrong ?
    Please advise.
    Thanks.

  14. Please enable UPI option. Lot of PGurus Indian watchers already have the account and comfortable with it. Please do it asap before I end up donating money somewhere else.

  15. Dear Sir/Madam,
    I wanted to contribute to Pgurus.
    PayPal asked me about my date of Birth.
    I did not want to put my small savings at risk, by exposing my bank account, personal data to someone in Virtual Space.
    Please advise an alternative for well-wishers who have limited income. and can only make On & Off payments through savings.

  16. I tried several times to donate with the link in pgurus.com ‘Donate’ but it gives error ‘Session Expired’ . Tried different browsers, clearing cache ..but nothing works. Many are not donating in PGurus bcos of the tedious process .I’m not keen to go through PayPal. If possible please make as simple as in Rajiv Malhotra’s Infinity foundation Donate page where there is a button to click either ‘PayPal’ or ‘Donate with a Debit or credit card’. As you have mentioned in this link for donate process doesnt provide the option to select ‘Debit/Credit’ card option. Only option I see is PayPal. As others already have mentioned in the comments having other simpler ways to donate like BHIM/PhonePe/Google Pay/PayTM would help. I’m sure many are not donating just bcos easy options to donate is not available. Thanks.

  17. Dear Sir,
    A small suggestion.
    I think you can offer a facility of donation by encashing reward points of credit cards by tying up with banks.
    Many people are not interested in the lousy offers for redemption.
