About the Magazine

The pulp version of the quarterly magazine (Jan, Apr, Jul, and Oct), founded in 1995, reaches around 2000 stable, mostly suburban homes of  people tracing their heritage to the Indian subcontinent living in and around Pittsburgh Metro Area, Northern West Virginia, and Eastern Ohio.

The printed version also carries advertisements that are of great use to readers. 

We started this nonsectarian, nondogmatic and somewhat irreverent magazine in 1995  both to provide a platform for people to express themselves and to link businesses who want to reach the resourceful Indian Diaspora with their goods/services. 

Our writers freely comment on political, social, religious, economic, cultural, community, and spiritual topics that interest or provoke readers.

We embrace a wide editorial latitude since we believe that time and the collective wisdom of readers are the best judges of opinions.

We welcome your contributions — articles, recipes, jokes, comments, accomplishments, photographs, wedding announcements… … …

We also welcome suggestions for stories.  For details, contact:
