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.

In the printed version of the magazine (see here), you will see how the magazine is laid out, its contents and visual appeal, and the types and range of the businesses advertising with us.   

To get a free copy of the magazine in the mail, please send your mailing address to: ThePatrika@aol.com

We also provide professional on-time, reliable mailing service to  businesses at competitive rates.  For details, contact ThePatrika@aol.com.

We started this nonsectarian, nondogmatic and somewhat irreverent magazine in 1995 to 

  •  provide a platform for people to express themselves and
  • 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:
