About the Magazine

The pulp version of the quarterly magazine (Jan, Apr, Jul, and Oct), founded in 1995, is mailed to over 1800 homes of people tracing their heritage to the Indian subcontinent, now living in the Pittsburgh Metro Area (Southwest Pennsylvania, the West Virginia Panhandle, and Eastern Ohio).

In the printed version of the magazine shown 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 your 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 i) provide a platform for people to express themselves, and ii) link businesses who want to reach the resourceful Indian Diaspora with their goods/services.

Our writers freely comment on any political, social, religious, economic, cultural, community, and spiritual topics that interest or provoke readers. With our belief that time and the collective wisdom of readers are the best judges of opinions, we have embraced a wide editorial latitude.

We welcome your contributions — articles, recipes, jokes, comments, accomplishments, photographs, wedding announcements… … We also welcome suggestions for stories.  For details, contact:
