Industrialisation has brought about a massive shift from the traditional age to the digital age. The economy now is necessarily based on information computerization. Electronic publishing is the talk of the town. Digital magazines and e-books are taking over the regular paperback editions.
The Indian Trumpet is one among many such digital magazines which reach readers beyond regional boundaries, but the difference lies in the fact that with just two issues, The Indian Trumpet has already captivated a billion hearts around the globe. This bi-monthly e-zine is an outstanding blend of anything and everything you can possibly think of! Right from the inevitable charm of the Arab Emirates, to the impeccable culture of India, from the bright sunlit Dubai sky to the wintry chills of Delhi, from the Burj Khalifa to the Taj Mahal , from festivals to travel, from food to fashion, from old movies to the latest blockbusters, from books to music, from writings to art, from home décor to the weather, from sports to politics, The Indian Trumpet serves it all on a single platter.
The Indian Trumpet is Purva Grover’s brainchild. An NRI currently living in Dubai, she is a chirpy, fun-loving soul, who believes in relishing each moment to the max. Words, and words alone are her first love. It is no wonder then that her friends call her MS Word with spell-check, rhyme and feelings! She, someday wants to pen not a novel, but a dictionary. She holds a Master’s degree in Mass Communication and Literature and has the powerful experience of over seven years of working in the publishing industry. She has previously worked as an associate editor for luxury magazines in India and continues to work as a freelance editorial consultant and writer for Indian and international magazines. Being the founder and editor of The Indian Trumpet is like a dream come true. Through her magazine, she feels more than connected to her home country India, while exploring and enjoying what the city of Dubai has in store for her.
This bi-monthly digital magazine features writers not only from India and Dubai,but from across the world. The writing featured is not genre-specific, but diverse, catering to writers and readers of every breed. The editorial team comprises professional writers, artists and photographers both from India as well as the Middle East. The free-to-read e-zine released its debut issue on the first of July this year.
The e-zine can aptly be categorized under infotainment – a perfect fusion of information and entertainment – and the content boasts of nothing less than the best. The magazine has its own appeal through its design and layout and is a feast for readers’ eyes.
