“I heard the song and made everyone around me listen to it too! They loved it. Now about the March Issue – I loved the edit note it was so informative, well worded and personal at the same time.
The variety in the content amazed me, forgive the cliche but there is something for everyone in there. I loved the poems specially ‘The Journey of a Poem’. Snap! was also a good read. I liked the used of images & illustrations though they can be used in a far better and smarter way. A slight visual relief would really enhance the magazine say even a rule or box here & there. Perhaps the information that a poem is now a song could be in a bolder font!
The special feature was also nice. I found Vinita Nangia’s interview a misfit somehow both in terms of writing and choice of person.
I also went through all the previous covers and while I liked most of them I couldn’t really see a pattern there. A pattern say India inspired stuff (truck art and chai stall) helps one identify with the magazine. Perhaps you could think of bringing some kind of artistic consistency there.
In all, a pleasant read for anyone who wants a thought to stay with him/her. I’d say the magazine is not a mere collection of works but thoughts of people from all across that add so much depth to the issue.
That’s it for now! Look forward to your next issue.
