Manycoverj1e1 of us believe that pre- capital era of Dehradun was same as it looks today. There were many memories of mine related to this city. The eucalyptus trees, the sugarcane fields, the magical smell of basmati rice (which were as long as thumb), the baghs of litchis and guava and much more. From past four years I was pursuing my studies here but, there was not a single moment when I didn’t praised this city. Me and my co-editor Arnav, used to discuss about the features of it.

Our talks usually start from the weather conditions and the ends at the never ending beauty and its vitality. But, the only question that last was, who will take care of this heritage of ours?

The people working in this city for art, culture, heritage, science and technology and literature were the main part playing characters. Many of them were known and many of them were unknown. We searched through the narrowest lanes to each and every universities for such heroes and, found the lack of focus of media in this subject has abandoned the real aspect of society. This magazine is focused on covering the stories of such people who are unknown to us but have extraordinary achievements.

This issue of e-magazine has been focusing on our short experience on trip to Rishikesh and an interview with kathak institute teacher. This time we are covering the literature aspects of Rudyard Kipling’s “Kim”. Kipling’s books were majorly focused on Indian subcontinents. Dehradun was also the part of the Kipling’s trail. Hence his Nobel winning novel is chosen as a part to be covered by our first issue.

Our introductory issue is also featuring the art and illustration by different painters and photographers. Hope you will love our initiative.

Happy Reading!!
