Keeping the long form narrative writing as the hallmark of the magazine, the Delhi Press Group of Publications has re-launched The Caravan as a monthly journal of politics and culture. The Caravan, which was originally started in 1939 by Vishwa Nath, had stopped publication in the 1980s and had again launched in October 2008. The latest re-launch will also see the price of the magazine hiked from Rs 35 to Rs 40.
Paresh Nath is the Editor of The Caravan, while Anant Nath is the Managing Editor and Vinod K Jose is the Deputy Editor.
Commenting on the launch of the magazine, Anant Nath said, “The Caravan is the oldest and the first magazine of the Delhi Press Group. We are pleased to re-launch this magazine, which had been very popular earlier as well. The language of the magazine is very liberal with a narrative style of writing and it is being launched in the market with a new design, shape and editorial content.”
The January issue of The Caravan features the cover story on the India lobby in the US. Miranda Kennedy, a long-time South Asia correspondent in Delhi and now a contributing editor with The Caravan, investigates how the Indian-American community flexes political muscles in Washington DC.
The Delhi Press Group of the Publications is a leading magazine house in the country with 31 magazines in nine languages. Some of the leading magazines being published by Delhi Press include Grihshobha, Woman’s Era, Saras Salil, Sarita, and Champak, among others.
