Not now but then...Recalling my childhood and college days on the eve of Rath yatra festival, my memory lane went down to those days when I used to spend my regular summer vacation at Berhampur in Odisha. The regular visit to Jagannath mandir at Ghoshi Nagar and a daily visit to the local library might be the good habits I got cultivated since then.
I became a regular reader of the English news weekly - 'The Illustrated Weekly of India' and it helped me a lot to get updated with current affairs and facing the various competitive examinations. I settled down in life and got no time to search for the mostly fonded magazine 'The Illustrated Weekly of India'. Great Journalists like Kushwant Singh, Kamath and Preetish Nandy pioneered its great journey supported by cartoonists like R K Laxman.
When did this great magazine fade away? Of course, it was 13th Nov. 1993 but I came to know about it recently.
Can you share some of your experiences with various such magazines that went into the store of the past?
