    Why Magpie? Because I like observing these sleek birds with a tapering tail. And like Magpies, I live with the burden of being a 'chatter', even though I believe that I am rather shy, reserved and unobtrusive :).

    Special Interest: Magazines for Men

    Indian men's magazine scene gets another healthy addition; and UK-based Dennis Group adds a online men's mag to its portfolio!

    Starting November, men in India have one more magazine to look forward to—a magazine aimed at active, successful, professional men, who are conscious of their all-round development.
    The Indian edition of (US-based Rodale Press flagship title) Men’s Health priced at Rs 50, will be available on the newsstands from next month. The magazine is brought to Indian market by the India Today Group. Men’s Health publishing director, Pavan Varshnei, explains on agencyfaqs: “The magazine will serve as a guidebook for men, providing them with inputs on how to live healthier and happier."

    A press release promoting a FREE online men’s magazine with the very unusual name 'MONKEY' landed in the magscene mailbox today. Published by UK-based Dennis Publishing (owners of Maxim) the title claims to be the first men’s magazine in the world to bring its readers videos and movie trailers, latest in music and incredible stuff. The magazine will be sent by email to its subscribers every Wednesday. Each 48-page issue will feature a cover-girl photo shoot and editorial covering cars, sport, humor, entertainment, gadgets, clothes and user-generated content.
