|Twenty four years may seem like a long time, but when you are having fun and you do what you love, the time goes very quickly. That is exactly the case for us at Desh-Videsh Media Group. This year, 2017, will mark 24 years that Desh-Videsh has been in print – what exciting and fun-loving journey. Some of you have witnessed Desh-Videsh grow from a 24-page black and white magazine to a 148-page full color magazine with a glossy cover. We wish a big thanks to all of you – our readers, advertisers, friends, and family members.
In 1993, Desh-Videsh began with a simple idea. Since then, the magazine has advanced from a modest compilation of submitted articles (any and all we could get!) to an award-winning publication that attracts well-known writers and focuses on issues of great importance to the South Asian Community.
Over the last twenty four years, we have covered a variety of topics and subjects. My editorial columns have mentioned those favorite subjects that are near and dear to my heart. If I go back and summarize these topics, the following topics come to my mind:
Indian American Children
|South Asian Festivals
Desh Videsh Media Group’s tag line states “Promoting the Indian Subcontinent since 1993.” For us, it is not just a tag line, we live and breathe it. When it comes to Indian festivals, be it Diwali, Holi, or Ramadan, we use the magazine as a platform to engage and educate our children about these cultural events.
MyShadi Bridal Expo
One of the highlights of each MyShadi Bridal Expo is the designer fashion shows. Models strut down the runway showing off gorgeous, modern saris and intricately designed lenghas from some of the region’s exclusive and well-known clothing and jewelry boutiques. Some clothing and jewelry vendors join the Expo from as far as London and India, so attendees really do get a look at the latest styles and fashions.
