Political stories too long

Congratulations on the inaugural issue of the Karnataka Today. I liked the excellent production and printing quality with clear crisp pictures and legible text. Selection of the articles is good and interesting.

Articles on Yettinahole and KalasaBanduriwere too long. Good luck and best wishes for the future issues.

I would like to congratulate the editorial team for bringing out the first English monthly magazine in Karnataka. The quality of the magazine and the design are appealing.

The first issue contained a little more of politics than I would have liked. But people’s agitation for water is an important issue in these times of water shortages.

I hope Karnataka Today will limit the political issues and bring out some interesting stuff for the readers such as glamour features, innovation of Kannadigas, special stories about Karnataka, its tourism and the State’s unsung talents.I hope the magazine would live up to the expectations of the readers.

Price a bit high

I saw Karnataka Today. It was good, but I thought it's price was a bit high People may prefer to buy otherr magazines like India Today, Outlook and The Week.

A little of everything

I was an avid reader of newsmagazines earlier. But my busy life killed that enthusiasm… It was not until I was sent a copy of Karnataka Today that I rediscovered that urge to read a news magazine. I subscribed to it immediately.

It is a quality magazine that had a little of everything, but a little more of politics. I found the “NRI Newsmaker” and the “Fun filled moments on the move” suitable to my taste.

What a wonderful initiative!More articles on food, entertainment, some light-hearted satire and fiction would make the magazine outstanding. The artwork, the paper quality and the content were all excellent. Together they augur well for the magazine.

Food Harmony pleasant read

Congratulations on the first issue of your magazine.It was refreshing to see a magazine of such high quality, which caters to the entire State. I enjoyed the read and found the articles to be fairly informative and well- researched. However, I felt that in an attempt to cater to the intellectual audience, it became rather too heavy to read about two major water related issues that are gripping the state.

I appreciate the fine writing. “Food harmony in North East” and “Dear Barbecue Nation…” were pleasant read.

I await your upcoming issues with the hope that the quality with which the news has been brought to readers is maintained with the same high standards.

I appreciate the effort put in to bring out an informative magazine like Karnataka Today. I am an admirer of the website (newskarnataka.com) operating behind it.

I am happy about your initiative in giving importance to print media in this digital era.

Hats off to the team for publishing articles on important issues like “Food harmony.” Good to read the article on “Meddling in elite private clubs' affairs.”

Maturity of Writers

The monthly Karnataka Today injects fresh interest into the minds of readers highlighting various aspects of advance made by Karnataka. The magazine also caters to the political interest of the readers, political -- of various leaders of Karnataka, thier policy approach to problems of the state and their attitude towards economic and social aspects.

The articles and reviews reflects maturity of writers. These points will augur well for the magazine. I am happy the magazine has included write-ups on sports, IT sectors, agriculture sector, motor vehicles, films, actors and entertainment.

Kudos to the editorial team, writers and all those who have contributed to the magazine.
