I am happy to announce the launch of the Janaagraha magazine. Our team has been hard at work in recent weeks, to put this together.

Conceived as a monthly, this magazine will update you on important recent developments that have taken place in our organisation, across all strands of our work: Civic Learning, Civic Participation and Advocacy & Reforms. In addition to these updates, from time to time, it will also carry opinion pieces on issues that are important to our work. This magazine replaces the fortnightly newsletter we used to send earlier.

We have named the magazine ‘Urban Canvas’. At Janaagraha, we see urban spaces (cities and towns) as the canvas on which we do our work. The name has a strong connection with this fact, thereby giving you a good idea of the nature of the contents of this magazine. Our attempt will be to intersperse textual content with photographs and videos, to make for a better overall experience for you.

Urban Canvas will be e-mailed to all our stakeholders, in addition to being hosted on our website. Should you wish to receive this magazine regularly, please join the subscription list by clicking here.

If you have comments and suggestions on the magazine, do write to me at the e-mail id given below. I will be happy to hear from you.

Happy reading!
