By Madhup. Chandigarh, 6th Oct: After working with various organizations, churning out stories and features, working out designs and ideas for 30 years now, it was time to move on and do something that was, in a nutshell, ‘me’. Also, to give the Tricity, and the region something that was ‘them’. Chat On is not just a magazine you pick and flip through. It’s the starting point of a conversation; one which I hope would go a long way. Looking back, all I can say is that the transition wasn’t easy. From finances to advertisements to collecting stories to creating a product, it was nothing short of climbing the Mount Everest!
So, with that, I open the pages of a new chapter, Chat On, an English bi-monthly magazine catering to the readership of North India. As a conversation can explore just about any subject, Chat On reflects exactly that thought and sentiment. From lifestyle features, to business and education, food and fashion, gadgets and technology, health and wealth, the magazine will be doing a lot of chit-chat!
Chat On was released at the Kullu dussehra closing ceremony, yesterday.
In Chandigarh, a formal launch saw writer and columnist Dr Renee Singh and Jonita Doda, the upcoming face of Punjabi cinema do the honours. Also present on the occasion were eminent editors of various newspapers and magazines, known personalities of the city and corporate heads.
