Another person from the Mr. M.Karunanidhi's family gets into the media. This time its not the Cinema or the Politics - its Print Media. Mrs. Krithika Udhayanidhi, daugher-in-law of Mr. M.K.Stalin, have started an english monthly magazine, exclusively about Chennai and its life Style.
The magazine is interestingly named as INBOX 1305 - 13' 05" is the latitude of Chennai on the globe. The first issue is published this month - i,e. when the city celebrates it's birthday (The Madras day comes on 22 August 2008)
Magazine is little smaller than the tabloids and slightly bigger than the A4 size. Cost : Rs. 25/-
The best of this issue is the cover story talk with Kamal Hasan. He talks about his life in Chennai, his concept of God and lot more. There is a wonderful photo of him with his old Bullet bike. As this magazine is from the MK Family, I think there are more such interesting popular celebrities in the queue.
There are also few other good articles (one article about Interior Decoration on how a 350 sq.ft room is designed like a studio apartmens was impressive)
If they continue with the same good quality papers/print for all pages and the advertisement pages don't increase, then Inbox 1305 could be a good monthly for the Chennaites.UPDATE:
