Indian eMagazinesNo one that I know got a raise this year and costs keep increasing. My landlord raised the rent, though I managed to bargain a bit with a little recession sob-story.

With stagnant cash inflow, we need to make some cuts in expenses and for me it has to start with the magazines. I purchase an unnecessary number of them and since I don’t want to sell them to the raddiwallah, they eat up a lot of prime space in my already congested abode.

Therefore, I decided to go the Arnold Schwarzenegger way and put together a list of Indian print magazines that are available in a digital format (an e-replica of the print edition) and I was surprised to find so many. Also happened to discover a few that I never knew existed.

Most of these e-versions are either in PDF or flash, though there are a few in HTML too.

Here’s a simple way to slash those magazine bills in these hard times (the publishers might be a bit upset, but they earn more from advertising than sales):
