First Malayalee e-magazine 'The Malayali Wings' to be launched


This is first such attempt by a group of Keralites based in Kerala, different parts of the country and abroad.

Most of the time Kerala is in the news for the wrong reasons-- Goonda attacks and record sales of liquor. The aim of the e-magazine is to change that image, P S Kumar Nair, (media), editorial board member, said.

The magazine and its website 'www.malayalifriendsgroup.org' would be launched by 94-year-old Indian classical dancer Mrinalini Sarabhai by electronically presenting a copy to Union Minister of state for External Affairs Shashi Tharoor on Friday at Ahmedabad.
The website will have details about Kerala culture, festivals, articles and blogs, a business forum to explore business opportunities. There will be a separate section for children also.'Akshapatram', where people can register to dispose of their computers and furniture and other household articles to be given to the needy has also been featured.
The E-magazine and website are being launched by the Ahmedabad based Malayali Friendship Group (MFG), a constituent of Millennium Charitable Trust.

The web based network,which began with 10 members in January last, has now 23,000 members from 68 countries in one year, Gopal Nair, MFG founder,said in a press release here. The first issue would be dedicated to Mrinalini Sarabhai in recognition for her contribution to Indian dance.
