A Science Magazine is Dead, Jim!
We all flooded Twitter with our condolences when Paul Walker met with an accident and died. Didn’t we?
We at least posted one status update on Facebook for Indian Cricket Team when they died in the world cup semi final. Didn’t we?
Now, there’s a magazine which also died a few months back. A science magazine. Safari English edition.
The farewell note reads,
“.. Safari takes it readers to the exciting journey in search of knowledge, and this has been so for past seven years. Sadly, this will not be so from now on. The journey ends! Owing to financial unviability, Harshal Publications is ceasing the publication of the English edition of Safari..”
Those who have read the magazine once can confirm the magazine’s incredible content quality. They explained science jargons in easy to understand and fun way. They really put efforts to make science interesting for students (adults as well).
In fact, this magazine was the sole reason I found physics and chemistry very interesting in my school years. I felt like my girlfriend ditched me because I wasn’t rich when I read their announcement.

Sadly, it’s no more. The reason: financial inability.
As an Indian, it saddens more than anything else. Current youth wouldn’t hesitate to buy a Rs. 200 movie ticket or 1k priced ear phones. But a science magazine subscription? Huh.

(Safari’s Gujarati edition has just crossed 250 issues. If you can understand Gujarati, please subscribe to them. I strongly hope that it shouldn’t meet the same fate as their English edition.)
