When paper industry became sick, these magazine industry became the victim. These were good but not circulated widely and so during the transition period they could not stand. The printing cost also went so high. No government thought of protecting these to protet a culture of good reading habbits. The journalists and writers also moved to electronic media. And paper megazine like these became of no use. I really feel sorry for these magazines, I use to wait for getting a new issue of these magazines.
Let us make a forum to restart these magazines. Any person wants to come forward may contact me.

I dont`t know what happened to all these quality magazines like Dharmyug, Saptahik Hindustan, Sarika, Manorama. I live abroad and love reading hindi. I try to buy hindi magazines whenever I visit India, but they are lost in the world of English magazines. They get shocked, when I ask for Hindi magazines. It is really very sad that nobody cares. A big loss for people like us...
