Comments on Manushi
There are magazines and magazines: this world today is full of printed word. A lot of it unreadable. A lot of it trivial. Some of it is of value but only transient. Fortunately, out of this cloud of mediocrity, there rises, occasionally, a peak of excellence, commitment and concern. MANUSHI is one such peak. A magazine of contemporary relevance, garnished with rare courage, clarity and deep insight. It informs, reveals and educates in a way that is its own. A great learning experience for men and women alike.

P M Bhargava, eminent scientist, Vice Chairman, National Knowledge Commission
MANUSHI has never kowtowed to any authority—political, ideological or academic. It has
consistently tried to open up new territories for the ideas, values and worldviews of marginalised people. I have developed a deep respect for the journal, because I have found
that to know MANUSHI is to know one's own self a little better.

Ashis Nandy, Centre for the Study of Developing Societies
MANUSHI is thoughtful, incisive and enlightening. More than just feed information, it asks questions that should be asked. It should definitely be read by all those who want to do something for India.

Maneka Gandhi, former Minister for Enviroment and Social Justice
MANUSHI has been in the forefront of the struggle of women and minorities. Manushi deserves the support of people of goodwill everywhere..
