A Science Magazine is Dead, Jim!

April 14, 2015

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..

Safari English Magazine

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 Website:

(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.)

Share/Upvote/Promote this if you like. Long live knowledge!

    SAFARI is an epic magazine. Packed with useful and thought provoking information from cover to cover. No adverts. Period. It’s really sad that they had to close down the English version.

    Safari Gujarati is the best magazine. Only magazine that keeps live war memorable-Bharat -pak war,war heroism,something lacking in todays education system.

      Yes, agreed totally.

      Their way of explaining a topic is effortless and captivative. Which is in contrast with any educational material, generally perceived as dull.
