Origin of Chandamama
Chandamama is a very famous and popular Indian monthly magazine for children. The magazine is widely known for its illustrations. The first edition of Chandamama was published in July, 1947. The magazine was founded by B. Nagi Reddy. But it was Chakrapani, a friend of Reddy, who was the main force behind the success of the journal. It was his concept and perception and understanding of the reader's choice that this magazine overshadowed other magazines in a very short period of time. The magazine is published in six different languages, namely, Assamese, Hindi, English, Kannada, Telugu and Tamil and has a reader base of over 200,000. The never-ending success of the Chandamama started off with the never-ending stories of Vikram-Vetala.
It has also published long mythological stories which run for years. It had once ceased its production in 1998, owing to labor disputes. However, it restarted publications from the next year and continues till date.
