Outlook - December 7, 2015
Published from New Delhi, and printed at multiple locations, with editorial bureaux and contributors across India and the world, the general-interest magazine combines the quirky with the cutting edge in its coverage of Indian politics, business, international relations---and arts, culture, books and trends. The pages of Outlook have played host to the biggest names of Indian intellectualism. Its founder Editor-in-Chief was the redoubtable Vinod Mehta; the current Editor-in-Chief is Krishna Prasad.
The Outlook Group now comprises a Hindi edition, a travel magazine, a business magazine, and a personal finance magazine.
