We have received our subscription copy of Reader’s Digest Magazine (India Edition – March 2015 issue before a few days. It was quite on time delivery and here are our personal reviews and views for the same.
We consider – editorial – as one of the most important aspect of any magazine. It allows building a link between the editor and the reader. It is the place from where an editor shares his/her vision behind the issue and/or talk about the factors which made him/her to compile the content of the the same. This time Mohan Sivanand,the editor, shares his thoughts about “long-life”.
Our personal vision here is, the length of the life is definitely very important factor; but, whatever the length of the life is, it must be healthy. And yes, you must have enough fortune to live it comfortably 🙂
Pages 18 through 30 are definitely one of the best part of the magazine. It explores two main segment we always look forward in Reader’s Digest. They are – Everyday Heroes – and – Kindness of Strangers.
Everyday heroes – tells story of Max Boon. He stands against the terrorism without his legs. You can know more about him at: http://www.thejakartapost.com/news/2010/06/28/max-boon-for-love-indonesia.html.
The morals, ethics and human qualities makes us better species then the other animals in addition to our brain power and ability express our thoughts and feelings via a language. Helping others when needed, is something expected from any civilised human being. But often find it a rare case. So taking note of such good gestures is definitely very important. The cases talked in the issue will make you believe in human qualities. It also inspires others following the same good path.

The Children Who Lived Before – is an article by a professor. He talks about past lives. The article is targeted to a specific group of readers. It is however worth reading for all.
Another article we like to mention is about – FAST – the four words strategy to take action when you or anyone in front of you suffer from heart attack.
