Pothik (Traveller) is the first Bengali e-magazine about travel. Though Bengalis have a fetish for travelling, there is no Bengali e-magazine till date. Therefore, to cater to this need of people and fill in the gap of a good travel magazine, Pothik has been launched. The magazine was launched in the presence of Pooshan Deb Mallick, founder and editorial director and National Award Winning Tollywood director Pradipta Bhattacharya.
Every month the magazine will cater to a few regular sections like cover theme, weekend destination, driving destination, photo gallery and a few more other areas of interest of the readers. Bengalis also have a huge liking for food. Hence there will also be a food and recipe section every month in this travel magazine.
A group of experienced lifestyle and publishing writers will be writing the content for this site. “We take the pride as we present the readers with carefully researched papers on travel. This will meet the needs of the travelers. Also we have an advantage over the monthly magazines which have the restriction of number of pages. We do not have any such restriction as such. We can carry as much stories as we can every day” said Pooshan Deb Mallick.
The editorial team includes Joydip Sur, Rajib Bandhopadhyay and Ranjan Bhattacharya. Monirul Islam Mullick is the staff reporter of this magazine. The logo design of this magazine has been done by Rabindranath Chowdhury while the art director of this magazine is Mahasweta Mallick.
Director Pradipta Bhattacharya who was present at the inauguration of this website said “This will be great for the travel loving Bengalis who will be able to get the knowledge of the place that they intend to go during their next holiday”.
With such a noble initiative taken up by Pooshan Deb Mallick, globetrotting Bengalis will now get an idea of the place that they will want to go on their next holiday weekend.
