Via Himal magazine
The editors of Himal Southasian have decided to suspend publication of the magazine for four months starting June 2004 in order to reorganise editorial, marketing and sales efforts. More than ever before, Southasia requires a top class periodical that takes a dispassionate, professional look at the region as a whole, with an eye on bettering the lives of its 1.4 billion people.
Recent events between and within Southasian countries indicate even more than before the need for an independent and extra-nationalist approach to issues and trends. Himal Southasian remains the magazine with the worldview and commitment to carry out such a mission, but the editors feel the need to carry out an introspective overhaul. This is the reason for the publishing hiatus, which will be a period to examine editorial content, carry out institutional restructuring, energise region-wide distribution, induct new staff, and so on.

Hope the navel gazing works out in their favor, though from my limited perspective, the magazine was still doing great work.
