Express Star Teller

By Kshitij Sharma, July 7, 2008

I have subscribed to Express Star Teller, a Chennai based Vedic Astrology monthly magazine and have been reading it for few months now, after the disappointing closure of The Astrological Magazine.

My initial impression of this magazine was (a) not very good editorials and (b) too many ads, as obviously the hangover from the previous favourite remains. Well, there are a lot of ads compared to AM, but what the hell… probably the commercial angle will keep the magazine afloat for a long time to come. Don’t we put up with tons of ads in the Times of India or India Today?

Although, I must admit that Star Teller has started to grow on me. Some of the articles in the magazine are pretty good, e.g., the articles on importance of Lagna in the present issue and the astro profile of John Nash in the June 2008 issue are written by some knowledgeable authors and are a good read.

I am not very comfortable with the magazine’s emphasis on Lal Kitab remedies. However, it could be because I am not familiar with these remedies and have not been exposed to them before. Do these really work?

    Hi,

    The Aug 2008 issue of Star Teller is in the stands. It has a very interesting article on the astro-relationship between parents and progeny.

    On thing that is very nice about this magazine is that they give a writeup about a rare temple in every issue. The current issue has an article on Mumba Devi temple in Mumbai.

    Thanks and Regards,
    Krishna
