#1 Tinkle Magazine 612
The flavour of Independence Day rules our fun cover, designed specially by Savio Mascarenhas.

We also have ‘Dotty and the Albino Dragon’, the First Prize winning story in the Tinkle Original Story Competition. Moving on, we have three popular characters this issue, Shikari Shambu, Kalia the Crow and the Defective Detectives. Shambu goes on a rollicking ‘Jumbo Adventure in Assam’ while the Defective Detectives have a spine-chilling experience in ‘The Horror’.

#5 Krishna's Secret
On this festival of Janmashtami or Gokulashtami, renowned author Devdutt Pattanaik in an extract from his book, 7 Secrets of Vishnu, reminds is that Krishna is an unusual God—most unconventional, whether as an endearing cowherd or the astute charioteer in the Mahabharata. ‘His mother is not his real mother, his beloved is not his wife…; his lovemaking is not really lovemaking; his war is not really war. There is always more than meets the eye. And so, only Krishna, of all the avatars, sports a smile, a mischievous, meaningful smile. There is always more than meets the eye, when Krishna is around.’
#7 The Secret
In 2006, a groundbreaking feature-length film revealed the great mystery of the universe—The Secret—and, later that year, Rhonda Byrne followed with a book that became a worldwide bestseller.
Fragments of a Great Secret have been found in the oral traditions, in literature, in religions, and philosophies throughout the centuries. For the first time, all the pieces of The Secret come together in an incredible revelation that will be life-transforming for all who experience it.
