Chandamama

If you grew up in the 70s in India you were probably encouraged to read Chandamama. This magazine is now in it's sixtieth year. I still remember taking the latest copy of chandamama to read in school when I was in the 3rd standard. I opened to read it in the Moral Science class and the copy was promptly confiscated by the teacher.
Looking back it seems quaint that we had a subject called "Moral Sciences", but then this was the 70s and we were fed large doses of Indira Gandhi's aphorisms: "Work more, Talk less", "Garibi Hatao" and of course frquent references to the "foreign hand"
