The Bangalore Review

About

45 members set this magazine as a Favorite.

The Bangalore Review is an online magazine aimed at promoting literature, arts, culture, criticism and philosophy at a deeper level. Conforming to our mission of giving back to the society, the magazine will remain a non-profit venture and shall be managed by The Purple Patch Foundation. While The Bangalore Review strives to inculcate the habit of not just reading but the reading of good literature in the youth of today, it also aspires to be an unbiased, nonrestrictive platform for young and promising independent writers. The editorial team seeks to strike a balance between the old and the young, the published and the unpublished, the known and the unknown, and the mainstream and the unconventional, while curating the articles for each edition.
