Chandamama Magazine collection (1949 - 2006) HINDI

Chandamama was a classic Indian monthly magazine for children, famous for its illustrations. It also published long-running mythological/magical stories that ran for years. Originally, "Chandamama" was started in Telugu by B.Nagi Reddy and Chakrapani, noted Telugu Film Producer's.

In 2007, Chandamama was bought by Geodesic, a Mumbai-based software services provider company. They planned to take the then 60 year old magazine into the digital era. However the magazine is currently defunct as Geodesic itself was found defaulting on outstanding loans and was ordered to be wound up by the Mumbai High Court. (Source:wikipedia)

    I was a regular reader of the magazine during my childhood days and was fond of keeping them in my collection.
    Now, I have bound volumes of Veer HamumanH Krishnavtaar and Mahabharta stories published in 1969-1975 and would like to give if anyone interested.
