Chandamama was a classic Indian children's magazine that started in 1947. For over half a century, they created beloved stories in several Indian languages. The stories are known for encompassing many mythological, cultural, and moral elements.
Chandamama magazine is no longer in production and the stories are largely lost to modern viewers. This website aims to preserve the stories for future generations. Content on this site will always be free for everyone to enjoy!

Since this is a new project, I started with a few languages and about 5 year's worth of content. I wanted to get something launched so that people can start reading (especially around COVID time). Adding additional content requires time to process data, vet the output, and figure out server costs. If there is interest for more content, I will try to dedicate more time to expanding this collection.
I'm a first-generation Indian American interested in tech. Although I have not had first-hand experience with Chandamama magazines, I still felt their influence through Telugu stories my mother told me as a child. She is a big fan of the magazine, so I wanted to create an archive for her and others to enjoy. Please note: I am not the copyright holder nor claim any ownership of Chandamama magazines.
