About

Kajal is the HUB for South Asian news and media.

Begun in 2014 with a small team of volunteer writers, Kajal Magazine has since expanded to engage a global audience. Kajal is published both online and in print. We focus on critique, creation, and curation, providing necessary thoughts on topics for the diaspora.
