The Indian Trumpet
Website : www.theindiantrumpet.com
Purva Grover is an Indian who is ten-months old in Dubai, and she is the mind & soul behind The Indian Trumpet magazine. That says it all! She loves the 24-hours open supermarkets here but misses the sabziwala bhaiya back home. She likes looking up at the sky-high buildings but can't stop thinking about the narrow galiyan. She relishes khubz but craves chapatti. In short, she misses India as much as she likes Dubai. So she decided to feed all things Indian to the starved non-resident Indians (NRIs) of Dubai through this magazine. And also explore her new home, Dubai.
A journalist by profession, her life revolves around datelines, headlines and deadlines. And she 'still' loves it very much. She has over seven yearsâ€™ experience in the publishing industry and was working as an associate editor for luxury magazines in India. When she moved to Dubai, she decided to start a magazine of her own. She has had a stint as a journalist and senior copy editor with some of the leading newspapers in India and has worked on a range of subjects like art, fashion, cinema, food, television, people, etc. She continues to work as a freelance editorial consultant and writer for Indian and international magazines. Over the years she has evolved from a journalist to an editor to a manager. While keeping herself abreast of the latest developments in the editorial world, she has become an efficient manager â€“ building teams and leading them to meet aggressive deadlines without compromising on quality.
She dreams in words. Her friends call her MS Word with a spell check, rhyme and feelings. When she is not meeting professional deadlines, she is dreaming of penning down not a book but a dictionary! She works decent hours, sometimes; insane hours, mostly. She feels words have a soul. She is in search of her favourite word. She is backed with a post-graduate degree in mass communication and literature.
