Welcome to the Fifth Anniversary edition of NRI Pulse!

Welcome to the Fifth Anniversary edition of NRI Pulse!

Five years could mean a lifetime in the life of a business. We are happy to be here to talk about our journey! What began five years ago, as a vision to inform, educate and connect the community through news and happenings, has today grown into a reputed household name in the region. We are deeply humbled and honored to have this opportunity to serve the community.

Naysayers predicted that a newspaper would not survive in a market filled with glossy magazines. Others said the recession would swallow our efforts. But the faith invested in us by our readers and advertisers quickly turned the naysayers into believers. 

Being a free newspaper, the support of our advertisers has been vital to our survival. I cannot thank our local businesses enough for having faith in NRI Pulse, and providing such encouraging support through the last five years..

Over the years, NRI Pulse has had its pulse on matters that affect us all- the housing crisis, recession, rising gas prices, unemployment and so on or et al. We have done in-depth special reports on current issues and people in the news - the Bhutanese immigrants in Atlanta, the immigration reform bill, the state of the IT industry to name a few. We have, month after month, disseminated information about the various activities of the Atlanta South Asian communities through our local reporting. We have invited community leaders to write about share their expertise, views and visions on community matters to help and guide the community. 

We have strived to make the paper an interesting mix of local and national news, and combined this with the latest happenings in India and in the business, health, tech, Bollywood, and fashion world, to offer our readers great reading material month after month. 

We couldn’t have done it without our troopers- our little group of passionate writers and contributors, who have month after month filled our pages with current news and exciting features. Mahadev Desai, Ravi R. Ponangi, Jyothsna Hegde, Kurinji Vedaiyan, Supriya DG, Divya Dubey, PS Lakshmi Rao, Aqsa Zareen Farooqui, Rani Sharma - thank you for your valuable contributions through the years.

This special issue has several special reports and features that are in keeping with our commitment to providing in-depth, informative and interesting Atlanta-centric content. Do not miss Supriya D G’s special report on the evolution of the Atlanta Indian community over the past decades. Dr. Seshu Sarma goes down memory lane about the community’s efforts to keep Indian arts and culture alive. On the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the Telegu Association of Metro Atlanta (TAMA), Dr P.V. Rao writes about the growth of the Telugu community in Atlanta.

Going forward, we hope to expand our reach and our content quality. We realize that there is a lot more we can do to serve the community better. I welcome your feedback and participation on how best we can work together to making NRI Pulse truly reflect your vision and serve your on-going needs. If you have suggestions on what you’d like to read in NRI Pulse, please email me at
