contact magazine

Lha Charitable trust is proud to announce that it will take over management of Contact Magazine starting in May, 2012! Recognized by Lonely Planet and other international travel resources, Contact has been a very popular, free publication for Tibetan issues and community information in Dharamsala for over 14 years.It is one of the longest-running Tibetan publications in the area, and provides local residents, as well as international visitors, with news and issues centered on the interests and occurrences of this community.

Contact has been in partnership with Lha since 2004, with Lha providing office space and equipment to aid the magazine staff with production. As the magazine fully joins Lha’s range of programs, readers will begin to see a few changes to the familiar publication. Lha plans to print 700 copies each month, with an updated layout to include more information on international and Tibetan issues and breaking headlines. Profiles and contact information for the offices of the Dalai Lama, the Central Tibetan Administration, and some of the major NGOs in the Dharamsala area will also be included for readers’ convenience.

Additionally, distribution of Contact will extend beyond Dharamsala for the first time. Lha plans to make sure Contact is found in the variety of foreign missions present in India, as well as in popular tourist destinations like Goa, Delhi, and Manali. The magazine’s website is currently undergoing renovation, and will be available in Wordpress format in the coming weeks.
The core elements that have made Contact a vital community resource for residents and visitors to the Dharamsala area will remain the same, however. Longtime publisher, Lobsang Rabsel, will continue to manage Contact’s circulation, and the magazine’s focus will remain on current Tibetan issues and community news. Writers, both locals and visitors to the area, are encouraged to submit material, and Lha welcomes this new opportunity to connect further with our community.
