New direction:

Sruti has received a fresh impetus with the recent recasting of the Sruti Foundation resulting in the trust being headed by N.Sankar, Chairman of The Sanmar Group, and infusion of new professional expertise in the inclusion of V.Vaidyanathan and Sukanya Sankar. The new management has some exciting plans for the expansion of the magazine's reach, enhancing its visual appeal and introduction of new features, besides putting it on a sound financial footing. Some of these ideas are already being put into practice and the magazine has moved to a convenient, well-appointed location, with contemporary facilities in technology and connectivity.
