This should be really interesting, I can't wait to see the models wearing Sari's. It should sell more than 80,000 copies.

From the people I've talked to over the years, I would think that a Indian maxim magazine will start a huge controversey, which does sell, but it may go too far and bring about some kind of serious fall out. I know of several folks moving back to India in order to keep thier kids away from MTV and similar risque' media here in the states.
I will be very interested to see what kind of response this gets, and what the editorial guidelines will be. Saris? Burkas?
Might have less trouble distributing them in Iraq.

hmmm - anyone else see the trend dating back to Friday. Each adrants lead story the last three days has some sort of nearly naked ass shot. I think Steve is an assman!!

80000 copies, doesn't sound real. Are they really printing so many or is it a typing error. Waiting to catch the first copy.
