Mother and Baby India

M&B_Nov17After more than 50 years of being the mum’s best friend in the UK, and successful editions in Australia, Croatia, Indonesia, Italy, Malaysia, Poland, Serbia, Singapore, Spain and Thailand, Mother&Baby has arrived to add value to the lives of Indian parents! Reassuring, reliable and reader-friendly, it’s already finding a fan following among expecting mums and mothers to children between the ages of 0 and 5.

The Look :
Cheerful, international, pleasing to the eye, heart-warming, easy to read, visual.

The feel:
Warm, upbeat, informative, interesting, proactive.

The five-point vision:

  • 1.To celebrate motherhood at every step through positive articles and inspiring, beautifully shot pictures.
  • 2.To be the reader’s friend and hold her hand through the most trying times.
  • 3.To devote time and energy (which the pregnant woman or new mother does not have) to get expert advice, be on the cutting edge of baby and product news, and give it to the mother in an easy-to- read format.
  • 4.To make the mother feel like she belongs to a mum’s club, which offers personal insights from other mothers instead of being coldly clinical.
  • 5.To be the quick, one-stop consultant for everything related to pregnancy, birth and child care.The typical Mother & Baby reader seeks :
  • 1.Accurate information that’s suitable to the Indian context.
  • 2.Advice on various issues.
  • 3.Connectivity to other mothers and their experiences.
  • 4.An update on all that’s happening in the baby world.
  • 5.Product recommendations.

In the fast-paced lives that all of us lead today, it may be tough to reach out and catch up with other mums who are going through similar situations. Mother&Baby’s emphasis on being a magazine for ‘mums like you and me’ gives readers a sense of belonging to a Mums’ Club of sorts. A place where you can voice your concerns, vent your frustrations, gush about your littlest triumphs and look for encouragement from other mums just like yourselves!

Mother & Baby has an online extension which goes beyond the print magazine, it aims to provide a whole host of interactive tools and multimedia content for its readers, to engage with the Mother and Baby team team and other expecting and new mothers. Visit www.motherandbabyindia.in for more.

The Ideal Home & Garden

We are house proud. And home loving.And that’s what we are hoping The Ideal Home and Garden will reflect. The happiness, the contentment and the peace we talk about in the magazine are all part of the emotion we feel for our home. With work occupying centre stage in most of our lives, home has become that much more rare, and so, more precious. It has come to stand for everything that work isn’t. Familiarity, comfort, privacy, luxury, relaxation, recreation, personal space. Having said that, we’d also like to emphasis that The Ideal Home and Garden isn’t only about interiors – to label it that would be unfair. It would, sadly, narrow its scope. In essence, we are all about good, comfortable, wholesome living – the magazine covers all the pieces of living that go in to make the picture complete. It is all about the home (inside and out of it) and the life you lead around it.
Homes around the country (city apartments, country homes, holiday cottages, quaint bungalows in not-so-busy bylanes), gardens (from balcony trimmings and indoor plants to well-manicured lawns and terrace conservatories), market information, great gadgets, handy appliances, good things to do this season, value-for-money shopping (at home and abroad), gastronomic indulgence, house fashion, do-it-yourself delights, easy makeover suggestions and lots of tips, trends, ideas and advice are all a part of this pleasure parcel.
We intend to reflect a lot of the market trends along with creating and setting a few good ones of our own – to inspire and excite our readers as well as the market that caters to them. Through the magazine, we provide our readers access to a voracious marketplace, the ultimate consumer’s dream. Finally to put it all in a nutshell, the endeavour is to capture a way of life that everybody aspires to. One where everything is beautiful. And at the end of the day, we’d like to believe that we’re creating great lifestyles.

Smart Photography

SP_Nov2017Unlike other photography magazines, Smart Photography has to its credit names that have been synonymous with defining and recognizing benchmarks in the industry. Not only do we understand the importance of this wonderful art form, we have also been instrumental in introducing the world’s first and finest technologies to this part of the continent. Finally, the one facet that sets us apart, is our unbiased and true-to-the-core equipment reviews that have not only helped photographers decide their essential tools, but have also proved a source of constructive feedback for manufacturers.
So, what happens when all these passionate and dedicated people come together under one roof? The result is an inimitable photo magazine that is all set to redefine the world of photography and imaging!

Online Version

Smart Photography has an online extension which goes beyond the print magazine, it aims to provide a whole host of interactive tools and multimedia content for its viewers, to engage with the Smart Photography team and fellow photography enthusiasts. Visit www.smartphotography.in for more.

Our Objective

In addition to addressing the imaging needs of today’s budding photographers, amateurs and professionals alike, Smart Photography will act as a catalyst in the growth and prosperity of South Asia’s imaging industry. It will also set the highest standards in photographic journalism seen in our part of the world and will truly represent the industry vis–vis the government and other institutions.

Commercial Vehicle

cv_november2017From a low-profile, functionality first aspect the Indian Commercial Vehicle industry has made startling progress to become the cynosure of many a global major’s eyes. However this success story has seldom received the attention it deserves. Not only does the path breaking Commercial Vehicle attempt to set the record straight, it represents a hat-trick of sorts for Next Gen’s automotive division. Joining forces with Car India and Bike, Commercial Vehicle will provide clear, in-depth and differentiated content for readers across the spectrum of the automotive industry.

With its team of dedicated professionals who clearly understand what makes the industry tick, the magazine will span the entire Commercial Vehicle universe. The coverage will not be restricted to trucks, buses, utility vehicles three-wheelers and tractors. We understand that the serious player in the industry also needs to know about components, logistics, infrastructure and construction equipment. Readers will further find the road tests, interactions with key industry players, user tips and international perspectives much to their liking.
Commercial Vehicle has a very able man at the helm-Bhushan Mhapralkar. As one of the doyens of Indian automotive journalism, his expertise provides a ready head start for the new magazine.

Commercial Vehicle is a business magazine with a difference. The 360-degree value proposition of the magazine is aptly delivered with a healthy mix of business reporting and user-focused content. It also is available online www.commercialvehicle.in

To be the voice of the Indian Commercial Vehicle industry. We will do whatever it takes to attain that position and retain it .

Special Interest Publications

ngpllogo1Next Gen’s remarkable growth since its inception in 2005 in the fiercely competitive special interest publishing space is largely about self belief. A group of 6 individuals armed with a capital of a few lakhs, believed they could build a publishing house to feed the hunger for specialized content in a country that continues to grow at a torrid pace. With nine dominant magazine brands and successful forays into six business channels in related areas, that belief stands largely vindicated.

From six people the company has grown into a 150 people strong publishing major with national presence. The company now has five consumer titles, Car India, Bike India, Mother and Baby, The Ideal Home and Garden, Smart Photography and it has three business/trade magazine titles Commercial Vehicle, Power Watch India and Auto Components India. Among these titles Car India, Mother and Baby are licensed titles and the balance are indigenous titles.
