Brahmin Today, the Tamil-English bilingual monthly magazine of Brahmins is named so, for specific reasons only. Unlike at any time of the long and cherished history of Brahmins, the need and compulsion to review the various aspects of Brahmanism is felt much today.
Getting glimpses of not only the past subjects like Vedas, Upanishads, Sasthras, Sampradhayas, Sanskrit, Carnatic Music and life sketches of Saints and Sadhus, but also of present day issues
like Brahmins and Inter-caste marriages, women liberation, reservation, joint- family system, caste identification and Unity of Brahmins and sharing with others are the aims and goals of our magazine “Brahmintoday”.
Brahmintoday in the print form was started in March 2004 by its editor Shree S.S. Vasan with the Blessings of God, his late father Sankara Iyer and friends and relatives.
With the firm support from Chuvadi, the lay-out content providers of repute, this monthly magazine has published 100 issues without interruption as on June 2012 and continues to reach more and more readers all over India.
To reach more Brahmins and make it available for reading on Web, this net edition is started. We sincerely thank Shree AKR of for hosting and maintaining
the website for us and kilvelur B. Ramanathan of chuvadi for providing the contents in Unicode. We request the surfers to recommend more people to visit the site, donate liberally and send the feed back promptly.
Apart from the magazine we have plans to undertake projects to establish Brahmin women working Hostel and Brahmins Bojanalayas.
