Hello All, 

Project Darshan (projectdarshan.com) began in early 2011 and it's first half thereafter was successfully funded by all of you! Most recently I got a call from Anjan Das, Design Director of Forbes, India about Darshan. It was thrilling to hear the excitement in his voice about what he had in mind for our collaboration.

Anjan said his magazine has a yearly flagship issue called the Forbes India Rich List (Collector’s edition) and felt my Maa laxmi would be a fitting face for it. While the proposition was exciting, at first I was a little surprised that a business publication would go with such a bold cover? But as Anjan said “It’s all about having a vision”.

Finally with Diwali approaching, the timing was perfect. It indeed became a blessed time for Maa Laxmi and Forbes to have found each other! I have a photograph of the magazine and a location shot of the magazines at a landmark bookstore in Bandra, Mumbai attached in here. Also to our great delight this cover made it into Coverjunkies most popular covers of the month. 

I hope all of you have an incredible holiday with you families. We all have much to be thankful for. 

Warmly,
Manjari Sharma
