Shaastra, published by Indian Institute of Technology Madras, is the first mass-circulation science and technology magazine from an Indian educational institution. The bimonthly magazine aims to bring a solution-driven perspective to developments in science and technology, both at home and overseas, as well as their impact on society.
Supported by the 50,000 alumni of IIT Madras, Shaastra fills a long-felt need for a validated source for in-depth reporting and analyses on current research. Put together by a professional team of journalists, it is written in a form that is accessible and engaging to a general reader. It is intended to serve as a platform to enable informed conversations between industry, academia, and policymakers.
