The updated Kalki app for iPad is available now, and makes it even easier for informative, inspiring stories and articles to enhance your life.
Kalki was the pen name of legendary Tamil freedom fighter and writer R. Krishnamurthy. His "Alai Osai" novel, which he considered to be his best, won the Sahitya Akademi Award - and it's in the inspirational stream of Kalki's writing that the magazines for young and old alike are made available through the Kalki app. While the app itself is free, it offers value to readers who can subscribe to the various magazines and publications.
