Neighbouring countries today can barely talk to one another, much less speak in a common voice. Himal strives to define, nurture, and amplify that voice. In an age of competing nationalisms and complex crises, Himal insists on the cross-border, pro-people nature of our possibilities and problems.
A digital magazine in its current incarnation, we publish a wide variety of articles, from sharp commentaries and longform reportage, to reviews and essays, focusing not on news but in-depth journalism. No subject is taboo for Himal, as long as it comes with good argument and sound style. Independent, non-nationalist, pan-regionalist – Himal tells Indians and Nepalis about Pakistanis, Bhutanese and Afghans; Sri Lankans, Bangladeshis and Burmese about Tibetans and Maldivians; and the rest of the world about this often-overlooked region.
