The first issue of the magazine was released on 21 May, 2011. The new magazine will now be more progressive with orientation towards the liberal, educated Marathi family with content ranging from success stories, young achievers, gadgets, travel, finance management, grooming, relationships, parenting, lifestyle, world-cuisine, entertainment etc.  The content will provide the readers with a global outlook.

It will have special issues on topics that matter to young, progressive and ambitious readers.
