Tuesday was the closing day of 66th anniversary issue of Sadhana, a weekly edited by Narendra Dabholkar for the last 15 years. It proved to be his last work as the editor of the magazine. As was the practice, Dabholkar had gone through the draft of the issue a day before.
The latest issue is themed on influence of cinema and was planned to coincide with the centenary of Indian cinema. Established by social reformer late Sane Guruji on August 15, 1948, Dabholkar is credited for using the weekly as an effective medium in shaping society. On the choice of the theme, Dabholkar, in his editorial, had described film as a medium that has influence on everyone. He had written that the idea for such a theme came to him after reading India After Gandhi written Ramachandr0a Guha, an Indian historian and writer.
