NEZINE is an online magazine focusing on India’s Northeast region, published by NEZINE MEDIA. It makes efforts to bridge the information gap on the region – a repository of traditional knowledge, a bio-diversity hotspot and a living museum of cultural diversities. We generate and publish content that add to a state-of-the-art digital archive of quality information about the region.

NEZINE provides a platform for publication of news, features and articles on wide-ranging subjects and issues which will help its visitors derive their own notions about the region instead of looking at it through fixed frames of perception about its geography, history, society, culture and tradition.
