This year Contact celebrates it's eighth year of publication and the privelege of serving the local communities of McLeod Ganj.

Contact Magazine is Dharamshala’s community publication, which aspires to bring the East and West together in meaningful and beneficial ways.

Contact serves the Dharamshala Community, including residents and visitors, by keeping its readers up-to-date on current issues and events and by networking education, health, and service workers within the community. We hope to help our diverse family of people from all parts of the world to understand and appreciate each other better. The Contact staff and contributors hope you will enjoy and benefit from our modest efforts to build a community through communication. May love and peace prevail!
