a celebration of Asian life in the UK. As a community site we aim
to write articles that will enlighten, entertain or amuse, and hope

are now succeeding in the UK more than ever before. The mass immigration
of the earlier years may have seen Asians corner the "corner-shop"

By bringing you UK-centric
Asian news, view and reviews in a digestible online magazine (and
email) format we hope that you'll spend a moment browsing and enjoying
who you really are.
