THE TEENAGER TODAY (originally THE TEENAGER) was founded in Allahabad in 1963 by the late J. Maurus and the late Aloysius G. Rego, who wanted the magazine to be a vehicle of national integration, uniting young people from Kashmir to Kanyakumari in a bond of true friendship, understanding and love.

Since its inception in 1963, THE TEENAGER TODAY has been a friend to thousands of Indian teens, supporting them through their growing pains, sharing laughs and being there through their joys and sorrows.

THE TEENAGER TODAY is the only magazine in India that focuses on teen issues. It is their premier resource for all kinds of information, practical advice and basic answers to all of their questions.

THE TEENAGER TODAY contains 52-pages of cool information, practical advice and loads of fun stuff! It features articles on teen issues, careers, counselling, celeb interviews, fashion, music, sports, health, blogs, science & technology, and general knowledge. Plus photography, jokes, games, poems, posters and more!

THE TEENAGER TODAY, in its 55th year now, is the most widely-read Indian teen publication — not only do we cater to the urban teen, but our reach across small towns and cities is unparalleled. With its value-based, youth-relevant content, it has a strong presence in English-medium schools and colleges, reaching pre-teens and teens across India every month. Being 50+ has its benefits… parents who read the magazine as youngsters are now passing THE TEENAGER TODAY legacy on to their children.

Over the years, many changes have taken place at THE TEENAGER TODAY: the magazine had different editors, it has changed a lot in size, look, content, etc. One thing, for sure, has not changed — its deep love for the youth of India, and its commitment to the values that truly build the youth of any nation.
