‘GUJARAT’, a Govt. of Gujarat publication and fortnightly magazine had an unaccredited circulation of mere 15000 copies for 30 years, but the scenario became entirely different within very short period after Sudhir S. Raval shouldered the responsibility as an executive editor of ‘Gujarat’ magazine, given to him by Shri Narendra Modi, the Hon’ble Chief Minister of Gujarat. To the surprise of many, he became successful even in government functioning, for cultivating leadership attitude and team spirit within the circle, which resulted in amazing public participation to the extent that magazine received more than one lac subscriptions in a single day in Surat. Hon’ble Chief Minister of Gujarat publicly praised him and announced with pride that a government magazine ‘Gujarat’ is now the magazine having highest circulation among any in Gujarat.
Hence, the utmost responsibility which was given by Hon’ble Chief Minister with full confidence in his ability was justified by him by his tireless dedicated work, ability to express the truth, patriotism, courage and positive journalism. It helped the magazine achieve an exuberant number of 2,30,000 circulations across cities, towns, and villages of Gujarat and also lay strong foundation which exists till date. Today it is most popular magazine in Gujarat having circulation of more than 5 lakhs. This has never happened in the history of media.
