Local poet Raveen Kumar recently launched the second issue of the Angel magazine which highlights issues concerning crimes against women.

The second issue of the bimonthly was launched at the Returned Services League Hotel (RSL) Fiji Limited in Lautoka.

“I always talk about women’s rights as I have seen violence against women in Fiji is increasing,” Mr Kumar said.

“I always support them and that is why I started this magazine and it is based on women issues.

“This is my way of contributing towards stopping the increase in crime rates in our country.”

Mr Kumar said there were many people who had inspired him in publishing this second issue.

“My mother is his inspiration who inspired me to write this magazine as I and my two other brothers suffer from muscular dystrophy and she looks after me and my brothers most of the time,” he said.

Despite suffering from muscle disease called muscular dystrophy, Mr Kumar wants people to recognise his work.

A muscular dystrophy is hereditary condition marked by progressive weakening and wasting of the muscles.

The 35-year-old of Rifle Range in Lautoka is the editor of Angel.

Mr Kumar has written four books of poetry which have been published titled ‘Touched by an Angle’, ‘Strength of a Woman’, ‘Heroes’ and ‘Veshali’.

Mr Kumar said the responses he was getting after the distribution of his first magazine was marvellous.

“My magazine is printed by S Designs in Lautoka. They print one magazine either for $11 or $12,” he said.

“I get money for printing my magazine from my friends living in Australia and New Zealand but now I have got a sponsor; Xing Long Kate Bar Restaurant.”

Mr Kumar said he couriers his magazines to his friends living in Australia and New Zealand.

“In Fiji my books are sold at Lautoka City Bookshop and Diva Bookshop in Nadi and some of my friends sells my magazine in Suva,” he said.

Mr Kumar sells his magazine for $15.
