Bharathamithramis a Catholic Telugu periodical, initially started by late Mummadi Ignatius, bishop of Guntur. Later in 1975 the publication work was handed over to Amruthavani. Since then Amruthavani took up the responsibility of the publication except for 10 years in between (1992-2002), when the magazine was published and circulated from Eluru Diocese.

In February 2003 once again the publication responsibility was handed over to Amruthavani. After having many consultative meetings, the printing and circulation of the magazine started in October 2003. At present it is printed in a book form and has 3000 circulation. Amidst so many difficulties, ups and downs, we are trying to spread its wings to all the corners of the our state.

 
     
  VISION & OBJECTIVES  
  The main thrust of Bharathamithram is two fold - instructional informational. The mission is visualized as follows:

Organizational Structure / Area of Operation
we have only one office, situated at Vaninilayam, 50 Sebastian Road, Secunderabad. At present we do not have any branches or editions.

In order to function and get more and more articles, news, subscriptions, we appointed 4 zonal coordinators out of which two are transferred.

We have our own Governing Body, which meets twice in a year, and General Body, which meets once a year to evaluate, assess, plan and to see the progress of the magazine.

At present we have Fr.Rayappa as editor, Mr.Y.Prabhakar Reddy as executive editor and Mr.K.Hrudayaraj as associate editor.

The magazine is printed as fortnightly and circulated from our office.

We do not have any official field workers, reporters or agents. However, now and then some BCC animators, catechists and lay people are acting like our agents and helping us to reach out to many more by collecting subscriptions & advertisements. They are given incentives for their services.
