Manorama Tell Me Why — Subscription

I started a yearly subscription to Manorama Tell Me Why in March 2007 by filling up a form and sending them a cheque which they have encashed. The cost was Rs. 150 per year and the cheque was for Rs. 170 to cover bank clearance charges as specified in their form. I started receiving issues of Tell Me Why magazine from April 2007 onwards. I have sent in renewal cheques again in Feb 2008 and March 2009, as per reminders and forms sent by them around January in each year; accordingly I expect my subscription to last until March 2010. However, this year I have received a renewal notice from them in October 2009 itself informing that my subscription ends with another three issues. I promptly wrote by e-mail to subscription@mmp.quoting my subscription number and asking them to verify their records. They are now claiming that subscriptions are for the calendar year alone and always end with the December issue. I have written back that this cannot be the case since my renewal data has always been the April issue and I have received no prior intimation of any changes; also, that they should have sent me issues Jan - Mar 2007 if what they claim is correct. The subscription people are now not responding to any of my e-mails.

I want to get an assurance from the publishers that they will honour their subscription contract with me until the last issue of the current yearly subscription, namely, March 2010.

I live in a rural area where such books are hard to obtain and a yearly subscription was the only reliable method to give my child access to this resource. With their present behaviour, I do not feel like trusting them with my hard-earned money.

I have a complaint on your April 2010 Tell Me Why edition. It is about a portrait of Alexander, the great. The photo showed that Alexander was a right-handed person, but in reality, he was a left-handed person.

Hello, i would like to subscribe for" Manorama tell me why" but have second thoughts after reading, the complaints and how unprofessionally the subscription is handelled, on your site. It is very discouraging, though your book is excellant in content. I am willing to subscribe if my fears are put to rest.
yes . even i haven't received my copies . seeing so many complaints i feel this publications is not trustworthy...!!!
