'Vasudha' is a well-known Hindi literary quarterly magazine that collects short stories, poetry, essays, memoirs, ghazals, and other works of literature.

The objective behind its publication is to promote Hindi Language among all Indians and Non-Indians who are residing abroad.  It is a reflection of our national heritage and voices the thoughts of many experienced and up coming writers.  Vasudha is a celebration of Hindi literary talent that exists universally and unites everyone with a common bonding of thrive for reading authentic literature.
