"Aroon Maharajh is one of the new breed of internet millionaires. Working from the shed in the back garden he devised a plan to showcase new musical talent on the internet and Music Unsigned was born..." 

Asian Babes in Asian hands, Telegraph, March 2004
The new owner of Asian Babes, Britain’s first and only soft-porn magazine aimed at Indians and Pakistanis, said he had no moral qualms about buying the title and that he has plans on how to make even more money from the business.

In his first interview, Aroon Maharajh, a dynamic 37-year-old businessman whose father is an Indian from South Africa and mother an Austrian, spoke about his purchase of Fantasy Magazines, a collection of 45 “adult” titles, from Richard Desmond, the proprietor of Express Newspapers.

At first, it might seem odd that Maharajh, who has been brought up by a father steeped in orthodox Hindu Brahmin values, should take on Asian Babes. But for Maharajh, who moves briskly from one money-making idea to the next, morality does not enter the equation. “I don’t have any issues with it. It’s completely legal business, it sits in a lot of stores running right the way through England and in Ireland, it occupies 27-28 per cent of the top shelf. I see great potential for the business.”

“Aroon is very much an Indian,” emphasises his 63-year-old father, Kithandra Vebeecun Maharajh, whose ancestors emigrated from Rajasthan to South Africa “between 1820 and 1830 as indentured labourers” and who himself set foot on British soil on “May 20, 1960”.

Aroon Maharajh is happily married with three “beautiful” boys, Max Aroon, 13, Louis Kumar, 10, and Oliver Patrick, 7. “I love the Indian culture and I love the Indian people,” begins Maharajh. “If you come into our house during the week, you would think you had walked into an Indian house because of the smell of curries. My eldest son helped me cook a fish curry the other night. We eat curries two, three times a week and they are always home cooked.”

 Father and son are now planning to make their first journey to India. “My father and I were talking about this,” says Maharajh. “I said to him, ‘Now is the time for us to go back’.”
