9th Anniversary Special

Dear Readers,

At the onset, here’s thanking all of you—our readers, advertisers, and social media followers for your support through our journey of 9 years. Our growth and success just wouldn’t have been possible without you all. Our 9th anniversary copy also marks our 470th issue, a big number indeed, and this time too we’ve got many special features and articles to look out for; beginning with the cover, which has everyone’s favourite bhai, Salman Khan, and the gorgeous Jacqueline Fernandez, in a stunning frame, shot for the Being Human Jewellery campaign. Cover Story has more details about the brand, which is the brainchild of Salman himself.

Our Feature this month is a spectacular compilation of India’s 25 most glamorous people, from various walks of life. Read up on their style mantra or drool over the splendid pictures like we did while putting this together.

In People we have three highly talented individuals from diverse backgrounds—ace couturier Raghavendra Rathore, interior designer Raseel Gujral Ansal; and artist and heir of the Vazifdar family and
daughter-in-law of the Poonawalla family, Michelle Poonawalla. And In the Spotlight is co-founder of Amrapali— one of India’s most successful jewellery brands, Tarang Arora. Each one speaks to us about their career graph and how they manage their personal and professional lives. If you are a connoisseur of beautiful architecture or just someone who’s intrigued by the country’s heritage and history, you’re sure to love this month’s Sensational Spaces.

We have two breathtaking palaces—the Laxmi Vilas Palace in Baroda and Hutheesing Haveli in Ahmedabad, belonging to the Gaekwad and Hutheesing families respectively. 2016 has been all about women in terms of Bollywood, with several women-centric films being made and actresses being given equal recognition as their male counterparts. Taking this thought forward, in the Special Feature we have four of India’s top female chefs who’ve made it big in the culinary field. Lastly, in Wedding Moments we have photographs from Yuvraj Singh and Hazel Keech’s big day.

We sure hope you enjoy this issue as much as we’ve enjoyed putting it together!

Last but not least, move on to Wedding Moments wherein we have pictures of Aksheina Khanna and Rahul Kumar’s big day as well as Kishwer Merchantt and Suyyash Rai’s pre-wedding ceremonies.
