Publisher's Note Valentine Day 2015

Huma Bilgrami Latif with her Valentine, her husband Asad Latif

Dear Readers,
 
Love is in the air! It may sound clichéd, but that’s exactly what happens with Valentine’s Day just around the corner. It’s nice to have a day set aside to celebrate the importance of one’s relationship and recognise the special someone in your life. Did you know that love has motivated and driven people to do great (and a few crazy) things since the dawn of time? This week’s feature looks back at the famous couples in history, both real and fictional. We also speak with some couples in Hyderabad to find out how they met and how they celebrate Valentine’s Day.
 
On the cover, we have gorgeous Rakul Preet Singh, who is gearing up for a big year in 2015 with four releases on the way. Check out what she has to say on her career, romance and skydiving in the Cover Story!

Most of us don’t even run one marathon in our lives, but Krishna Prasad and Uma Chigurupati ran seven across seven continents in seven days! Turn to Grand Getaways for more on how they attempted and completed the World Marathon Challenge – from Antarctica to Madrid and more!
 
The Indian government recently named the awardees for the 2015 Padma Awards, and several eminent people from Telangana and Andhra Pradesh were named for the Padma Shri. Do check out who the distinguished ladies and gentlemen were and what they received Padma’s for, all in our Special Feature.
 
Last but not least, Wedding Moments captures special memories from Kruthik and Adithi’s big day, where several high-profile guests were seen blessing the newlyweds and enjoying the impeccable hospitality.

 

Best wishes,

Huma Bilgrami Latif
