“Beauty to me is self-love” - Huma Qureshi

Dear Readers,

Huma Qureshi is one of the few Bollywood actresses whose name is synonymous with perfectionism. An actor known for her female-centric films and doing absolute justice to every role she plays, she has successfully made her mark despite being an industry outsider. Don’t miss out on our Cover Story as the actress discusses her journey and future projects.

Following two challenging years with the COVID-19 pandemic, health and wellness has been a hot topic. Now more than ever, there is an emphasis on both physical and mental wellbeing, and one way or another, 2020 and 2021 have been the years when many people have embarked on a wellness journey like never before.

The pandemic continues to loom over the global wellness market, and fitness is no exception. This year, consumer mindsets have shifted, and trends have evolved at pace: there’s now a holistic view of incorporating health and wellness practices that benefit us physically and mentally. Read our Feature Story to know more on returning to exercise after recovering from covid-19, what trends can we expect to see, and how they will impact the fitness industry.

Moving on, in People in Focus, we have two highly talented individuals from diverse backgrounds—the first is a fashion and jewellery designer, an artist and a stylist, Ratika Kaul, and the other, Vibhuti Arora, a PR consultant turned face yoga expert and beauty practitioner. Both the talented ladies speak to us about their craft, inspiration, and career graph.

If you’re planning a perfect getaway after the pandemic, do consider visiting Punalu’u, where you can get close to nature and forget about your big city life Beach in Hawaii, Check out Grand Getaways for more. In Mind and Body, we talk about celebrity moms from across the globe and how they took practically no time to get back in tip-top shape!

Lastly, be ready to get amazed by our Wedding Moments, where we feature the grandeur of Rahul Vaidya and Disha Parmar’s marriage. It was a true example of a special Indian Wedding full of class, hospitality, warmth and joy!
