Beauty & Beyond - Manasa Varanasi - Miss India

Dear Readers,
Dazzling on our cover, the winner of Femina Miss India 2020, Manasa Varanasi is a strong, beautiful and curious woman who believes that there is something greater in store for her. In our cover story, the stunner shares how she is getting ready to represent the country at Miss World, scheduled to be held in Puerto Rico this December! Though a beauty pageant was never on the cards for Manasa during her childhood, it was a strong desire to design a life of meaning and connect with a purpose bigger than herself that drove her to participate in Miss India.

As beauty constantly changes, so does its technology, main players and organisation. To help out, we have curated a list of an essential beauty guide, so read our Feature Story, where we bring you the best in beauty - hot trends, insider tips, expert product reviews and skincare, makeup, hair, and more.  

Moving on in People in Focus, we have two highly talented individuals from diverse backgrounds— Sipika Khandelwal and Disha Sanghvi. While Sipika is a jewellery enthusiast and owns her eponymous jewellery brand, Disha is the director of one of India’s leading makeup and skincare brands, MyGlamm.

In Sensational Spaces, we take a grand tour of Indana Palace in Jodhpur, Rajasthan. The perfect blend of modern comfort and palatial charisma, the Palace is designed to serve the needs of the contemporary business and leisure traveller.

Last but not least, head over to Wedding Moments to catch a glimpse of Rhea Kapoor and Karan Balooni’s big day. Needless to say, the intimate wedding was a true example of what magic and dreams are made of!
