The Home-Grown Issue

August 2022

Imagine a magnificent tree that’s firmly grounded in its roots, while its many branches, leaves, and flowers spring outward towards the sky’s endless horizons. That’s India for you—a land where age-old cultures and traditions mingle with the youthful exuberance of boundless future opportunities. This month, as we commemorate our country’s 75th Independence Day, we honour this delightful dichotomy in our special Home-Grown issue, filled with features about the many wonders of our nation. Traverse through Northeast India to explore the allure of Arunachal Pradesh through an artist’s inviting watercolour sketches. Or dive into the artistic textile and pottery traditions of our country and give your wardrobe and home a desi makeover. Feel the pride while relishing the flavourful success of Indian cuisine across the world. And enjoy a tête-à-tête with actor Ali Fazal, who tells us about his tryst with Hollywood and international cinema. For some international adventure, we head to Switzerland to explore its summery charms through an array of fun activities. And discover the marvellous experiences on offer at eight of the world’s prettiest, small towns. Finally, we present a specially curated list of the best family-friendly cars and must-have jewellery, fashion, beauty, and home décor products.
