Exotica

It’s that time of the year when everyone, animate or inanimate, looks forward to imbibing some divine nourishment for the soul. After all, the southwestern monsoon is embracing the nation with all its wateriness. On the side of the fine taste, though, the finest Indian poems and songs of all time like Meghadutam and Ritusamhara and some of the great ‘raagas’ have emanated only because of the romanticism of great poets and musicians with the season. During these months, one can experience monsoon in its best form, especially in Kerala where the monsoon first kisses the Indian subcontinent.
However, this time our cover story is about how monsoon, a season of joy, love, growth and prosperity, has its own drawbacks. It’s fun to travel, too. Starting with a heritage track on the ‘Mumbai local’, explore the south, where we have the hill stations beyond the Vindhyas and the Western Ghats: From Kerala to Tamil Nadu to Karnataka to Andhra Pradesh! And there’s more delight abroad. Jamaica, the land of wood and water, has a lot to offer in terms of relaxation, recharging and resetting your system.
To add charm, there’s the landscape’s astounding beauty and diversity paired with the natives’ welcoming smiles and colourful language. Fun-filled free outdoor activities can also be had at Washington, DC. For the connoisseurs, there’s the smooth blend of Swiss culture and exotic drinks and recipes to relish. To the musically inclined, we showcase the indie music scene in Chennai and its music ecosystem.
All this and more in this edition!
