The July issue reflects on the times we live in and documents it at the same time. So, our stories reflect the transformation that has occurred during the pandemic. Our celebrity interview for the month, Vidya Balan was a force to reckon with even before the pandemic hit. With a shift to the OTT platforms, which are not driven by male star power, she has further consolidated her position with films like Sherni, Shakuntala Devi, which have oddball women - who do not fit in with the conventions - as the protagonists. Thus, showcasing successful women, who are different from the norm, on-screen while being one herself. Then, one of our writers documents his three-month-long sojourn through 16 villages. Not only did he get the time to take in the beauty of the Himalayas but it also allowed him an opportunity to reflect on the larger picture of life, his relationships and work-life balance. Cycling, as a hobby and a fitness regime, has taken off since the time the pandemic started. One of our writers teaches you how to pack your ride and take it along with you on a flight. One of the flip sides of our stay-at-home culture is a spike in screen usage - be it laptops, televisions or phones - and the consequent eye problems. Experts tell you what are the best ways to avert, or at least reduce, these. William Dalrymple, the Scottish historian and writer best known for his riveting historicals, has documented the places he went to as he tracked the footsteps of several figures of yore. And another of our regular contributors traces his journey that yielded mesmerising black & white photographs which seem to stand All this and more in the issue.
