Exotica

In the blink of an eye, the first quarter of the year has already sped past. As we recall, everything -- festivals, weddings, socialising and more -- was low-key during the last year.
So, our articles this time delve into the laid-back. Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, our celebrity interview, believes in having leisurely conversations where he elaborates on all the binaries that a discussion can lead to. On the travel front, we gingerly catch the first flight abroad since the outbreak of the pandemic. Our traveller takes a break to Maldives, one of the few countries which is allowing visitors from distant shores. Then, another one on Florence, where the tourist reminisces about art treasures that he beheld on a visit when borders were open and free. Our youngest traveller gets to taste the rigorous training that recruits to the Armed Forces undergo. She comes back with her faith and respect in our boys reinforced.
