Exotica

By the time we are in February, most of us figure out which of the New Year Resolutions would become an integral part of our lives and the ones which were made under the influence of impulsive emotions spiked by copious quantities of liquor. With the previous year having proved that life can be unpredictable, a semblance of bringing about some order can be found in following a pre-decided path by way of bringing about small yet positive changes in your life. So, working on improving your health, eating clean, exercising regularly or even living in the moment can make for long-lasting transformations that would impact your existence profoundly.
The issue this time around is reflective of the evolution that we have witnessed in the past 12 months. The rise of the OTT platforms during the pandemic has coincided with the dominance of talent over star power. And if there is one name — that leads the pack under the onslaught of this trend — it has to be Pankaj Tripathi, our celebrity interview for this edition.

One cycled across scenic stretches, the other tested her endurance to go on a challenging high-altitude trek, and the third alternated her workation with tapping into the wild side. All of the travellers essentially ended up doing what the heart desired rather than following the oft-beaten path. So, dear readers, do just that in the year....
