Carpe diem! Seize the day, my friend. No, not just the day but the year and the time to come. Resolve in the New Year that the past, rather than being a punishment, will hold out lessons. So read about how to go on a slower, more savoured river cruise. Get insights on the new kind of film outings. Understand how architects and interior designers have geared up to meet the new normal by incorporating changes in public spaces. Hotels, a business that had hospitality and the human touch at its core, too have had to rejig the way they conduct their affairs.
