Exotica

April proved to be a cruel month where the loss of life and illness were rampant while health facilities, medicines and oxygen proved to be grossly inadequate. But the glimmer of hope came from ordinary people, unknown strangers, who have been extending a helping hand to ensure each life counts.
In times of such gloom, our celebrity interview, tenor Andrea Bocelli's elevating voice can uplift flagging spirits even when you cannot understand the Italian in which he sings. While travel is shut for quite some time to come, our writers had taken advantage of the window that the dip in the Corona cases had given to venture to Lo Manthang in Nepal, a place so isolated that it is yet to make its way to Google Maps. And at the other end, there is a piece on Bhangarh in Rajasthan, which has the distinction of being the most haunted place in the country. Of course, before we knew what a pandemic could do, one of our travellers had walked along the beach in Sydney to discover Bollywood landmarks, which has finally made its way to the edition.
Venturing out for an iftaar or sehri walk, a favourite pastime of all faiths that are united by the love of good food, is certainly foolhardy at present. So, our chefs give you the recipes to devour Ramzan delicacies at home.
All this and more in the May issue of Exotica.
