Exotica

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. So, a mix of technology and the traditional Indian hospitality has come to the rescue. Technology has been tapped in when we want to immerse ourselves in art and so a virtual exhibition might be the way forward. Our celebrity interview, actor Adil Hussain, maps the journey of a small-town boy from Goalpara, Assam to international fame and recognition. Fighting the odds, anyone? Yes, much like what we've done this year, the actor has accomplished during his career and come out on the top. All this and more in the January issue of the Exotica!
