Exotica

While many of us are still processing 2019, we are already in the last month of 2021! What do you say at the beginning of a year which has tip-toed in on the back of one which wreaked ravages unseen and unheard in the recent past? The past two years have been nothing less than a test, and a tough one at that, for the entire world. And with a new wave of Covid-19 threatening to engulf us as we enter into the year, once again, it is our behaviour that will determine the condition that we emerge in on the other side. Perseverance in observing safety measures is the need of the hour.
Our celebrity interview this month is a person who has stood steadfast in the pursuance of his art. That Pandit Birju Maharaj is a stalwart in kathak is not disputed by anyone but it is the way that the dance exponent has adjusted and adapted to technology that makes him relevant as he pushes towards completing his ninth decade on the planet. On the travel front, we embraced the restorative properties of the mountains. The sojourn in Dharamshala and Palampur brought much respite and serenity. Another of our travellers allowed herself to rise above the din of the city — in a hot air balloon — which changed her perspective about the ancient holy destination of Benaras. On another note, one could take off on a road trip across California to take in the sun, sand, good food and spirits to usher in the year. Or even go for a sensorial experience that the islands of Seychelles offer. All this and more in this issue!
