editor’s letter

Dear Reader, hope you are all well and safe. Trust the COVID-19 paranoia has petered down, drawing us to the reality of living with it, which is going to be the ‘new normal.’ The coronavirus is here to stay, for God knows how long, so pull yourselves together and get going. Lockdown 5.0 has started and it is all about being Atmanirbhar, or being self-reliant and looking out for yourself. That’s what our June issue is about. The lockdown period has thrown up many realities and taught us how to keep our lives simple, and manage it without an army of people and the frills around it. The biggest winner has been self awareness. We will all come out of it more evolved, more aware, and more conscious of how…

take the lead

Today, we are living with the new normal. We are working from home, and wearing masks and gloves when we venture outside for whatever reason. Everyone is doing their bit to protect themselves and those around them from the virus. And while we are adjusting to our new routines, young entrepreneurs and husband-wife duo, 29-year-old Aniket Parikh, and 24-year-old Namrata Parikh, took the opportunity to introduce an effervescent disinfectant tablet suitable for various household needs. With over 25 years of experience in the healthcare space, the Parikh family has been manufacturing similar products, with a similar product being developed and introduced in the veterinary space about 15 years ago by Amit Parikh, and since then it has gained popularity as an industrial disinfectant. However, seeing that a variation of this popular…

find that zen

The lockdown has made everyone sit back and take stock of various things. While thinking may be good, too much of it can lead to an overloaded mind. The pandemic and the resulting lockdown has sent many in a frenzy about the future and made them apprehensive about job security and health. “With juggling household chores, helping my daughter with online classes, and office work, I don’t find much time to rest. In the little time that I do have, I am constantly thinking about the stability of the economy, and how it will affect my family,” says Vandana Gupte, 40, a software engineer from Bangalore. Her mind simply didn’t seem to shut off. Relate to this scenario? What you and Gupte need is to declutter the mind and find…

makeup mantra

With over two months in lockdown, you might have aced the deep-cleaning approach to decluttering your home. Now, it’s time to add this focus to your makeup shelf as well. It’s time to get rid of the products that you don’t use often. As a makeup lover, it might be difficult to do so, but that’s how this process should end. Just follow our guide!

keep, recycle, purge, repeat

Wardrobe decluttering is a chore that is tiring simply as a thought, but on the bright side, you’ll do away with unwanted stuff and create precious space. And, if nothing, a decluttered wardrobe is way better to look at than that heap of clothes. Fashion communicator, stylist, and sustainability proponent, Falguni Patel, echoes, “As much as I agree with Marie Kondo’s idea of letting go, we Indians are inherently blessed with hoarding genes. I have been unable to let go off many of my clothes and accessories for the fact that I took a lot of time in screening and buying them. Apart from that, I love repeating clothes by accessorising in different ways, and mixing and matching works for me. However, it’s certainly important to declutter.” “AS MUCH AS I AGREE…
