editor’s note

“The number of women who have exposed the big celebrity daddies of many industries, is commendable. Their voices give every woman today the confidence that she will be heard” The festivities in the air always have a very heartwarming effect on everyone. Starting off from Durga Puja to Dussehra to Karava Chauth and finally Diwali, the month-long celebrations are a great way to inch closer to the year end. I think India is probably the only country in the world which celebrates so many festivals across so many communities, throughout the year. We should be proud of the fact that we recognise and respect every faith and culture with equal fervour. The diversity of our cultures and festivals makes us more tolerant towards each other, which is what the world needs…

loy krathong festival of lights

WHERE: Thailand WHEN: November 23 The name of the festival can be translated to mean ‘float a basket,’ which is derived from an age-old practice of creating karathongs (decorative baskets) and then releasing them into the river. Thai people make a wish as they place their krathongs on the water and some place a strand of hair or a fingernail so as to wash away their past sins. Loy Krathong is also observed as a purification ceremony to enlighten the mind. The most exciting festivities take place in Bangkok and Old Sukhothai as you can also witness folk dance performances and sound and light shows.…

It was built almost eight decades ago by their architect grandfather José Aguado, say the sisters, inviting HELLO! inside the stunning four-storey property, with its oxblood red trim, lush gardens and family-sized swimming pool. ‘The day our grandfather took possession of the estate, it was snowing. But he fell in love with the views and decided to build the house up here’ José had inherited the land, which had been in the family since the beginning of the 19th…
