making moves

Across the road from historic Shivaji Park – the cradle of Indian cricket and spiritual home of the Thackeray political dynasty – lies Bombay’s unlikely B-Boying bastion. At a small ground abutting the Arabian Sea, troupes of gangly boys from shanties across the city gather each evening to dance, sweat and compete. Their style can be loosely described as Krump, a key component of contemporary urban culture. Theirs are not predictable, synchronised Bollywood steps, but free-flowing hip-hop moves – a dance vocabulary that links them to a throbbing global youth nation. Dance has given these young men purpose. Is there anything more important in life? By monastically committing to their discipline, they have discovered a vehicle to climb out of their circumstances – avoiding the usual traps and snares. Their talent…

what will define this new decade?

KERRY HARWIN WHO: Writer who recently purchased a functional turntable after carrying two broken ones around India for a decade. Instagram @flashhardcor WHAT: “Dig It”, page 112 FOR THE LOVE OF MUSIC: “Physical media is valuable, be it a record, CD or cassette. The infinity of streaming makes music disposable. When one has only a finite number of albums, one knows every intricacy they contain.” “Robots, fascists and floods.” NEHA CHANDRAKANT WHO: Fashion photographer based in Mumbai, who is also a biotechnologist. Instagram @nehachandrakant WHAT: “Power Play”, page 66 A SHOOT MUST-HAVE: “An efficient and well-informed team. Nothing can make your picture work if the team isn’t in sync. Other than that, being calm comes in handy.” “Self-awareness and a focus on individual aesthetic.” ARUN JANARDHAN WHO: Mumbai-based feature writer-editor who tweets @iArunJ, but is mostly too lazy to do it. WHAT:…

The event kicked off with a Q&A between GQ’s Editor-in-Chief Che Kurrien and entertainment mogul Karan Johar, followed by comedian-host Rajiv Satyal keeping everyone in splits through the evening. The night ended with DJ Proof creating the perfect vibe for some networking and partying. GQ BEST DRESSED DELHI WHERE: Cirrus 9, The Oberoi, New Delhi There may not be a conclusive answer to where India’s fashion capital really lies, but Delhi made a compelling argument with its super turnout of the country’s biggest designers, urban culture champions, culinary experts, entrepreneurs and…

the lost poets of bombay

I realise now that 2004 was an awful year for English poetry in Bombay. It didn’t seem particularly terrible at the time, because it takes distance to allow us a sense of measure; to gauge what we have won or lost. And so, with a decade and a half lying between then and now, I see how it was a death knell that first sounded on January 9 that year, with the passing of Nissim Ezekiel. One of the most prolific and well-known poets of his era, Ezekiel slipped away, struggling to hold on to memories that had been fading for a while, his story and verse claimed by Alzheimer’s. It could be that the enormity of his loss didn’t register because he died much as he’d lived, unobtrusively occupying a…

like a supernova

It’s Saturday morning, and Lil Nas X is spent. At an hour when many 20-year-olds are still sleeping off last night, he’s under the hot lights of a studio in downtown LA, fielding on-camera questions from his fans on the internet. He does everything that’s asked of him, even delivers two line readings of the dictated script, but when the camera is off, he goes slack. “I’m sorry, I’m tired,” he says. This is not a solitary, one-rough-morning kind of sleepy (although, maybe it’s that too). What it more closely resembles is the chronic exhaustion – that sadistic combination of isolation and vigilance and personal sacrifice – of the new parent, which, in a way, is what he is: Nas X’s career as a celebrity is still in its infancy and…
