aseem and divya chauhan

Their chemistry is not the stuff of romantic bibles. Instead, there is a familiar calmness that they exude in each other’s presence – there is no over-the-top fawning over each other, but a kind of old-world elegance in the manner that Aseem and Divya meet each other as man and wife. You can tell it isn’t a practiced social art, but an extension of who they are as individuals. Aseem – the President of Amity Innovation Incubator, the CEO of Amity Capital Ventures and the Chancellor of Amity University, known for their emphatic contributions to the Indian education system – is a gentleman in every respect, who would rather his work speaks for him. He tends to skip most top honours and achievements conferred on him as we go over his…

NARENDRA MODI MR INDIA NaMo has in many ways become the undisputed sun king of Indian politics. His opponents hate him and the people of India love him (at least most of them) giving him a thumping victory in the recent elections and a majority in the Lok Sabha, the enormity of which hasn’t been realised since we won our independence. While his detractors termed him the chowkidar chor and tried to re-enliven his Godhra past, Modi stood strong and never wavered in the face of an almost obsessed, hate-filled opposition. Rafael never became into the controversy Rahul Gandhi had hoped would win him the election and neither were demonetisation and GST viewed as policies that would topple the saffron emperor. This election also signified a major departure from vanilla campaigning. Both sides…

On your mind… “I am, generally, in a happy state of mind. I take things as they come. As long as I have delivered my best in a given circumstance, I am happy with whatever is the outcome. Having said that, 2018 was not an easy year for me. Although I was the fastest among all the six drivers in my team, as a team, we struggled to compete with the rest of the grid. That was extremely frustrating, but it was a learning experience that will help in the future. My current team, Prema, has a very competitive car. I am excited for 2019 and it is up to me to deliver, now.” Working on… “As you progress in motorsports, the opportunity to test (practice) gets very limited – it…

I am going to Milan and will take it from there… gonna go see Florence, Rome and Venice.” Working on… “I have already started work on my next feature, I don’t want to take a long break this time. That apart, we have lots of plans for Dharma 2.0, which is our ad division – we make only ad films and music videos. It’s a division I ran for the…

ONE FOR THE MIND AND THE BODY Since HELLO! has become synonymous with good living, I reckon that the magazine is best described as the “Hiuen Tsang” or “Xuanzang” of print because of the manner in which you cover travel and wellness-related features – much like the iconic scholar and traveller discovered new destinations and cultures. Kriti Sanon on the cover was like a breath of fresh and cool air on a summer morning. The actress, who has already proved her mettle in films, adds life to the travel issue. While the Travel Diaries will help many readers be equipped for holidays, the 360-degree coverage of the best destinations in the world is perfect for those still planning to embark on new journeys. Features like Hit the Reset Button, Glamp It…
