THE VICTORY OF JOY OVER SORROWS Come October and all negativity and sorrows are banished by the spirit of Durga Puja, Dussehra and Diwali. While sorrows are a part of life, it’s up to us to find joys in the smallest things in life. HELLO! comes in handy here because it makes me happy. This year’s Festive Special had the lovely siblings Sara and Ibrahim on the cover – both of whom have imbibed the beauty and grace of their parents. It was a treat to read about the festive rituals followed by the royals of Karauli. Lastly, Diwali is incomplete without gifts, so I truly enjoyed the Gift Guide in the October issue. R Anjali, New Delhi MORE POWER TO SARA AND IBRAHIM The HELLO! October Issue made me proud. I felt proud…

Fashion collector and style guru Irene Albright has provided many an outfit to stylists, celebrities and fashionistas over the years. And as there’s never a shortage of drama behind the scenes at red carpet events, the former stylist – who has dressed A-list stars including Beyoncé and Meryl Streep – has frequently come to the rescue in a fashion crisis. “I get panic calls from clients all the time,” she tells HELLO! from the poolside of her magnificent Los Angeles mansion. “Often, they’ve been asked to wear something to an event, and then suddenly choose not to at the last minute.

omer bin jung and anjum jung where royalty meets enterprise

It’s windy as Anjum Jung strolls into the lawns of her lush holiday-home, overlooking acres and acres of their family-owned golf course.

Of course, if you have read his newspaper columns, then some of these may seem like old news. But if you haven’t, then be prepared to view India’s historical sagas and unique protagonists afresh, through a multi-cultural window. The book is divided into three distinct segments – Before the Raj, Stories from the Raj and the Afterword. The first part kicks off with a close up of Roberto de Nobili who declares he will become a Hindu to save Hindus, ironically in a quest…
