TRYING TO GUESS WHERE SUPERMODEL Stella Maxwell comes from takes a keen ear. There’s the occasional twang from somewhere Down Under (New Zealand, actually, where she attended university); a breezy insouciance that’s vaguely French (coming, no doubt, from Belgium, where she was born and lived until age 13); and a slightly British clip that likely derives from her Northern Irish parents and international schooling. At 26, the globetrotting supermodel is undeniably a citizen of the world, but her spiritual home is most certainly California. You can hear that not so much in her accent as in the content of her speech. “I believe that thinking positively and envisioning the best possible outcome can add to your achievements,” she says in her apartment while changing into her exercise gear. “It doesn’t always…

because the bad does you good

LAZINESS Lounging around the house can actually help your body rejuvenate. You do need to exercise, but you also need to just sit there so that your body can renew cells and fight diseases. Take that, Mr. Olympia. RED WINE Drinking 150 ml of vino per day increases your good cholesterol (HDL), while the component resveratrol helps protect you from Type II diabetes, obesity, cancer, and facing the gruesome reality of an otherwise mundane and melancholy existence. Another reason to keep drinking. LOUD MUSIC Turn it up to 11! The sacculus (the part of the inner ear that responds to the beat of the music) connects to the brain’s pleasure centres, meaning loud music makes you happy! Unless it’s that goddamn dance song that’s been doing the rounds. CURSING There’s a reason you start dropping F-bombs the…

alert! they don’t want you to read these

THE ADVENTURES OF CAPTAIN UNDERPANTS by Dav Pilkey Banned because: Offensive language, unsuited for age group, violence. The leading comic at Banned Books Week in 2013, this one is a fun superhero tale. DRAMA by Raina Telgemeier Banned because: Sexually explicit. The only time you'll genuinely be interested in the life of a cool seventh grader. TANK GIRL by Jamie Hewlett and Alan Martin Banned because: Anarchic, absurd, and psychedelic. We actually think all those reasons make it a must-read. THIS ONE SUMMER by Jillian Tamaki and Mariko Tamaki Banned because: Sexual content and profanity. This coming-of-age novel is a pretty neat weekend read—we guarantee nostalgia. THE GRAVEYARD BOOK by Neil Gaiman Banned because: Violent imagery. Initially created as a novel, this comic follows the story of a boy raised by ghosts, and his adventures through the graveyard where he lives. MAUS by Art Spiegelman Banned because:…

in da club!

SKYYE LOUNGE BENGALURU Bengaluru might no longer hold the “pub capital” crown of the country, but it still has some pretty groovy places. Take the Skyye Lounge, for example, which gives you an aerial view of the city. If you’re gonna burn a hole in your pocket, you should at least feel like a king on top of the world while you’re at it! AREA 51 PUNE Located on the outskirts of Pune, this pub, which looks like a swaggy spaceship, is totally worth the trek. Inside, there is a circular dome-like lounge bar that revolves. The crazy space architecture, jazzy lights and awesome sound are everything you need to end the year on a f-aa-bulous note. PCO (PASSCODE ONLY) NEW DELHI PCO brought the long-awaited speak-easy to Delhi. It’s a “secret” pub where you…

the blind taste test

They experienced food through touch, taste and smell—no sight. Here's how these self-proclaimed food experts fared. PS: We're quite proud. TEAM EVELYN Tried: Stuffed jalapeños and beer and lime fish taco bites. Ingredients guessed: 8 Overall food rating: 4.2/5 “These guys make some really spicy food—I loved it! My favourite were the fish tacos—crunchy and well-seasoned.” TEAM MILI Tried: Chicken panuchos and Habanero pork skewers. Ingredients guessed: 10 Overall food rating: 4/5 “It was quite fun to eat with my hands and be messy for a change. I just wish you guys had given me a giant bib!” photographs by ABHISHEK GAMBHIR MODELS: MILI &…
