editor’s note

Stay in, stay safe! COVID-19 is absolutely the biggest news story of our time and there is no denying it. The pandemic is affecting everything that we can think of - economy, health and our social lives. And our role as journalists is not only to bring you reliable & trustworth news but also to keep you occupied and engaged while you are stuck at homes, during these exceptionally challenging times. I realised that working remotely was difficult for us, not because I missed my super-coordinated team (thanks to technology like zoom, we are well connected), but meeting deadlines and other approvals took a toll on us.

A Great Experience An avid reader since 2015, I simply enjoy every page that TIHG presents. Each page spells reality – the life size images, the smooth and well-written text, above all the language and the tone talks about how in simple ways you can do beautiful things to your house. I also like the food pages very much. As a family we are fo o d i e s and love to eat at different restaurants.

behind the design

Kritika Soni, Designer/Artist, Kara Sabi Kara Sabi is all about... Finding and appreciating beauty in imperfection and reflecting that idea through handcrafted ceramics. It draws from the Japanese philosophy of Wabi Sabi that believes that nothing can ever be perfect, permanent or complete; and that the process of ageing enriches the experience of life, rather than diminishes its quality of life. Design to me... A culmination of personality, functionality and aesthetics. A good design should be purposeful experiential (be able to evoke an emotion in a person) and at the same time reflect who you are as a person. Through my designs... I wish to remind everyone to appreciate and acknowledge natural ageing and inconsistencies; to not see it as a flaw, rather cherish it and embrace the imperfections in their daily lives. I aim for…
