eat your heart out!

Out of CHENNAI (148km) Discover the Franco-Tamil culinary scene in Puducherry Puducherry is a fascinating mélange of French and Tamil culture, and the city’s foodscape is testament to that. Make Tanto, located near the airport, your first stop. It grows its own vegetables, makes its own pasta and all the recipes come from the Italian proprietor’s mother – call for the delish, thin-crust wood-fired pizzas. Once in the city, head to New Banana Café and dive right into the galette, a savoury buckwheat crêpe stuffed with tomatoes, cheese and olives. If all the savoury goodness has your sweet tooth tingling, stop by Zuka and call for the hot chocolate – it arrives with a spoon made of chocolate and two cubes of grated chocolate to be mixed into the already-luscious beverage. For…

experience mughal grandeur in agra, uttar pradesh

Out of DELHI (230km) Some of the world’s most indelible stories are rooted in love, and there’s no greater testament than the Taj Mahal. In June 1631, as she lay on her deathbed while giving birth to their 14th child, Mumtaz Mahal asked emperor Shah Jahan to build her the most beautiful tomb the world had ever seen. Three centuries later, it’s still the most beautiful tomb the world has ever seen. The Taj Mahal forms the core of Agra’s identity, so it is fitting then that you choose Trident, Agra to be your base as you set out to explore Mughal-era stories of love and war that the small, otherwise nondescript city holds close to its heart. Located five minutes away from the Taj, the property is set amid beautiful gardens,…

watch the frogs come out to play in amboli, maharashtra

Out of MUMBAI (490km) Amboli, nestled in the crest of the Western Ghats, is the last hill-station in Maharashtra before the coastal highlands of Goa. Every monsoon, it turns out into a playground of sorts. On the one hand, there are frogs of many, many species that come out to attract potential mates; on the other are snakes that lie quietly in wait for them. You might or might not be lucky enough to witness live action, but you will hear it – a chorus of croaks, a typewriter-like clicking, a low, clear whistling, and the steady patter of raindrops on the wet forest floor serving as the ideal background score. The Bombay Natural History Society (BNHS) organises camps in unspoilt little nooks of the Western Ghats that let you explore secluded…

indian indulgences

An uber - cool retreat in an urban hub THE PARK MUMBAI Mumbai, Maharashtra Strategically located on Juhu Tara Road, The Park Mumbai brings contemporary design, rejuvenating spaces, and innovative dining to Maximum City. With views of the Arabian Sea or the historic Juhu airfield from the floor-to-ceiling windows of its design-forward rooms, the property is striking both inside and out – a dramatic charcoal grey facade by architect Sanjay Puri cocoons 60 rooms in a monochromatic colour palette with pops of orange that perfectly reflect the spectacular sunsets that colour the interiors by evening. If you can leave your room, Meishi is an all-day Asian-inspired fusion restaurant offering Japanese, Thai, Chinese and a hint of Indian, and coming soon are a dramatic whisky bar with al fresco patio, a gym and spa,…

eyes on manga

Most rooms in London’s British Museum are devoted to civilisations that peaked centuries ago, but the current Citi Exhibition Manga honours an art form that’s still very much in its golden age. It’s the biggest-ever display outside Japan of its signature cartoon style. Although what we think of as the usual manga look, with those big eyes and preference for bold graphics over chunky speech bubbles, took roughly until the 1980s to crystallise, its roots go back to the work of Japanese woodblock artists. And, while manga certainly has a soft spot for cyborgs, there are plenty of series, such as Golden Kamuy (pictured), that are inspired by Japanese history (; until August 26, 2019; entry: ₹ 1,750). MANGA’S MODERN MILESTONES • 1940s: Sazae-san Nostalgic newspaper comic strip that echoed postwar social…
