letter of the month

Global Art TIHG has truly gone global. International homes, real estate projects, artists of repute, etc. What makes a magazine a hit with it’s readers - the content, the connect, the feel and of course the warmth. I enjoy reading ‘Art Speak’ and ‘Designer Speak’ sections. The articles talk about the journey of the artists and the designers, and how they enjoy every aspect of their work. Such articles inspire you to think beyond the impossible. They inspire you to take up some form of art to create an impression and think beyond. Malati Swaminathan, Chepauk, Chennai Travel Sojourns As a family we love to travel and explore new destinations. TIHG as a magazine gives us amazing options issue after issue.

thinking beyond

While conservation was the core thinking behind designing and developing Biopod, the resulting features - a synthesis of ecology and sustainability makes it fit for multiple uses - as an indoor herb garden, a vegetable garden, and an aquaponic chamber (that grows food with fish and fish waste). Jared Wolfe, biologist and the creater of Biopod says, “Biopod was created as a way to engage people of all walks of life for a common purpose - to collectively make a positive change in the world by simply enjoying what nature has to offer.” Biopod mimics a natural habitat by employing Aeroponics, which perfectly balances oxygen and carbon dioxide just as natural habitats are able to do. It is a sleek development in ecotech. Once you’ve got your herbs, vegetables, or pets…
