four things i love about this issue

1. A good product needs great packaging. The primary goal is to make it look beautiful and expressive. The beautiful pages on gift wrapping (pg 48) presents creative and unusual ideas that can easily be done without an expert’s help. Try them out! 2. Light plays a major role in making the party a grand success (pg 84).

letter of the month

Anniversary Dhamaka With the November 2018 issue, TIHG completed 12 wonderful years. An occasion to be proud of, not only for the loyal readers, but also for the readers community as a whole. Well researched content, full page colourful visuals, heart-warming features were a treat to read. Not to take away from any of the features, however, the article I liked the most was the feature on flea markets from across India. Such an article, I was least expecting, especially in the anniversary issue. TIHG made my day. Thank you so much! Best wishes for 2019, and looking forward to reading more meaningful and thought-provoking articles for years to come. Titiksha Ravi Parmar, Mumbai…
