editor’s note

Considered as an inspiration for the rest of the world, India’s rich culture, heritage, art and philosophy are so beautifully interwoven that they are inseparable. I have always been charmed and confused in equal measure. When I see something as beautiful as Taj Mahal, I wonder how such a magnificent structure was made without using modern technology.

The craving for a daughter again raised its head when I saw the May 2017 issue, ‘Kid’s Special’ – with the all new pink cover that reflects a beautiful aura around every girl child. The pink decor of ‘Creativity Loaded’, ‘Candy Hues’, ‘Small Wonders’ and ‘No More Adul-ting’ mesmerised me beyond limits. A very special issue indeed for me and my family.
