Cosmopolitan (India) - - CONTENTS -

Can you imag­ine your life with­out all the tech­nol­ogy, in­no­va­tion, and dig­i­tal awe­some­ness that sur­rounds us? I can’t.

I of­ten find my­self won­der­ing what people did be­fore cell phones. How did you tell some­one you were stuck in traf­fic, and how did they wait at the restau­rant with­out Candy Crush and An­gry Birds? And I can’t even be­gin to fathom a life where you can’t Google re­views for that new beauty launch, sift through thou­sands of on­line shop­ping buys, and know what funny thing Kim Kar­dashian did 30 sec­onds ago. And don’t even get me started on where we’ll be with­out Skyp­ing (Say­onara, long dis­tance re­la­tion­ships), YouTube, Face­book, In­sta­gram, What­sApp, Pin­ter­est, and the un­lim­ited, live ac­cess to the most amaz­ing people, hap­pen­ings, and ser­vices around the globe! ( Psst... check out Vine—six-sec­ond videos that’ll have you hooked!)

On that scary men­tal im­age note, wel­come to our sec­ond Dig­i­tal Is­sue. Last year, same month, we launched In­dia’s first dig­i­tal-theme is­sue, and the re­sponse was so amaz­ing, we sim­ply had to do it again. This spe­cial edi­tion is ded­i­cated to re­search­ing, un­der­stand­ing and ap­plaud­ing the many ways in which the Web and tech­nol­ogy can im­prove our lives—and change them for­ever. There are some great sto­ries ahead, in­clud­ing sev­eral where we cel­e­brate our favourite on­line jour­nal­ists—In­dia’s top blog­gers! We also con­ducted an on­line ca­reer poll to ID your dream jobs, and got the women be­hind them to share their suc­cess for­mu­las ( The Top 8 Ca­reers You Want, page 100). Plus, find out how you can sup­port your favourite char­i­ties on­line (page 46), and get ed­u­cated about the prod­ucts that blog­gers and users are rav­ing about ( The In­ter­net Beauty Awards, page 154). Fi­nally, and this is re­ally im­por­tant, Cosmo is all sup­port for gay rights and equal­ity in In­dia, and have put to­gether a very spe­cial fea­ture on page 118 ( Girls Who Like Girls), com­plete with tonnes of myth-bust­ing info and some re­ally fun ‘les­bian self­ies’. As al­ways e-mail, Tweet, and FB us your thoughts, com­ments and ideas!

Till next month,
