Mandate - - Editor’s Note -

I stood dumb­founded on the stage at a glimpse of 40k arms up in the air, uni­fied by the mu­sic. To my left was the man be­hind the show, grin­ning from ear to ear, watch­ing me ab­sorb the en­ergy, and on my right, were Dutch elec­tronic dance mu­sic duo from Breda, W&W, who were com­pletely in their el­e­ment. While their fin­gers con­trolled the horde, their head bang­ing fur­ther in­sti­gated them. If be­ing at Sun­burn was an ex­pe­ri­ence, stand­ing at the womb of the event, I had the time of my life.

Be­sides the sev­eral mem­o­ries of the night, the count­less ‘Say no to drugs’ plac­ards stood out the most. But the next day wasn’t so im­pres­sive, for we stum­bled upon a shock­ing story re­veal­ing Den­zel Wash­ing­ton’s dark side — a world filled with par­ties, drugs and women. Sad, but it makes for a vivid cover.

But don’t judge us by the cover. A bright sunny ar­ti­cle lies in­side fea­tur­ing Shil­long, In­dia’s beau­ti­ful se­cret. Then for peo­ple wait­ing for their dose of art, Richa Chadda, Kalki Koech­lin, Purab Kohli and Cyrus Sahukar’s theatre ex­pe­di­tion is riv­et­ing. And for mur­der mys­tery junkies, we present the real life, real time story of the De­wa­nis, which in­volves, mur­der, sex and a hell of a lot of money. Plus, if au­to­mo­bile is your call­ing, then drool over Var­denchi bikes.

I trust the rest of the mag­a­zine will keep you trans­fixed.

Till then…
