Mandate - - Editor's Note -

Some might think win­ter is dark and gloomy, but I’d rather make it my muse and revel in its beauty. Agreed, the nip isn’t as con­spic­u­ous as it was in the out­skirts of Mumbai, but be­ing a win­ter lover means loving the chill at any mea­sure.

Daniel We­ber and Sunny Leone are rel­ish­ing this sea­son too. At our shoot, she pouted and he flexed his tat­tooed mus­cles for the cam­era, and we tried to de­code their im­pec­ca­ble chem­istry. But soon we gave up. They are gor­geous, suc­cess­ful and in love, and its bet­ter left at that. But we did try to de­code the jour­nal­ist of the sea­son, Ra­jdeep Sardesai. Like a true-blue ex-ed­i­tor in chief, he opened his heart, and au­to­bi­og­ra­phy, and shared his views on the ethics of jour­nal­ism and his per­ceived neme­sis, Naren­dra Modi. It’s a highly rec­om­mended piece.

And for those look­ing for light hearted sto­ries, Sid Mallya’s Bri­tish hu­mour is hard to skip, and so is Pierce Bros­nan’s take on hang­overs. Fash­ion buffs can in­dulge in an ex­ten­sive spread on the tra­di­tional In­dian drape, dhoti and take a tip or two from Gurmeet Choud­hary’s haunted yet stylish ex­pe­ri­ence of a chilly De­cem­ber night.

There is also the very fit and character ex­traor­di­naire, Za­heer Khan mak­ing our pages look good. And no, I haven’t for­got­ten Man’s Date yet. We got three mod­els in a ho­tel suite, and served them a bot­tle of cham­pagne and bas­kets of straw­ber­ries. And as they say, his­tory was cre­ated right there. Flip through and your win­ter is made. Prom­ise!

Till then...
