Friday - - Editor’s Letter -

Last week­end saw me ring in my 25th birth­day in the firm be­lief that you are never too old for birth­day cake. In my case, two cakes, one of which was this gor­geous choco­latepomegranate cre­ation by Fri­day’s art editor Mark. What can I say? I have the best col­leagues, ever. Shreeja Ravin­dranathan, leisure writer

Last week I con­quered my fear of heights and flew in a hot air bal­loon for the very first time – with a falcon for com­pany. I am ex­tremely proud of my­self for do­ing it – to sayI was pet­ri­fied is an un­der­state­ment. You can read all about my ex­pe­ri­ence with this new con­cept, and how you can do it, in next week’s Fri­day! Ve­rina Durand, se­nior pic­ture editor

Ra­jasthan fea­tured on my must-see list for ages and I fi­nally man­aged to visit this stunning desert state. While I was im­pressed by its her­itage, es­pe­cially Jan­tar Man­tar (above), it was the lo­cal food – ker san­gri, laal maans – that I to­tally rel­ished. I could not have enough! Mri­nal Shekar, deputy editor
