Friday - - Editor’s Letter -

One of the most en­joy­able things I did on a re­cent visit to Ben­galuru in India was shop for books. One day, from 11am to around 4pm, I was like a kid in a candy store – load­ing a shop­ping cart with books, in­clud­ing one ti­tled The Ivory Throne. This fas­ci­nat­ing look at how the his­tory of Ker­ala changed with the ar­rival of Vasco Da Gama in 1498 is un­put­down­able. Anand Raj OK, fea­tures editor Shorter Ra­madan hours mean even more op­por­tu­ni­ties to ex­plore Dubai. This week took me on a shop­ping mis­sion – to Naif to buy wall­pa­per, and to Mu­raqqa­bat to buy ma’amoul. While there, I grabbed some Iraqi-style flame-grilled fish for din­ner. De­li­cious!
