Citadel - - CITAMAIL -

Your in­ter­view with Rid­dhi Do­gra was a very in­ter­est­ing read. The lady sounds like a real go-get­ter and is very sure of her­self. And yet, at the same time, she also sounds very down to earth and prac­ti­cal. We need more ac­tors who are ac­tors, not ‘stars’, who get car­ried away with the whole fame and celebrity mad­ness. Wish­ing the lovely lady good luck in her fu­ture projects. Govind Kamle

Ev­ery month that I read your mag­a­zine, I find that a city au­thor has writ­ten a new book. I am very amazed and at the same time proud that our city has such lit­er­ary cit­i­zens. It is great that In­dian read­ers are pick­ing up work from In­dian au­thors, and so many cre­ative peo­ple are fi­nally be­ing able to get pub­lished and find their mar­kets. And not just the self-help and man­age­ment kind of books, but fic­tion as well, which I feel is a far tougher sell in In­dia. Hope to see more of Shruti Upad­hyaya and her ilk on our book­shelves soon. Babita S.

Hampi seems to be the new ‘it-des­ti­na­tion’ in In­dia. First I slowly be­gan to see many men­tions of the place on my Face­book feed, and now quite a few news­pa­pers and Citadel also have cov­ered it re­cently. Some­times we for­get what a rich cul­tural her­itage we have in our own coun­try when we make our travel plans and opt for desti­na­tions abroad. I am glad our lo­cal gems are get­ting more cov­er­age. Hope­fully, it will boost the tourism in­dus­try na­tion­ally. Sh­wetha Shetty

I too re­cently vis­ited Orion Kitchen & Bar, and then stum­bled across your mag­a­zine’s ar­ti­cle on the same. Though I am usu­ally a tra­di­tion­al­ist, I was quite im­pres­sive with this new-age molec­u­lar cui­sine. It was not great in its pre­sen­ta­tion, it de­liv­ered on the taste as well. The fact that the menu was a mish-mash of In­dian, East­ern and West­ern cuisines did not take away from the ex­pe­ri­ence one bit. Gay­athri Ra­manan

I was happy to see your cov­er­age on the med­i­cal field with your in­ter­view on a city or­tho­don­tist. Up un­til a few years ago I think, the mag­a­zine had a reg­u­lar col­umn on Health, and I thought it was a good one. I won­dered why you’ll dis­con­tin­ued it? I hope you re­sume it some­times, as well as cov­er­ing more folks do­ing med­i­cal work. Dr Mayank Rathore

I re­ally like your Beau­ti­ful Homes sec­tion. Pune has peo­ple with taste, as well as good ar­chi­tects and in­te­rior de­sign­ers. Our bun­ga­lows rub shoul­ders with apart­ment build­ings, and it all gives the city a won­der­ful char­ac­ter that I don’t find so much else­where in other cities of the state. Sushil Pun­jabi
