It takes ef­fort

Citadel - - CITADESK - — Sapna Sarfare sapna.ci­tadel@gmail.com

to make sure the right sto­ries reach the very dis­cern­ing Punekar. The city thrives on be­ing of­fered qual­ity stuff. The harder the task, the more in­ter­est­ing it gets for us to push the en­ve­lope. We just love great chal­lenges. So, on the quest to find the right per­son to grace my third is­sue as the editor of Ci­tadel, we dis­cov­ered the per­fect per­son – Shruti Marathe. Who else but this Puneri mulgi to grace the cover? When you meet Shruti, you get the im­pres­sion of an in­tel­li­gent wo­man who makes her own choices and stands by them. Be it her movies in the South, where she was the bold (and beau­ti­ful) Shruti, or her se­rial Radha Hi Bawari that was about the love be­tween an older wo­man and younger man, she is not one to shy away from in­ter­est­ing choices. Her movies and se­ri­als re­flect her need to do some­thing that can en­able her tal­ent to come forth. Her present se­rial on Zee Marathi, Jaago Mo­han Pyaare, has her play a ge­nie com­ing to aid help­less Mo­han, and she is win­ning hearts with it. Calm, com­posed and fun, in­ter­view­ing Shruti Marathe is an ab­so­lute de­light. Read the interview to know the real Shruti. Marathi en­ter­tain­ment lovers will be glad to read about their other heart­throb – Swwapnil Joshi, who re­cently fin­ished his rather pop­u­lar talk show, No. 1 Yaari with Swwapnil. He is an­other rather open spir­ited per­son who knows what he wants. In­ter­view­ing the very can­did Swwapnil is a treat and it can be seen in the interview. Be pre­pared to get in­tro­duced to the dy­namic Chirag Shah, whose Ar­rista School of Fi­nesse is mak­ing the art of groom­ing your­self much eas­ier. He talks about the need for such a school and for peo­ple to start think­ing se­ri­ously about fine tun­ing them­selves. It was quite in­ter­est­ing to know some­one like Shwetha Bha­tia, who has be­come a name to reckon with in the male dom­i­nated sport of body build­ing. Read about her us­ing her ‘strength’ to be­come an in­spi­ra­tion, along with be­ing a fit­ness trainer and en­trepreneur. Want to have some fun? Read our re­view of The Sassy Spoon, a re­mark­able eatery in the leafy Kore­gaon Park. Or read our story on the city’s nightlife scene that has picked up. We have done a quick tour of Pune’s top bars and clubs to head to for a party. Meet Anuradha Sawhney, for­mer PETA In­dia head, who is now on a mis­sion to pro­mote ve­g­an­ism amongst Punekars with her ve­gan prod­ucts. She speaks of her foray into this rather off­beat food choice and push­ing it for­ward. Or hear what Punekars have to say about the re­cent govern­ment de­ci­sion to build govern­ment of­fi­cer’s quar­ters at the rather frag­ile and vi­tal Em­press Botan­i­cal Gar­den. The reg­u­lar col­umns are ever present to suit your read­ing mood. All in all, the is­sue has some­thing for every­one to en­joy. Beat­ing the May heat is just a copy away, we say!
