Notes from the ed­i­tor

April 2011. Team In­dia won the World Cup in cricket, and ‘Man of the Tour­na­ment’ Yu­vraj Singh was on an ob­vi­ous high. But what many didn’t know was how the all-rounder strug­gled with bad bouts of breath­less­ness while de­liv­er­ing those win­ning shots… Yuvi didn’t let even can­cer come in the way… Once he kissed the Cup, he took on the dreaded ‘C’ word, fought it like the way he played – fear­lessly – and bounced back in the squad! As the player lays bare his life – cricket, can­cer, love ‘n’ more – in our cover story (‘Fit & Fa­mous’), we can’t help but salute him for his in­cred­i­ble dis­plays of sports­man­ship! While a salute to the sun is all that is needed to avert an epi­demic that is en­gulf­ing In­dia, there are other ways too, to tackle the vi­ta­min D de­fi­ciency that has re­port­edly af­fected more than 60% In­di­ans. ‘Health Fo­cus’ tells you all about the silent killer and how it can be nipped in the bud. …Nip pain the first time you feel it. As pain is the fore­most sign of de­gen­er­a­tion in the body. But don’t rush to pop a pill. Turn to ‘Heal Thy­self’ for a de­tailed guide on how yoga can help fight pain and strengthen your body. Go ahead, hit the yoga mat, your body will thank you. …And if you’re stuck for gift ideas, buy one too… Let your loved ones know how much you care about them by giv­ing them the gift of health. In ‘Healthy Life­style’, we have rounded up some unique, up­beat and use­ful gift ideas that are sure to keep your fam­ily and friends health­ier ‘n’ hap­pier! Happy. Hearty. Ro­man­tic… Three words that best de­scribe the rains. En­joy it, the safe way though – our mon­soon sto­ries on steer­ing clear of food con­tam­i­na­tions, skin in­fec­tions and more will help you do just that. While you’re at it, don’t for­get to walk in the rain – it’s cooler, qui­eter, cleaner… And it wa­ters the soul too ☺
