“Love yourself. Enough to take the actions required for your happiness. Enough to cut yourself loose from the drama-filled past. Enough to set a high standard for relationships. Enough to feed your mind and body in a healthy manner. Enough to forgive yourself. Enough to move on.” — Steve Maraboli, behavioural scientist
is the contemporary buzzword – whether we’re discussing scrumptious palate pleasers, winsome widgets or exciting love interests… In keeping with this glocal mindset, we decided to dedicate our Inde
pendence Day Special to glocal women politicians. They’re a breed of politicos who add substance, spice ‘n’ style to the international political field. 10 such brave hearts – from Croatia to New Zealand to Israel and beyond – have made it to our Independence Day Special. Their moves, their motivating ways, their magic… get to know these women who’re on a mission; out to make a statement and a difference. One politician who’s been monopolizing the glocal spotlight is Imran Khan, Pakistan’s newly elected Prime Minister… Rewind Savvy brings you an exclusive interview he gave actress-activist Shabana Azmi for ‘SAVVY’ in August 1984. Despite it being three decades and counting, the interaction is fresh as dew and fiery as the Carolina Reaper chilli. Women, marriage, cricket, films, India… Shabana Azmi shoots from the lip and Imran Khan – sometimes mischievously, sometimes seriously – shoots right back! It’s an infotaining insight into the man of the moment. It’s been 34 years since this interview… obviously life has unfolded and Imran Khan has evolved. Rewind Update traces his trajectory – the good, bad and the ugly; the lows and highs, the weak and the winning moments. And it underscores one truth about the man – whether he’s the cornered tiger or not, he always roars with vigour ‘n’ flamboyance! Roaring her way onto the cover of ‘SAVVY’ is Aartii Naagpal – actress-cum-enthusiastic mum. The lady’s I Believe – a shocking story of strife ‘n’ strength – will leave you shaken. Read it to know how anguished Aartii struggled for years to finally move from browbeaten submission to steely resolve. I truly believe self-respect is the greatest attribute to possess. When we don’t have it, we degenerate distressingly. If living with dignity and delight is our goal, we have to cultivate self-respect. And if we haven’t so far, let’s begin now.
