Oh, the pressures to bring some thought-provoking stories to the reader’s plate. You just cannot deal with mediocrity. And so the struggles of bringing out the best can be just annoying at times. While on the eternal search for the lead story, we managed to feature the very popular author Chetan Bhagat on our cover. He is back in news for his latest book and for getting ‘caught’ in the #MeToo movement. While we tried our best to bring things out, he believes everything is out there on social media for everyone to read. We figure things out and move to his much awaited new book, connecting with the masses, being a marketing genius, government policies and politics and much more. Society is not just about bringing stories or interviews for the readers, it is choosing the right mix one can. Fellow author Mallika Ahluwalia follows with her book Divided by Partition, United by Resilience – which are 21 stories of those who witnessed the country’s darkest history and came out successful. She has also started the world’s only Partition Museum in Amritsar. Acclaimed writer Mita Kapur speaks about writing, influences and Siyahi – her pioneering literary consultancy firm. In an age where writers need big support to get the right deal, Kapur’s efforts are appreciated. What’s Society without some glamour? Just read about Shriya Pilgaonkar, daughter of actors Sachin and Supriya Pilgaonkar. She is doing all things right, from acting opposite King Khan in Fan and now acting in a period film Beecham House directed by Gurinder Chadha. Not bad! Young actress Ayesha Kapur too is making waves with her new blog on fashion, lifestyle and more. This powerhouse from Black also runs her own successful fashion brand Ayesha Accessories. She is going places. For Kapil Dev fans, his sepia interview will revive memories of his struggles during the match-fixing scandal. It just tugs your heart. Art lovers can read the interview of artist Pratiksha Apurv who happens to be spiritual guru Osho’s niece. Her coffee table book is an interesting amalgamation of her paintings and articles on spirituality. Let’s drink to all these stories with the interview of Rohan Rehani and Nitin Vishwas who started Asia’s 1st meadery called Moonshine Meadery. I am sure that our October issue will be a riot for Society readers.
