Sanjiv Bhattacharya experiences the magic.
  • The Capella constellation No weekend destination story would be complete without Goa, but there’s more to Goa than just beach. Deepti Datt heads into the forests to a super-exclusive but homely B&B favoured by movie stars and celebrities. Just watch out for the monkeys.

  • Knit picks If it’s winter, then it has to be knitwear. Six great styles
  • Paint It black There’s something inherently powerful about the colour of the season.

  • Baroque ’n’ roll Complex beats? Multi-part harmonies? Lush strings? Unforgettable melodies? Sounds like Baroque Pop!
  • The Jeev show Short dresses, long-tanned legs, high heels and Prada shades mingled with crusty footwear, dhotis, kurtas and turbans. The smooth and sassy with the rough and earthy.

  • Spring loaded Downturn, what downturn? Sanjay Kapoor, the managing director of genesis luxury, is in high spirits. Just make sure there’s a gym nearby.
  • Metro watch The restaurants you need to know about. This month, we do Japanese in Gurgaon, chicken and mash in Bandra and royal kebabs in Bangalore. Tuck in!
  • Hops in house When India’s first ever microbrewery opened up for business, Bibek Bhattacharya was first in line.
  • Don’t forget your liver Try not to be swayed by medical reports. Wine’s a great drink to have, especially with a woman. You’ll not make an ass of yourself as you might after a whisky too many.
