Hot off the shelf

A new season calls for a brand new you. From watches to handsets to clothes, and even make-up, transform yourself with the hottest buys of the month.

  • Kitchen confidential Chef Morimoto’s landmark restaurant Wasabi will soon complete a year in New Delhi. We go behind the scenes to see what makes this temple of gastronomy tick.

  • New restaurants in metros The hottest new restaurants in the metros.
  • Sex on the beach Once upon a time, two very evocative words came together to form the ultimate licentious cocktail.

  • Jesse Randhawa 30s Raised in Delhi, Jesse moved to Mumbai a decade ago to become a ramp model and actress (she appeared in Anurag Kashyap’s Gulaal). She’s now dating Sandip Soparrkar, her dance teacher, and is a fan of pre-marital sex.

  • Escape the heat There’s only one way to survive summer in the metros and that’s to get the hell out. Run for the hills! Where the air is clean and the breeze is crisp and the snow crunches underfoot. Over the next few pages, we show you where to go, where to stay and what to do when you get there. From the spectacular Himalayan states of India to farther jaunts like Bhutan, Sweden and even South Africa. It’s time to get out of town!

  • Getting a head To win requires breaking out of that comfort zone and pushing oneself to be the very best one can be. It really is, as the cliché goes, all in the head.
  • The marathon man India’s original pin-up boy, Milind Soman, tells us how he keeps fit and runs marathons at the age of 44.

  • The books that shaped my life Every issue we ask a prominent businessman about the books that made them the people they are today. This month: Sudip Bandyopadhyay, CEO, Reliance Money.

  • Calender, May 2009 What’s new and what’s happening this month.

  • High rollers The Rolls Royce 200EX may be an experimental model, but it points the way for the much-awaited RR4 next year.

  • Global cool We talk to John Hooks, Giorgio Armani’s #2, about luxury, India’s commonality with Italy, and how he’s not really a stylish person at all. (And even if he was, he would never admit it.)

  • Unified entertainment Why carry two devices when one does the job just fine? That’s the logic of Sony Ericsson’s Walkman and Nokia’s XpressMusic phones.

  • Speak, memory Waltz with Bashir is a brilliant investigation into the nature of guilt and memory.

  • Letter from the Editor Namaste Dear Readers! Hot isn’t it? It seems that spring has walked out on us, without so much as a goodbye, and now summer is glowering down on our precious metros, making them sweatier, stickier and generally less bearable.

  • Fish eats man A treatment for skin conditions has evolved into a ticklish pedicure that leaves your skin looking and feeling like new.

  • Brute luxury We associate Mercedes-Benz with big, luxury cars, but the ML320 CDI breaks that image with its diesel engine and serious off-road gear.

  • Bordeaux meets China Does the arrival of Lafite Rothschild in China herald a turnaround in a country where the most popular brand, called Great Wall, is reminiscent of rocket fuel?
