Monsoon Special Edition: Busting monsoon myths; trending wearables and home decor; landscaping and the monsoons and much more


“I am dotted silver threads dropped from heaven
By the gods. Nature then takes me, to adorn
Her fields and valleys.
I am beautiful pearls, plucked from the
Crown of Ishtar by the daughter of Dawn
To embellish the gardens.”

Ar. Ajay Suryawanshi recalls these lines from a beautiful poem by Gibran - his ode to the beauty of rain. Ajay throws light on an important aspect of landscape architecture with some invaluable advice on growing and maintaining a garden during the monsoons; a must-read for all the green-fingered.

We bring you our Monsoon Special Edition with a bouquet of information on home decor trends, fashion-forward monsoon beat, brandishing colour to drive away the monsoon blues and some fundamental do’s and don’ts. We also bust some popular myths.

Another highlight of this issue is the special interest story on the Avani-Kumaon community that lives on harvested rainwater for seven months of the year! Way to go!!
