Dear IAnDian,

We have great news for you. You can now receive this IAnD issue via WhatsApp also!

Currently in test-mode, some of you may have already received last week’s issue on WhatsApp. Do let us know your experience and how you’d like us to make it better. For those who’d like to avail of this convenience, do send us a WhatsApp shout on +91 9820461587 and we’ll be happy to loop you in.

The talk of the town - the transformation of the iconic Bombay House – our cover story, I must say how satisfying it is to meet a creative whose work goes beyond the ramified constructs of the accepted. Her vision, her sensitivity and the very nature of her interaction with what we consider as mere brick-and-mortar, makes one want to relook at things with her vision. This is none other than Ar. Brinda Somaya, who has once again brought history to life with her restoration of the 94-year-old colonial structure.

Our other offerings this week fill in a mixed bag, where we bring you ideas for home interiors and d├ęcor via a penthouse in Mumbai and a duplex apartment in Bangalore. Speaking of technology, we have something for all Harry Potter fans – the new magic wand – the Kano Coding Kit, a know-how game for all age groups that makes you believe in dreams all over again! And then we have two distinct curvatures – one that shapes the roof of a hospitality jaunt in the forests of China and the other, an experiment with ultra-thin aluminium as an arresting entrance canopy in Texas.

Lots to soak in. Enjoy!

Savitha Hira
