Dear IAnDian,

We are currently enjoying a phase, where technology and its positives have spearheaded us into a futuristic aura that is at once appealing and adaptable. But with its several plusses come the little niggers of a life well spent before the onslaught of all things technology. An era that most of the millennials are not even aware of. The very fact that they are kickass about the remix of an old melody, are intrigued by a traditional and detailed process, or are happy to adopt a tried-and-tested formulaic solution... shows that the new generation needs to be introduced to choice segments of our past, exactly like we would refill a new bottle with aged wine!

Look a little closely at our stories this week - a palatial home that caters to different personalities yet finds its balance via the overall design approach. A small café in Shanghai that uses the juxtaposition of opposites to carve out a niche space for a product (coffee) and an audience! A made-to-measure store that ups the oomph quotient of a bespoke, traditional craft. And our cover story that features a book store cum library cum café cum event space speaks of a cultural hangout that seems the need of the hour to bring the human touch back into the hands-on, jet-setting world!

A little introspection goes a long way! Enjoy the issue.

Warm regards,
Savitha Hira
