Editor’s Note September 2017
It’s the first time that I am writing this piece from 10,000 feet above the ground level en route Berlin where Internationale Funkausstellung (IFA)– the biggest tech exhibition of the world is set to begin. Also, what struck me while looking at the clouds from the window pane was a reality check that we’re just 4 months away from 2018… Isn’t it too quick?! 2017 hasn’t sunk in for me yet! Organising and executing events and consistently releasing issues every month, it’s finally the time to tech up your fashion quotient as Tech Fashion Tour 3.0 hits the ground on 20th September! Exhibit pad is buzzing with the preps and this time I promise we’re getting bigger.
Keeping that in mind, this automatically transforms the September issue into a Tech and Fashion special with articles exploring this very intriguing relationship. I also write this at the moment when Mumbai had come to a standstill. While it rained in Mumbai, I took off wondering if I would have to swim to the airport before I could actually fly. I think if you live in Mumbai, it’s time to buy a hovercraft!
A gist of what happened in the past few weeks – our country took a huge leap forward by banning the age-old ritual of ‘Triple Talaq’, thus giving back the dignity of Muslim women. Not only this, the country also upheld the common public’s right to privacy, and finally sentenced the most astonishing MISTAKE of GOD (MSG) – I mean the Producer, Director, Actor of MESSENGER of God (MSG) and most importantly the Rapist – Dera Chief for a 20-year imprisonment. This means by the time he will be out of the jail, he would be 70 plus with his sword hanging out of his zip.
By habitude, now is when I talk about our cover star Taapsee Pannu and honestly, who better than the “Tan Tana Tan Techy” girl herself making eyes wide with her glamorous stance in Judwaa 2. This is a kind of role portrayal that she is doing after a very long time. It wasn’t long ago when we did a shoot with her for our March issue. She was gorgeous then and she is gorgeous now, she was techy then and is techy now. Much hasn’t changed…or has it? She is armed with an engineering degree in computer science. A beauty with brain, she can also hold a debate on Artificial Intelligence with blokes from Google and stand tall on it just like our dinner table conversation.
And what more? Because I can’t Google more to fill this page thanks to the airplane, I will have to stop here since the pilot just announced our landing at the Berlin airport.
Until next month, stay fashionable, stay techy and make some noise in life!
