If you haven’t been able to get back to visiting art galleries in the city yet, then there are a lot of exhibitions currently taking place in the city at different venues. This week, we delved into art after a while, and spoke to French artist Maya Burman, whose artworks ‘Games of Life’ are currently being showcased by Art Alive Gallery at The Quorum Mumbai. The works are an expression of her time spent in a commune in France during the last two years of the Covid-19 pandemic.  
We also focus on the importance of exercise and the role it plays in fitness and strengthening one’s immunity in the process. At a time when most people spend more time at their desks because of their jobs and run with tight schedules, adopting some habits can actually help them stay fit. We also focus on how despite the vape ban in the country, the use of vapes is a common sight around us. Experts delve into how the ban does not really contribute to tobacco harm reduction.  
If you are always on the lookout for recipes, then its time to look inside your fridge. We dive into how one can make use of their leftover food, which they otherwise considering throwing out, to make unique and delicious dishes. Chefs not only share tips but also recipes.

With fashion choices always evolving and people hopping on to the latest trends, grunge fashion is back, especially because of the ease and comfort it brings along with it, and the fact that it is pocket-friendly too makes it ideal. Experts shed light on how to get the look right with the timeless trend.

Last but not the least, we travel to Mahim this week to speak to Dhiraj Visariya, who has been manning his bookshop for about 30 years, after his father first started it. Almost three decades later, he wants to continue the business and encourage more people to read books by pricing them cheap.
