On the heels of the quick and intimate nuptials of Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor, Mid-day asked fashion and makeup experts what it takes to put together a subtle wedding look. As the duo wed in their balcony, we also asked interior designers how to make a deck area look occasion-worthy. Given the tightening grip of summer, we sourced exciting recipes featuring seasonal produce — specifically, raw mangoes.


The week saw two special events: April 20 or World Weed Day and April 23 i.e. World Book Day. For the former, we dove into the growing use of hemp-based products that are thought to be therapeutic and sustainable to bring you a comprehensive feature on the hemp lifestyle. Our reading list of Dr BR Ambedkar’s essential works is one everyone must bookmark. In our ‘Shelf Life’ series, which chronicles the people and places striving to preserve Mumbai’s reading culture, we visited an independently curated Bandra bookstore.
