Imagine being able to celebrate Navratri after two years of the Covid-19 pandemic. The festivities aren’t only limited to food but also fashion, home décor and dance. Since many people fast during this time, we asked city chefs how people can enjoy good food even if they have to exclude the ingredients. They shared recipes using sabudana, the classic food eaten while fasting, along with others including sama rice and makhana.   
 
If you say Navratri is about fasting and feasting, then it is as much about fashion, especially because the trends keep on evolving. With garba nights returning after two years, men and women will want to look their best during this time of the year, fashion experts shared tips on how one can ace the look for this season. However, fashion is incomplete without some good makeup at least during the festive season, so there are also some ways beginners can go about it without any fuss.  
 
As many people turned their fashion game up a notch, home décor wasn’t far behind because many have decorated their house to get into the festive spirit. Mumbai interior designers even shared the ideals ways to decorate one’s house without having to spend too much. This week also saw us focus on World Heart Day for health and fitness. At a time when many Indian celebrities and people have died from heart attacks, doctors remind us why it is important to take heart health seriously.  
 
K-pop band BTS among others has had a huge influence on Indians in the last few years, so its no surprise when we find that there are K-pop instructors who are in demand, as people in the city want to learn how to groove to the tunes of Korean music too. Speaking about dance and music, we also spoke to Farhad Wadia, founder of one of India’s oldest rock festivals in Mumbai called Independence Rock or I-Rock more fondly by Mumbaikars who love rock music.  
 
Here is the full list of features:
