Our latest Music issue is about Songs of Hope in a world marred by bloodshed, racism and political play. While news footage shows you the worst from the Syrian refugee crisis to a burning Kashmir, we bring you the voices that resonate with love, strength and positivism in the midst of this gloom...   

Anoushka Shankar
The Lady of the Sitar shares in our cover story how heartbreak and despair compelled her to create a Land of Gold where Syrian refugees would find again life, love and hope.

Srinagar Stories
A powerful and personal visual narrative shot in Srinagar brings you never-before-heard Voices from the Valley. Young artists, poets, writers and entrepreneurs from Kashmir rise strong in their dreams despite all unrest and bare their hearts to us.

Music with Meaning
In our Listed section, we trace the story of how Imphal Talkies, JJI Exile Brothers and Delhi Sultanate came to create music of cause, power and rebellion.

British-Pakistani actor and rapper Riz Ahmed talks about taking on racism through his latest album Englistan, and being part of Jason Bourne and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

The Common Man
The king of realists on the Indian screen, Irrfan Khan takes us through the journey of playing Madaari and never believing in plans.

Poetry in pictures
Award-winning filmmaker, documentarian and photographer Sarah Singh tells us about her surrealist work of film art, A Million Rivers, and walks us through her creative backstage. 

The Two Sides of Meghalaya
While our Travelogue takes you adrift the unmatched monsoon in the cloud state, Life's Realities brings you the other side — the coal mining story as explored by an award-winning documentary, Fireflies in the Abyss.

And that's just a little glimpse! The Music issue is now on stands. Subscribe or pick your copy now!
