The Chef with Many Hats: Aditi Dugar
Connecting with Bharti Kher is always an inspiration— her ideologies, her need to set objects free, her observations and her artistic journey are remarkable. We catch up with The People Watcher on her art that was, is and will be. A two-time Academy Award winner, Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy is the first woman film director to win two Oscars by the age of thirty-seven. Her stories are humane and give voice and space to all those that silently, away from the limelight, work every day for a better tomorrow. Writer Amit Chaudhury writes to celebrate the here and now. He shares his relationship with writing and what draws him in a story. An architect by education and profession, photographer Randhir Singh started capturing photographs as it became ‘a way to connect with architecture and an excuse to roam around the city making photographs’. His most recent exhibit at MoMA, The Project of Independence: Architectures of Decolonization in South Asia, 1947 -1985, is an exhibition that focuses on modern architecture built in Bangladesh, India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka.
We also have the talented and uniquely polished, Jim Sarbh, sharing fragments of his life that often goes unnoticed. We get to know him and his interests in art, books and his pet cat Mimi. Designer Gaurav Gupta, lets us in on his varied interests and characteristic traits. Founder of Masque, that was recently awarded the twenty-first spot on Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants, Aditi Dugar is a self-taught chef and tells us what it takes to be an entrepreneur, chef, restaurateur, mother of three young boys and how she thrives on the ‘frenzy and chaos’.
What ties this publication beautifully are two stunning visual stories, one in association with Gucci that celebrates diversity and another with the vision of incredibly artistic designer Arjun Saluja that celebrates freedom and non-conformism.
