Highlights of Reader’s Digest October 2017, issue:
Awash in a festive mood as neighbourhoods dress up for the celebrations, the first rumble of drums, the smell of new clothes, the lights herald the season of good cheer.
Ring in the season with ‘My Forever Diwali’, a beautiful portrait of a long-ago Deepavali that will touch your heart and set you off on a journey of memories and emotions. Get into the puja mood with ‘Pandal Food’, a festive fiction with a rather unusual twist. The tale of the ‘haunted’ club is an eerie real-life narrative by a well-known rationalist. If you grew up on Bram Stoker, ‘Travelling in Dracula Country’ is a must read, putting to rest all the questions about the count’s hometown. Serendipitously, it’s Halloween this month, a festival involving spirits and ghosts.
The cover story—we are calling the package the Genius Issue—is a vault of treasure combining science, language and life-skills. Turns out books—fiction, non-fiction, it doesn’t matter—are a super food for the brain! That’s one more reason to pick up your copy of the October issue now.
Have a great Diwali!
Highlights of Reader’s Digest February 2016, issue: Happiness Begins with Humour Of Love and Money It’s February and while the world celebrates love (we do too), we also know it’s still the beginning of the year and we’re all still hanging on to our resolutions. It’s the best time to make a sound financial plan, rather than scrambling at the end of the year to put together investments. But since there’s no one-size-fits-all solution, our cover story lays down the basics and helps you build on these. But because money can’t buy everything, we have a heart-warming tale of what our loved ones really want from us. In our other special stories: Shafqat Amanat Ali on what he’d do if he ruled the world, an interview with Michael Caine, how to get lucky, and whether the new black money law really will work. Plus, a look into The Making of a Jihadist and why a healthy young man did what he did. There’s also something for us to sleep over: a special report on sleep, how we, in India, are not getting enough of it, and how we can get our full eight hours. Travel down Australia’s Great Ocean Road, and round it off with a story of a film-maker who has lived well beyond his years, with the support and love of his family. Yes, love does make the world go around. So don’t miss our Valentine’s Day special: To Fall in Love with Anyone, Do This...
