"Choosing locations, designing interiors, organizing events, creating a line of products with a distinct and identifiable design aesthetic—this kind of layered and multifaceted approach is what distinguishes a concept store. “But that idea of a concept store is not new per se,” Raul Rai admits. “What’s new is how physical platforms are merged with digital platforms. We’re just scratching the surface. Eighty per cent of the people who come here know about Nicobar through digital, social media or word of mouth,” he says. The idea aligns with the buying patterns of customers who browse online, make their choice and then head to a store to look for more, curated along the same lines."

"Since 2013, 14 students from three government schools in Whitefield, #Bengaluru, have been learning the nuances of a card game that has been popular among the defence services and businesspeople— Bridge. Most of them had never played a card game before Bindiya “Mini” Naidoo and her team from the Karnataka State Bridge Association started teaching them the game. Now, they play the game online every night for at least 2 hours and participate in outstation tournaments, camps and workshops.

#ICYMI: We’ve always assessed #Indiancinema with a yardstick of our own, unclear about its standing in the international #film circuit. For our monthly salon #LoungeLounge—where we bring together thought-leaders for a deep dive—we deliberate on India’s current status in #worldcinema and where it needs to go from here.

"Those unable to afford the adventure of flight, or unwilling to tempt Yamdoot, travelled by #train. The great Indian rail #journey was a shared national experience. It was much more than the mere matter of getting from Point A to Point B. It was, like the #KumbhMela, a dip into an ocean of humanity. The 1990s was its last great decade."
