May’s cover of @bazaarindia has been a long time in the making. Over a year ago, deputy editor @esha.mahajan had announced that @jameelajamilofficial was the quintessential Bazaar woman. She insisted we follow her on Instagram, she profiled her in the magazine, and even persuaded her to write for the January-February 2019 issue of Bazaar. Very soon, one of the reasons I checked social media was to see how this incredibly smart, hugely articulate, young activist engages with the world.
This month, in an exciting first, Bazaar shot the cover and the cover story on the soon to be released OnePlus 7 Pro. Our diktat from @jameelajamilofficial was “no digital retouching, no airbrushing.” We present to you images through the lens of honesty. Sans digital distortion.
The Body Issue is a celebration of a world that women have been creating for themselves. A safe space, without judgment. Or man-made rules. Strung together with the line, “Because the best love stories begin with you”, we asked a few extraordinary people to write a letter to themselves. Each piece, every word, should be a daily prayer.
In an office largely filled with women who have a lot to say, the biggest perk of my job lies in the listening. But nothing beats days everyone speaks at the same time. It’s as if they have so much to say that they cannot contain themselves. That, to me, is the sound of freedom.
