In this issue
Tracking the undercurrents of change beyond the world of cinema led us specifically to the food and fashion industries, literature, and the arena of mental health. For our November-December issue, we picked five other people, along with our cover star Neena Gupta, who have made huge strides in refocusing the lens through which their chosen professions are typically viewed. This issue is packed with people and stories that will encourage you to reflect anew. We felt a frisson of excitement putting it all together; it’s time for a fresh and recalibrated outlook, and Verve is ready to lead the way.
It’s the coming of age of an unconventional artiste, whose life has been laced with passion, scandal and heartbreak. As she stuns audiences with her latest release Badhaai Ho, she takes Megha Shah through the defining moments of her life
My Friend, Neena
She has danced with her on stage, performed with her in plays and shared many of her life-changing moments, both professional and personal. And now, as her compatriot continues to earn accolades for a game-changing role in a record-smashing film, author and editor Sathya Saran rewinds to some of her friend’s most meaningful turning points
The maverick restaurateur reflects to Shirin Mehta about curating menus, foraging for ingredients, seasonality, sustainability and zero waste. All at that restaurant, Masque.
Nikhil D. And Smita Lasrado
The flip side of beauty is not necessarily ugly. The duo — cofounders of model agency Feat. Artists — tells Rushmika Banerjee about giving a voice to the brewing subculture of individuals who believe that looking good is more than skin-deep, even in the fashion industry
She ties together multiple bodies of work as a poet, curator, DJ and psychologist. Shreya Ila Anasuya meets one of the smart, savvy and sensitive new faces of mental health and LGBTQIA+ rights in India
Her works hold the reader captive with their sinewy, multilayered storylines. The country’s first female graphic novelist constructs and deconstructs narratives with a view to tell stories that are progressive, socially relevant and epic in scale, finds Ranjabati Das
Through Their Looking Glass
Anshika Khullar, the 24-year-old England-based illustrator, talks to Verve about the process of creating an inclusive imagery of the LGBTQIA+ community and pushing for adequate representation for South Asian queer groups on a global scale
A Matter Of Perspective
Madhu Jain reminisces about the books that she grew up with and discovers that the passage of time sometimes changes their understanding and impact….
#Metoo India: The Road Ahead
A special feature exploring some of the ongoing conversations around the movement in India.
It Takes Two
Dancing might be poetry in motion, but there’s a science to it. Pole dancer Aarifa Bhinderwala’s agile spins and inversions defy gravity, and Odissi dancer Ranjana Dave elevates simple physics to keep her lower body firmly grounded while her torso is fluid and snake-like. Sadaf Shaikh spends an afternoon watching how the two women’s mutual intuition for movement results in a beautiful crossing over of forms and synchronicity
