EDITOR IN CHIEF

s usual, I’m late to the party again. After a year of rave reviews, it wasn’t until last month that I had the opportunity to finally see The Hundred-Foot Journey; and within just a few minutes, I found myself transported to a place of mystique and revelry. Of course as soon as the lead character was introduced holding the highly coveted sea urchin in a meditative manner, I immediately knew this was a film that would linger in my system for a prolonged period of time.

Armed with all the emotions obtained from it, the GEV editors and I slowly plotted to produce something that celebrated all things INDIA. So, from a flourishing designer who’s making waves in Hollywood with his sophisticated flair and talent for intricate beadwork couture to a husband-and-wife-tandem known for their esteemed Indian restaurants in the Bay Area, our current issue has all the elements and flavors of this rich and glorious culture. And you can call it serendipity but perhaps it was this very reason why out-of-the blue, we just randomly met Myra and Michael. This spellbinding couple were guests at one of the winemaker dinners we were attending. Call it kismet but they couldn’t help but approach and join our table and we couldn’t help but feast and break bread with them. Coincidentally they were a few days away from leaving for India and somewhere along the conversation, they offered that it would be an honor to share their pilgrimage to the city of lights with our readers. Was it the universe? Karma? The great Indian gods providing a path for us? When it comes to matter of the divine your guess is as good as mine. This has proven to be the biggest undertaking of GEV yet, and with every new issue we strive to elevate our magazine to a level beyond that of its predecessor. This means we’ll really have our work cut out for us with Issue 18, but for now, we hope you take as much pleasure immersing yourself in Issue 17 as we have had in creating it for you.
