As the weather warms and we gear up for Spring, there’s a buzz of excitement in the air. It’s exhilarating to welcome in a new season and all the potential possibilities on offer, but this year seems extra special. The annual Spring of Culture festival 2015, is bigger and better than ever before. Packed with variety and a plethora of famous faces, there’s plenty to look forward to. From the spectacular Bharati show (cover image), to performances from international pop sensations John Legend and Joss Stone, this year’s event is sure to become truly memorable. Featured in this edition, HE Dr Hassan Fakhro, former Minister of Industry & Commerce, talks to us about his illustrious career as well as his continuing commitment to service in Bahrain. We also chat with the Kingdom’s Bangladesh Ambassador, HE Mominur Rahman, about his first diplomatic posting and his hopes for his fellow countrymen’s improved welfare during his posting here. Abdulla Adel Fakhro, director of the Fakhro Group of companies, talks to BTM about how he started in business and McDonald’s Bahrain’s plans for the future. In the latest Backseat Chat, Bahrain International Circuit’s (BIC) commercial director, Sherif Al Mahdy, reveals the facility’s plans for the 2015 Gulf Air Bahrain Grand Prix. Our motoring section includes the latest news from the island’s automotive giants. This month, Land Rover, in collaboration with the BIC, reveals its revamped off-roading facility designed to test and develop driving skills. Infiniti’s flagship SUV, the QX80 and the 2015 Renault Captur were launched by Y.K. Almoayyed & Sons and we spill the beans on the newest Rolls Royce. We also have features on air-conditioning, buffets and home furnishings in another packed edition that demonstrates the great way of life the Kingdom has to offer. As spring is truly upon us this month, we hope you will enjoy the festival-like atmosphere in the glorious days ahead — Bahrain’s “Great Way of Life”
