Editor's Blog March 2013

It is that heady month when the mind turns to thoughts of love and the heart goes all mushy. Spring is in the air, breathe in the aroma of flowers, let the acid colours transport you into a happy kaleidoscope… Dance, sing, meditate…basant is upon us. All the craziness of the season crescendos at the glorious festival of Holi—traditionally a good place to let all your inhibitions go; and while you’re about it, to score!

March also sees us celebrating Women’s Day. Quite appropriate! Women, like spring, personify rejuvenation, growth, happiness, colour… Shakti is the feminine force that gives life to Mother Earth—it is propagating, nurturing and binding. Hi! Blitz celebrates the spirit of the month with an astonishing line up of women who have broken the glass ceilings in their professions. Individualistic, intelligent and intuitive, they have achieved their life’s goals with unwavering passion and that ultimately is what defines our lives. It is the passion you bring into anything you do. Let us heed their stories and admire their fruition.

Jat hottie Randeep Hooda knows his time has come. As one of the busiest stars in Bollywood, he is a far cry from being the arm candy he once was. A list of exciting roles and a dire lack of young, eligible males in the movie industry has seen him catapult into the pin-up zone of Bollywood. Hi! Blitz goes cantering with him and his own mares at Mumbai’s Mahalaxmi Race Course. If he treats his women as tenderly as he treats his horses, ladies would be advised to grab him!

It has been quite a month for wheels. The India Bike Week in Goa had 800 Harley-Davidsons in attendance (good heavens!). Filmmaker and bike fiend Sanjay Gupta dropped a movie shoot just to be a part of it. Do catch his firsthand report here. The Cartier ‘Travel with Style’ Concours d’Elégance 2013 gathered together the best of India’s vintage cars and bikes from palaces and aristocratic homes. Feast your eyes on these beauties!

Enjoy the spring and the magazine.
