Jeejeebhoy’s Bombay

The scion of a leading business family was among the first historians to document the city’s hidden stories, and was deeply affected by the loss of its heritage. If one were to think of a household name in Bombay that has endured for over the last two centuries, it would most probably be Jeejeebhoy. Hospitals, schools, colleges, dharamshalas, and whatnot: the Jeejeebhoy name is ubiquitous in Bombay. This name is associated with Sir Jamsetjee Jejeebhoy (1783–1859), famous philanthropist and opium...

Jimmy Engineer: “The servant of Pakistan”

Jimmy described his wall paintings depicting Allama Iqbal’s masterpiece Javed Namah as his most difficult work, but also one of his major artistic achievements “I have been sent here,” said an unfamiliar man, in a dark shalwar kameez, as he stood silhouetted in the doorway of my Karachi hotel room. It was late in the evening and he had insisted on seeing me personally and alone, an unnerving demand in 1997, when the filming had just started on my film Jinnah. There was a storm of controversy and...

Help, I've Fallen in Love With a $750 Face Cream and I Can't Give It Up

On a scale from one to Mariah Carey, my fancy meter tracks at a sensible two. I've always preferred to shop for clothes in my roommate's closet (which, in my defense, has incredible steals of free-99) and can count on one hand the amount of times I've splurged on guacamole at Chipotle. In my many years as a beauty editor, I've also learned that "pricey" doesn't always equate to "better" - especially when it comes to skincare. Still, I'd feel like a Charles Ponzi-level liar if I didn't get this o...

Proof That Ryan Gosling Is Still 'Hey, Girl' Hot

It’s difficult to recall the very first time we laid eyes on Ryan Gosling. It's probably because the moment is a distant, buried memory from the mid-’90s when he was a star on Mickey Mouse Club. But for some, the first Gosling experience came years later during his breakout role in The Notebook. Regardless, Gosling is a mainstay — in Hollywood and our hearts.If you’re not on the bandwagon yet — not even after the memes, the dancing, or the pro-Gosling protests – prepare to hitch a ride.

How To Clear Chest Acne, According To Top Dermatologists

While no one welcomes a breakout, seeing a zit crop up after a string of late nights or going to sleep with makeup on makes a certain amount of sense. But developing chest acne from proper adulting — like working out or wearing fitted clothing in the winter (duh!) — feels far from fair. According to Miami-based dermatologist S. Manjula Jegasothy, MD, clinical associate professor of dermatology at the University of Miami, simple things like that can lead to an acne flare-ups on the chest. It doe...
