Flash Sale: A stylish affair

Handloom brand Raw Mango is organizing a mela (fair), curating other contemporary brands such as Itoh, NorBlack NorWhite, and Pahadi Local, which are inspired by Indian design. The brand’s founder, designer Sanjay Garg, says, “Design for me has always encompassed various other things across many disciplines, which explore the different regions, cultures, food and music of India—which is essentially what a mela is all about. We are excited to come together with so many like-minded brands!"—SL

Raw Mango’s Mela will be held on 16-17 November at Raw Mango’s store in Lodhi Colony Market, Delhi

On a Platter: Food that tickles your taste buds

Embark on a culinary trail of indigenous food at the Isuzu X Food Festival in Mumbai, taking your pick of 24 cuisines from 17 states. There will be unique dishes, like a snail dish from West Bengal and a silk worm pupae with roselle leaves from Assam. “The deeper we delved into cooking techniques and ingredients, more variations emerged. For instance, in Kerala, a slight change in the distillation process of toddy or tweaking an ingredient of a simple konju varutharaccha curry will yield something entirely different. We attempt to showcase the astonishing depth of Indian and, eventually, global cuisine," says the organizer, Martin da Costa, CEO of event management company 70 EMG. The event is curated, among others, by television personality Kunal Vijayakar and actor-turned-cookbook-author Tara Deshpande.—JB
