The LBBD HQ is working around the clock to curate features and stories from awesome people around town, and to bring to the forefront projects that Delhiwaalas are pioneering – whether it’s in art and culture, food, lifestyle, or pretty much anything else! Of all our features through October, there are some that have stood out, and been appreciated by the LBBD crew and our readers at large. Here’s what made it to the top of the editorial list this month.

1. Ziro’s Heroes | Two Delhi Boys, One Chronicler, at Ziro Music Festival

Ziro

Get set to get transported to Ziro; bringing you two of the most vivid accounts of the Ziro Music Festival you’ll ever come across – the first will have you in splits and also seriously questioning what these guys were on, and the second one speaks for itself by virtue of the brilliant photography.

 

2. The Casa Diaries | Varrun Motihar

Casa Diaries

His house is the perfect antithesis to the concrete and commotion that Gurgaon looks like from the condo’s 16th floor window. Keeping it simple, cutting the lard and dismissing an endless collection of things, is Varrun Motihar’s breathtaking condo in Gurgaon.

 

3. Explore Delhi | The Ramlila in Delhi 6

Ramlila

Ramlila was the first event we organised, and while setting the ball rolling for all the others, it’s also become something of an LBBD staple. There’s just something about experiencing Dusshera first hand, in the heart of where it originated, and we can hardly wait for next year!

 

4. Meet M D Yadav

Meet Mr. Yadav

He’s the Happiest Man in Delhi, as LBBD’s Suchita puts it, and meeting him was one of the most refreshing things we’ve done in a while. He has the most welcoming smile, and we could all definitely learn a thing or two from this enigmatic man.
