Oh! Summer Wine

Shakespeare’s favorite month would seem to be April even though the poet T.S. Eliot called April the cruelest month. It seemed to be true this Hot April, with temperatures soaring beyond 45 in the plains of northern India. Global temperatures also shot up with America dropping the Mother of all bombs on Afghanistan. But maybe May holds out some hope.

We bring you a narrative of hope for thousands of children whose futures are being rewritten under the Reliance Foundation’s Education for All project.

Then, of course, the usual back of the magazine fun with travel across Eastern Europe, a Wedding Special and some unusual stories of women from the badlands of Uttar Pradesh. Keep reading DW and stay cool. Cheers!
