A Drink Of The Good Stuff

It’s that the 29-year-old ballerina is 72-year-old veteran rockstar Mick Jagger’s latest girlfriend. The couple are expecting a child—Jagger’s eighth. Well done, man! You are an inspiration.
  • In Jaipur Palace was held the circuitous, ritual-heavy (‘col­­o­­ur­ful’) coming-of-age celebrations of the titular maharaja, Pad­manabh Singh, a keen polo player and a student in England.
