Hands-Free Approach

Can this be a sign of retirement? Now that son Rahul has, at long last, taken over the reins of the Congress, Sonia Gandhi took time off in Goa. Not with flashy hangers-on, but just quiet and dignified, atop a cycle.

The Home Leg At Last

A Milanese wedding out of reach of most Indian photo lenses was followed by Finland’s frosty hush for a honeymoon.
