Why I Love Outlook

I do believe that Pranab Mukherjee’s life should be treated with the same focus and speculation as Katrina Kaif’s.

What do you love and hate about us? I love the combination of arrogance and humility in this request. It makes me feel like Raghu from Roadies: print edition. The happy assumption—and sad truth—a print magazine still has relevance in a digital age where online lists like Top 28 Reasons Why Your Brain Is Important get more traction than a magazine article on Jesus’s second coming. That said, I’ve always enjoyed a lot of Outlook’s pieces. I especially like Deep Throat—which is basically a Page 3 for intel­ligent people. I’m not being sardonic but I do believe that Pranab Mukherjee’s life should be treated with the same focus and speculation as Katrina Kaif’s. It’s high time we heard rumours of his trip to Greece with Ranbir! There have been accusations that Outlook is anti-Modi. But, in my engagement with the magazine—I’ve seen only two pieces against Lalit. And, in any case—I think it’s a fun game to play for readers to ascertain which magazine/newspaper is anti-Modi, pro-Modi, anti-AAP, pro-AAP, anti-Congress or stupid. We should be considerably more open about welcoming different political points of view from our media. For example, I’m pro-Sunny Leone and I never let that interfere with my comedic opinions. Except when my wife is not looking.
