The Heritage Issue

October 2023

As we reflect on the success of the recent G20 Summit in India, we are filled with pride for our country’s rich heritage and celebrate the dedicated organisers and volunteers who made the event a triumph. The theme, ‘One Earth, One Family, One Future’, draws from the ancient wisdom of the Maha Upanishad, reminding us to stay grounded in our roots as we move forward.

This Heritage Issue is all about that—it celebrates our collective roots and the cultural richness of India and nations around the world. Come, explore historical narratives both within India and beyond. Within these pages, you’ll find stories that transcend time and place. Each article is a window into a world where heritage and culture are not just remembered but also lived.

We explore the heritage circuit of Madhya Pradesh and curate a list of India’s finest heritage walks. Journey with us to Philadelphia, the birthplace of American independence, and to Oxford City, where history is a constant companion. Discover the magnificence of Vienna and the essence of India’s heritage—beyond the Taj—in Agra.

But this issue is more than just travel. It’s about historically-significant restaurants, iconic heritage fashion pieces, and global events to ignite your sense of adventure. Join the journey, as Air India scales new heights while staying rooted in its heritage.

Also featured between the covers are glimpses of Air India’s rich history and progress on its ongoing transformation journey.
