Green tea is a type of tea which is made from Camellia Sinensis leaves which have not undergone the process of oxidation. Green tea is native to China and India and has spread to many different countries. It is the most popular tea in China. Chinese teas are said to have an earthy taste as compared to Japanese teas. Depending on the green tea a person desires, it is processed in many ways.
“If you’re cold, this tea will warm you.
If you’re too heated, it will cool you.
If you’re depressed, it will cheer you.
If you’re excited, it will calm you”.
Green tea was used in many of the traditional Chinese & Indian medicine for various purposes like digestion, healing wounds, regulate body temperature, improve mental and heart functioning.
Some of the possible health benefits of Green tea are as follows :-
“Drink green tea to increase your metabolism and keep sugars away from turning into stored fats. Now this truly justifies the benefits of green tea.”
Editors in stark contrast to bosses are surreal. In my world they appeared as an umbrella that protects, the sun that nurtures, and the moon that brings order to the ecology of a workplace. Editors marked my transition from home to the professional world. The seeds of my connect with the editors were sown by my father, an ardent follower of “With Malice Towards One and All”. Such was his affection for the column that none of our Sunday morning breakfasts concluded without dissecting Khushwat Singh’s Malice. My transition from “Malice” (Khushwant Singh) to “I Muse Therefore I am” (VN Narayanan) was seamless. The larger than life image of an editor that his column created in my mind had a perfect sequel when one of my father’s subordinates facilitated his meeting with Khushwant Singh.
MJ Akbar, the former editor of The Asian Age, Chandan Mitra, the former executive editor of The Hindustan Times and VN Narayanan, the then editor-in-chief of The Hindustan Times and Shekhar Gupta, editor-in-chief Indian Express- each donned the mantle of an editor in their unique ways. I was in awe of VNN, in good books of Chandan, on the same page with MJ and on friendly terms with Shekhar. Over years I discovered none of the editors that I followed ever gave me a reason to disagree- in their columns as well as in their limited interactions with me. They were crystal clear in their instructions, evolutionary in their execution, perfect in their strategies and unparalleled in their understanding of human conditions. The professional choices they made and the human beings that they were – their conduct has been my benchmark for all subsequent bosses I have had.
Each one of them has casted a die in my mind. Their personality, stand on the matters of national and international concerns, the choice of words, and the small yet inerasable one-on-one gestures stay etched in my mind. Chandan, even after moving out of The Hindustan Times, was appreciative of the stories we did for The Hindustan Times. Mr. Narayanan, one of the most humble editors I met in my career spanning quarter of a century, symbolized serendipity. MJ was instrumental in giving me the lens to view abundance. Shekhar symbolized a safe space in a foreign land. There have been other editors as well, but none that matched the persona of these four and none that were as dynamic a space for my creative expressions.
Editors are different from bosses, who are the mentors. Pankaj Vohra (HT), Prabha Chandran (HT), N Raghuraman (Dainik Bhaskar), Kalpesh Yagnik (Dainik Bhaskar), Jayanth Kodkani (TOI) – each one of them enriched my world in multiple ways and I hope I manage to pass on their nods of encouragement and approval to my subordinates in the same measure.
Tailpiece acquired a special place in my reading thanks to Vinod Mehta, the distinguished editor of Outlook. Known for his much acclaimed memoir Lucknow Boy, this doyen of the media industry gave a rather amusing interpretation to the term “editor”. Off and on Vinod would conclude his column “Delhi Diary” by informing his readers about the next move of the “Editor”! Besides being the most written about pet of the capital city, “Editor” happened to be Vinod’s dog. Editor, Vinod would claim in his columns, had two pets- the Lucknow Boy and his wife Sumita.
