Those who take stock of glamour, ascribing rank and passing judgement, ignore Mandira Bedi at their peril. For as the rest of us moan and groan, throwing sharp glances as the next human sneezes, she has coolly taken herself away to Maldives, to soak in the sun, as if she hadn’t enough of it back home.

But it all comes to this: Mandy in a black bikini, eyes shaded in the same shade, showing us that she, at 48, still can balance herself effortlessly. “The right mix of great food and so much activity,” she titters. It must be gratifying that the activity shows more than the food.
