It's our birthday and we can't keep calm

Birthdays are always special, especially when you get to celebrate with those who love and support you relentlessly. So as HT City turns 23 this month, I want to begin by thanking our readers who have made us who we are. Trends may come and go. Trends may make a comeback as in the case of Ben Affleck reappearing in Jennifer Lopez's life. Or trends may continue, as in the case with Shah Rukh-Salman-Aamir-Akshay being the reigning stars in Bollywood. But we got you through it all. We ushered in the new millennium with you, we grew up with you. We continue to lead and not just in the print newspaper you get at your homes, but in our digital footprint as well. A reader wrote to me that toddlers who were born around our inception are now reading HT City. I wrote to them saying that people who were born in '99 are now writing for HT City. Our young team of reporters has kept us evergreen and in sync with the changing world. Thank you for making us your favourite entertainment and lifestyle destination.


The party is on at HT City this entire month with Cheers 23, our special series that tracks how entertainment and lifestyle trends have evolved over the past 23 years. This entire month when you pick a copy of HT City or go to our digital platforms, you will find collectors' curations of alltrends entertainment and lifestyle. Plus, there are exciting contests and fabulous prizes to be won. Rock on!
