oon does not matter. Stars do. That’s why little Tamana, living alone with her parents, is looking for the ones twinkling on a nice short top. After donning it on Karva Chauth over boot-cut trousers with twin tantalizing slits on either sides, she plans to zip up and down the hearts of city guys in her jaunty jalopy.

Is strictly against the “business of wedding for earning social security”.

Dark for dark, light for light. Use a wet sponge to blend evenly around your temples and jawbone for a barely-there look.

Cutting their way through the jostling crowd of unshaved aliens, they reach the coffee shop, unfazed.
