miyan, badi dulhan
WHEN she may have taken her
first step into kindergarten, he may just have been a tiny bundle,
barely able to roll over in his crib. When she may have graduated to
wearing frilly frocks and fancy ribbons, he may still have been sporting
diapers. When she may have progressed to reading Enid Blytons, he may
just have begun mouthing Baba black sheep or he may not even have
arrived on Planet Earth by then!
Ďthread gardení of Ooty
Rock Garden was being set up, who would have thought that some day it
would become the most famous landmark of Chandigarh known not only in
India but all over the world? A similar miracle has taken place in the
hill station of Ooty and, most probably, the southern queen of the hills
will become even more famous for its "thread garden".
allergies at bay
H. K. Kharbanda
IT has become a part of your
life ó those recurring sniffles. Cold medications havenít worked,
nor have grandmaís age-old remedies. You worry about the crucial
presentation you have to do the next morning and try to wave the cold
away with a quick-fix capsule. At times such conditions could be due to
an allergy. The skin, eyes, nose, throat, lungs, gastrointestinal tract,
almost every organ of body is prone to allergy.
propels this tale
Ervell E. Menezes
WHEN a body is rescued at sea
and the man (finally alive) doesnít remember his identity it is ideal
stuff for a spy film. And when this fugitive on the run meets up with an
equally enigmatic female the fare is doubly suspenseful. Thatís the
recipe then of The Bourne Identity, the quintessential spy
thriller based on a Robert Ludlum novel.
