Apparels in hues that rock
for a new you, party smart herbal products for the 'morning after' and so
many other glam products, the city is all set to usher in the New Year,
says Saurabh Malik
You are ready to slip into your stilettos for dancing into dawn and
delight! After pulling that alluring little red dress out of the mind’s
closet, right! Or else, you plan to deck up your jaunty jalopy with
balloons and gladioli for driving all the way through celebrations into
the New Year!
dancers, desi spirit
Belly dancers are no more swinging to the beats of celebrations. Bar
tenders — igniting the sparks of passion by setting ablaze the counters
— too are out of the revelers’ spirits. In 2006, ‘international’
dancers and disc jockeys all the way from Europe and Dubai are setting the
pace for the New Year Eve’s celebrations, rhythmically and gorgeously.
Right folks, you have guessed it correctly. Dancing and singing sensations
from across the border are all set to make sizzling-with-excitement night
hotter for the out-to-chill crowd. Taj Chandigarh has already tied up with
the Les Belles Duval Revue for a ‘stunning performance’ in the Grand
A tour of the city’s prominent
bookshops and polite inquiries while on a quest to find out what the city
has been reading this year led to a major revelation. Many of the
bestsellers of 2006 had not been published this year, but were published
kalp for Chandigarh in 007
At the time of the year when
the Archies and other gift nooks are flooded with people to get the best
gifts for their loved ones as a New Year welcome, what would you like to
have from your city beautiful in the year 2007? The catch phase this
year-end for Chandigarh people is Happy New Chandigarh. All wish to see it
happier and newer in the year to come.
WRITE TO RENEE
I am 23 years old and have been with my girlfriend for four years. We were
studying theatre together and have been seeing each other ever since.
Somehow I have started feeling very caught up in a situation as she is
looking for marriage and I am not ready for it yet. I feel I have to see
the world and experiment with my life somewhat.
The year 2006 proved to be a
triumphant year for Bollywood with an altogether different genre of movies
ruling the box office. If Rang De Basanti and Omkara did a good business
across Indian cinema circuits then the grand success of Kabhi Alvida Na
Kehna overseas was no less. It seems as the year 2007 holds much more as
the producers and directors gear up to give a face-lift to Bollywood once

The last day of the year is
usually earmarked for pondering. TV journalism prepares slides showing
events of the year unfolding – making sure there are plenty of
jubilation and destruction covered. If I were to prepare a slide show of
Chandigarh in progression – it too would be worth reflecting on.
Perfectly chiseled face,
imposing six-feet-two inches height, athletic gait, dark brown hair and
eyes, make Paul Harika a face walking straight out of the Mills and Boons.
His story is a happy one too, but one that took a lot of hard work to make
his starry dreams come true.
New Year is bringing a delicious gift for all you food lovers to savour.
Along with a holiday, you will get a chance of tasting Sunday brunch
buffet. Right fellows, the cool concept of breakfast-lunch combo
“oh-so-hot” in metropolitans across the country has come to the city.
