Going for a six

n everlasting itch to stay at home after dark! Abhorrence for bed with desire to spend long sleepless nights on the sofa with feet on the table. A constant yearning for savouring more than just action on the television set. A fixation for the giant screen. And a longing to live in a different time zone — the symptoms of the World Cup fever are loud and clear! As India gets ready to tackle her rivals on Saturday, the fever is fast attaining the proportions of an epidemic with more and more people catching the bug.

A taste of Carribean
alypso cuisine is all set to hit a six, courtesy the World Cup fever! The city—never one to be left out of any excitement—even ‘curries’ sports into its food! So, get ready to sample Caribbean cooking accompanied by a swig of ‘Inzy’s Sweep’ (a slow moving yet potent cocktail) along with all the cricketing fever on a big screen at Manor, Sector 26.

Small IS really smart
All good things bloom in small size, Mandeep Sekhon tells Saurabh Malik
he finds big pleasure in small things. No wonder, almost every thing in Mandeep Sekhon’s garden is miniature. Push open the impressive gates to her palatial Sector 9 house and you experience big pleasure – the lush grass accords a green carpet welcome, bonsais all along the garden do their bit too. It looks like a scene straight out of a fairy-tale! In fact, admiring the undersized trees with charm sticking out in form of roots, you feel like Gulliver in Lilliput. It hardly takes you a minute to realise why her wonderland with all things minute was adjudged the best by the Chandigarh Administration in the “big garden category” during the recently concluded Rose Festival.

Durries all the way
Saurabh Malik
heerful cotton and woollen durries in shades and styles to match your room’s décor and mood are fast pushing the concept of carpets under the rug.
