Married to Success
They are drop-dead gorgeous, enormously talented, very much married & rule the BO. Our favourites of the actor-wife-mom brigade...
would start with rumours of an
evening spent with a special someone. Soon news of an engagement would
travel through the grapevine. And then, some hard-core sniffing would
uncover the truth, and our gorgeous lady would be forced to speak. A
secret ceremony, few wedding pictures in the paper and after a while all
that we would hear or see of the celeb mom would be brief appearances at
award functions. Well, this was till yesterday when the female lead actors
were happy to be once stars, and later celeb wives and moms.
Will they, Won’t they?

Folks, go zorbing!
Roll down a slope inside a plastic ball at Solang
How many of you are game for zorbing? If you are hearing about it for the first time, here’s a brief
introduction. A zorb is a large plastic
ball, usually about 3 m in diameter though some are larger. You get inside
and roll down a slope in the ball. It is done solo or in pairs. In some
zorbs, you are strapped to the inside wall, in others you are not and you
flop about as it rolls!
Strapping into the harness inside the zorb.
FILM & FASHION
A perfect balance
For Hollywood actress
Angelina Jolie, balancing motherhood and work is not as great a challenge
as one might think. While talking about her latest animated film ‘Beowulf’,
the 32-yea-old actress said, "You try to balance and try not to work
too much. You take turns working, so it’s not too hard."

The Municipal Corporation has slammed
shut the chapter on book-hunting pleasure by removing the section of
footpath stalls from Chandigarh’s history. Ever since it allocated
permanent kiosks to the booksellers in Sector 15, the charm of
"coming across the unexpected" has simply disappeared.
The good ol’ second-hand book market in its new avtar has lost its charm.
Love your footsie
Come winter, and with it
comes the problem of cracked heels. An extremely common condition in
winter , it usually stems up from dry skin. If neglected, the feet can
turn ugly leading to callus, deep heel cracks, which further attract dust
and increase the risk of infection.
Generation leaps, sequels,
remakes: That’s telly’s concept of fresh & new!
Our good ol’ idiot box never fails to
surprise us, especially when it comes to its lack of innovation. Till a
couple of years, the charge on our desi dabba was its attempt to
get coloured in the videshi rang. This task christened
Mission Inspiration brought with it soaps, reality programme or game show
that our NRI brothers once watched.
Prerna & her never-ending
With small screen offering good opportunities to young
talent and many making a name for themselves, young and beautiful with an
innocent smile, Anokhi Srivastava of Balaji’s Kahin To Hoga and Khichdi
fame, is not new to the small screen. This, Business-
Management-degree-holder- turned-actress has deep roots in this
city as her relatives are here and her mother is from Ferozepore.
