Life in a Glass house
Home aquariums are an involvement rather than a fad for many tricity folks
No that's not all, there is more 'life' at our house. This way…," Chetna Sharma, homemaker from Sector-37, ushers one to a nice, bright and decorated corner. "Here, they also stay with us.

Glam life, grim realities
An ex-beauty queen killed her parents recently. What is pushing glam girls into depression and even crime?
It’s a model’s life that many of us want to live. But behind all that glitz and glamour there lies a life full of stress and cutthroat competition. Here, too the rule ‘survival of the fittest’ applies and for many, who entered the glam world hoping to make a mark, life was never the same again. Remember Nafisa Jospeh, Kuljeet Randhwa, Geetanjali Nagpal? All three went through a severe bout of depression, which proved fatal for the former two cases.

Sab Golmaal hai
Sharman Joshi Actor Sharman Joshi, who opted out of the sequel to Golmaal that is raking in big money at the box office, says he made a mistake by not doing Golmaal Returns. "Sure I regret it," Sharman said, weeks after Golmaal Returns was declared a hit. "And not just because the sequel is a success. I hated myself for breaking up the Golmaal team. But it couldn't be helped. My dates were committed elsewhere," Sharman said. Now Sharman, who got noticed for his performance in films like Rang De Basanti and Life... In a Metro, says he won't miss the third segment of Golmaal.

At 80, Dara Singh says he was never interested in films
He was perhaps Bollywood's first macho man. Dara Singh, who turned 80 on Wednesday, says after starring in over 120 films that the big screen was never his aspiration. "I was never interested in doing films. I was pulled into the industry because of the fame I received from wrestling. I was forced to do King Kong (1962) and it became a hit and that started my film career," Dara Singh said.

Housebreaking your pup
You should begin to housebreak as soon as you bring your new puppy home and this is going to take patience. Puppies need to relieve themselves approximately six times a day. A puppy should be taken out immediately after each meal since a full stomach puts pressure on the colon and bladder.
