Till holidays do us part

The concept of separate vacations, something that was unheard of even a few years ago, is now rather common among urban upper middle-class couples. Often due to busy work schedules, they can be seen heading off on their own when unable to manage time-off together.
Ritusmita Biswas takes a look

TILL death do us part seems an obsolete concept. Now even vacations are enough reason for urban couples to part ways. Take, for example, Nilanjan and Sharmistha Roy of Kolkata. Their family of four always part ways during vacation times, simply because they have different tastes and preferences. So, while their twin sons head towards a summer camp in Darjeeling, Sharmistha heads to her elder sisterís home in Bangalore where she can spend some time with her maternal family.

Lack of security
Travelling alone might be fun but it comes with its own set of problems. The first and foremost among them is the lack of security. As per the common male mindset, especially in India, a single woman is seen to be available, and this can often pose to be a major security issue.

Safety first

S a woman traveller, and the type that tends to wander off the beaten track, I long for a recommended list of places and countries that point out where women should go and where they should not go. Planning a holiday would be much easier if there was a clear divide between best and worst places for women venturing out into the big bad world.

Golden age of Hopper
As Ervell E. Menezes recalls the finest period of Hollywood, he pays a tribute to Dennis Hopper, who became an icon of the American counter culture in the 1970s
Dennis Hopper died obscurely and well nigh unsung after succumbing to cancer of the prostate recently. This was in total contrast to the late 1960s when his Easy Rider became a cult film that struck a blow for anti-establishment.

Match your style with figure
Women no longer follow trends. They go for the clothes, hairstyles and glasses that suit them, says Banalata Bipani
O
VER the years, women shopping around in Indian emporiums have become wiser in choosing their couture. The cognoscenti amongst them no longer follow trends, but, instead, go for the clothes, hairstyles and glasses that gel with their shapes and sizes.
