Big on small screen
Growing bigger in proportion and popularity, the Indian television industry is certainly drawing in stars from Bollywood
Ronit Roy with Avika Gor
So, Bollywood finally seems to have crossed the final barrier. There were special guest appearances; cameos, star hosts and celebrity reality show contestants. But then that wasn't enough. So, they went a step ahead. Hey, we are not talking Hollywood here, instead a bigger phenomenon - the Indian television industry.

Heeling touch
From six inches above the ground, it's a bad world down there. Callous and unkind, most of the time it's bothered about petty issues like a sequin missing in the sequence, inappropriate colour scheme, improper finishing. The rest of the time it's busy appreciating the design, cut and silhouette. Who has time to spare a thought for the poor feet that introduce fashion to the world?

Lunch hour
Even after a healthy breakfast, one shouldn’t ignore the lunch
We have adapted ourselves into believing that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, something that should not be missed at any cost. But then it isn't the only meal of the day we have. With due respect to all nutritionists, diet experts and health columnists of the world, breakfast is taken care of. Lunch, well, it's something we still take for granted. When in school, the only thing that excited us was the recess. Status was decided on the basis of contents of the tiffin box.

Zucchini ki Kahaani
At first sight, you'll think its a cucumber. At second glance, it could well be a "turaii" that has lost its ridges somewhere along the way. The green, glossy zucchini is a relatively new entrant in our vegetable markets. In Europe it's more known as courgette. Most buyers are skeptical about how to treat this shiny gorgeous looking member of the squash family. It's really quite versatile, making its way into casseroles, stir fries, soups and salads with equal ease. It adapts extremely well to baking, crumb-frying, stewing and being eaten raw in salads.

Fad chance
Experts have warned that non-dairy or wheat-free fad diets could be putting young women at risk of developing osteoporosis in later life. Research has shown that nearly a third of women are so keen to shed those extra kilos that they are cutting out entire food groups.

Melodious note
Negating the general belief that artistes are born and not made, Manimajra-based Uma Patial took to the realm of vocal music at the age of 19, only to excel thereafter.

Mel Gibson Right to rage?
Mad Max star Mel Gibson’s anger at ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva may have been caused by “righteous rage”, say experts. According to experts said what causes a calm individual to morph into an out of control monster in a traffic jam, may stem from a survival instinct.
