True blue
Team India is set to don its new, stylish and hi-tech jersey for the upcoming season of ODIs and T20 matches
The thing that we all love about the colour blue is that the moment a bunch of eleven walk into the field wearing it, it becomes the colour of the nation!

Guest appearance
The city is high on hosting its guests these days. Tourism seems to suit the Corbusier city nicely: a picture perfect example of sticking to traditions and yet modernising. A lot is happening and more is on the cards. While the tourists enjoy a special treatment and we are at our hospitable best, a curiosity arises. That of checking out what tourist spot gets the most attention from our guests!

Warming up to winter
Style, colour, pattern … the autumn/winter collection has a lot to offer
Crisp patterns, weaved fabric, bright hues; greeting winters on a warm note, what we saw for women autumn/winter collection is a play of colours, structured lines, fitted silhouettes and well-defined designs. Style and colour though remain almost similar to last year, for the coming season we saw a lot of checks, abstract designs, leather and velvet patches and fur too seemed to be riding high. Natural fur, artificial fur, red fur, green fur, black fur; fur is everywhere. And if you like fur well, it's high time you get a few garments made of it.

Passing the book
Those belonging to the borrowing school of thought will love this! British Library on Tuesday unveiled Books on Holiday; a concept that might not have anything much to do with holidays, but has everything else to do with reading, celebration of the hobby, rather a habit and ensuring that the cult grows.

LINE of control
It's a cross between art and architecture, a dedication to the geometrical grid of sectors, a celebration of straight, sleek structures and every other shape that is so akin to the city. Chandigarh and Me, an exhibition by Namita Kohli, during the celebrations of World Tourism Week, is a journey into the works inspired by Corbusier's philosophy.

Two much fun

Love hurts
at or Life Style, The Tribune, 
Sector 29-C, Chd
I am a 19-year-old boy in a relationship with a girl of the same age, but from a different city. We met at Kurukshetra University previous year, but she soon went off to Panipat for another course. Though we both feel for each other, but since she has left for another city, we have been fighting almost everyday. Now, she says she can do everything for her parents, even leave me. I wonder what has happened to her, how come her feelings have suddenly changed. I have also asked some mutual friends to intervene but it is of no use. I am left with no solution and I am unable to do anything. Please help me to sort this relationship it is very difficult for me to live without her.

It’s kids first
Holidays are the most awaited time of the year, both for elders as well as the kids. It is the time to sit back, relax and just do ‘nothing’. The key to a good holiday lies in proper planning, especially when the little ones are with you. Another good way of ensuring that your holiday with children is a success is to plan trips that they will enjoy.
