To begin with, there were female fans shouting at the top of the voices – ‘I love you Abhishek’. There was also one who didn’t mind taking the mike just to say – ‘I am not a scribe but took the mike just to tell you that wish I was Aishwarya Rai. I won’t mind waiting for a lifetime for you’.

Get the right plane
The Swing Plane is probably the most misunderstood or debated part of the golf swing. As golf is a side-on game the club must swing on an arc, which is from Inside-to Square to target line-to-inside again. The degree of curvature can vary. We do not want to cross the target line, which would be the case in an inside-to-out or an out-to-in path. These paths refer to the downswing and not the back swing.

Enter the BEST
Numerical data…analysing it is not an interesting prospect. But one odd time, it can be attention grabbing. Like this one—India currently has over 2,00,000 hotel rooms spread across hotel categories and guest houses, and is still facing a shortfall of over 100,000 rooms (source: FHRAI). The country is witnessing an unprecedented growth in hotel constructions and will be adding almost 1,14,000 hotel guest rooms to its inventory over the next five years. (source: HVS)

Madhuri, the style diva
Madhuri Dixit looks gorgeous and she is glowing these days. Her sense of style has come a long way too. She usually wears traditional clothes that suit her. We take a look at her style statement.

Black beauty: She looks lovely and we like the simple and elegant saree with the motifs. She has draped it right. She keeps her accessories to bare minimum with a clutch and a bracelet. Ethnic look: The combination of red, maroon, and gold looks rich. Her feet look very pretty. We are glad that her anarkali is not floor length. Casual blunder: Madhuri does not impress with this one. The jeans should have been skinny and tight. We do not like the visible inner. Overall, the clothes do not make an impact. On dot: We love the polka-dotted black, gold, and red saree. She knows how to cover her weight. We like the jhumkas and the simple make-up. She allows the saree steal the show. Kya baat hai: That is her expression. She is a sight to behold in the soft sea-green and lavender saree. She looks completely relaxed.
