(L-R) Sanjana Jon, Neeru Bajwa and Arjan Bajwa Fashion-ABLE
We have it all, well almost - cinema, which is graduating from better to the best, food with unmatched taste, which is famous across the globe, flourishing businesses in every district… Punjab has it all. The only thing we are probably trailing in is fashion. Although there is no match to the elegant Patiala salwar kameez, Punjab needs a trendy dope on fashion. And bringing it to the state is the second season of Blenders Pride Punjab International Fashion Week, which is to be held soon. Actor Neeru Bajwa, Arjan Bajwa, brand ambassador for the event, and designer Sanjana Jon talk about Punjab getting fashionable.

Hard Kaur Rap chick
A rowdy kid, a hard nut to crack — nothing could intimidate her, nothing could make her nip her passion, nothing could ever stop her from dreaming because nothing could affect her…Hard Kaur has everything today. A sensational rap star, she has not only taken the music scene in Punjab but also in Bollywood by storm. She carries the 'I-give-a-damn-attitude' in the right proportion and is now all set to rock with new projects. In Chandigarh en route to Ambala for Tuborg Strong Fungama Nights, the rap star is as candid as ever.

Make a splash!
How about some thrill, adventure and entertainment this weekend? Soak in the falls or showers or take a 50-feet slide to land in a whirlpool. Before the winter sets in, and the season is closer than it seems, we suggest a day of water adventure. Some 45 minutes on the Barwala road from Chandigarh is Funcity, one of the first and the largest theme parks of the region. This park has six landing pools, one activity pool, one wave pool and 18 water slides of different sizes and shapes, including a few small ones for children.

Sonu Gandhi Bride & beautiful
Sonu Gandhi, the fashion designer from Ludhiana, is giving a new definition to Punjabi designs by showcasing her works at the Punjab International Fashion Week. And that's what brought her to Chandigarh on Thursday at Tao-26 for the model hunt auditions.

Punjabi cinema has come a long, long way. From showcasing the jatt, his zameen and badla; owning up the responsibility of highlighting social evils to making pure commercial films, Punjabi cinema has graduated to the next level.

On your HEELS!
Although it's still hot, the fashion-conscious have already started planning their wardrobes for the coming winter. And one of the key ingredients to make a wardrobe complete is footwear. Most of the fashion designers have already created and presented their footwear collections for fall/winter 2011/2012 and the trends are quite diverse.

Dress to die for
Some 400 dresses and accessories that belonged to the late US film star Elizabeth Taylor will be auctioned in December, as well as more than 200 pieces of her jewellery. Christie's auction house said yesterday that the December event will include dresses, shoes and handbags that span 50 years in the life of the Hollywood star, including items by Chanel, Christian Dior and Versace.

Blue Lassi
If you're feeling blue, jumpstart your mood with the ‘blue lassi’ cocktail.

In the same league
In a not-so-smart move, the makers of Tell Me Oh Khuda starring Esha Deol and others are releasing the movie alongside Shah Rukh Khan's Ra.One this Diwali. Even Himesh Reshammiya is releasing his film on that day. Hema Malini, who is directing the film, feels people tend to watch more movies in Diwali than on regular days.

A season of love
Mausam, a love story, revolves around a Punjabi boy Harry and a Kashmiri girl Aayat and their adolescent crush. The backdrop is a small village in Punjab. It later blossoms into mature love. Their love realises its own depth in the hours of separation which finally culminates into togetherness. But not before going through their share of pain and learning the truth about universal love. It is a passionate story which captures various shades of life, questioning us and yet restraining itself from becoming judgmental.
