Hell of a time
A night for the witches, ghosts and vampires; Halloween is definitely a night for Chandigarh youngsters too!
The charm of the dead and the evil is as old as old school itself. It's not for nothing that for most of us Macbeth remains more of a mystery than a tragedy. Lizard's leg, owlet's wing, eye of a newt, toe of a frog, scale of a dragon and tooth of wolf…hell can be so much fun. Halloween's all the more! It's a night of mischief, an eve when the ghosts, the witches and the fairies take over. So, while the superstitions continue to struggle with religious beliefs, the youngsters, in the meantime, are more than willing to give their thumbs up to creepy night outs.

From witches' kitchen
Feeling hungry? How about trying out Devil's eggs, Spider's nest noodles, Witches' broth, Bigfoot chicken, Eyeball soup, Jack-o-Lantern breads, Monster manchurian, Bat brinjal salad, Tombstane chicken salad, if those don't send shivers down your spine?

Play on
Evolution is a continuous process; it takes places everywhere and all the time. However, it is the changing dynamics of music that we are interested in right now.

Men are mushier
A study suggests that men are three times more likely to be the first one to say "I love you" in a relationship. According to psychologist Marissa Harrison, women are actually more careful than men when it comes to romance. This clearly contradicted previous findings, which showed that women are more expressive about how they feel, and tend to fall in love first.

Upasana Dutt visits Shahi Masjid Friendship knows no borders
My trip to Lahore was a dream come true! However, it would not have been possible without my friends' support. My grandparents belonged to Lahore and I longed to see this city which was once called the Paris of Asia. And after all, it is said that the one who has not seen Lahore is not born (Jihne Lahore nae dekhya oh jamya nae).
