A bright lot
Colours have an innate capacity to look beyond medium, boundaries and limits. Keeping this thought in mind, Bama Academy of Fine Arts, Panchkula, has brought the works all its students under one roof. The 13th annual art exhibition includes the works of people from all walks of life. 

With the winter making its way, if lazing around under the sun is on your agenda, how about heading to the hills this weekend? Surya Rock Rose Resorts, some 45 km from Chandigarh on the Chandigarh-Shimla highway, offers a luxurious retreat in the lap of nature! This three-star resort with a breathtaking view offers a comfortable stay. Tastefully done rooms and cottages with two rooms plus a living area as well as the hospitable staff are quite inviting. 

Mirza lives on
In most cases, it takes a while to understand your heart's calling. For Punjabi singer Gippy Grewal, it took two movies Mel Kara De Rabba and Jiney Mera Dil Luteya to come to an understanding as to where his heart lies. But, of course, movies!

Wheel of fortune
A trailer used by late actress Elizabeth Taylor on the sets of 1963 movie "Cleopatra", is set to go under the hammer.

Cup of health
Green tea may be effective in reducing bad cholesterol, a study has found. Green tea contains antioxidant compounds called catechins, which many studies have tested for their effect on cholesterol even though the studies have been small and had conflicting results.

           Being fashionable

Every person has a sense of style. Yet, there are only few who’d attract the second glances, who have the power to make the camera go zoom on them. It could be the tousled hair, it could be the torn jeans. Our this week’s face in the crowd is Humpy Bajwa, B Com student from Guru Gobind Singh College for Women, Chandigarh who believes in just being herself when it comes to dressing up.

Your sense of style is…

Classy yet modern.
Latest addition in the wardrobe, a Jean Paul’s white fur jacket. I finally ended my search after a whole year.

Brand freak or street smart?
Depends on what I am looking for. I wouldn’t mind wearing something too expensive or too cheap. But it should be eye catching.

Choose one—sporty, glamorous or chic
Glam, glam, glam. Gold and silver are my colours.

Your style icon?
Fergie, because she is not only a very good singer, she’s also a fabulous designer.
Who’s the worst dressed celebrity around?
I would have to say Vidya Balan. I grew up looking at her always wearing something hideous.

One fashion trend you don’t understand…
Baggy jeans. It looks like their pants are stuffed, making them look abnormally fat!

Your take on accessories
I believe that accessories should be dealt with very smartly. Too much of it can overshadow the outfit and too less can be dampener.

One thing that boosts your confidence…
High heels because heels bring out the beauty of a woman’s body. Heels are a must for every woman irrespective of their height.
