Doctor-ed move
In a country like India, completing a degree is the utmost priority in life. And if is a doctorate degree, heavens fall if someone even remotely thinks of dropping it! Shamoly Khera, the anchor with UTV Stars, found herself in the same dilemma and then decided to follow her heart's calling. "I got through my MBBS exam, but I realised I wanted to do something creative.

success mantra
A course well-defined
When you have no one to fall back upon, you rise. Such has been the case of Atul Gupta, co-founder and chief mentor of RedAlkemi. A venture that he started during the '80s while still in college, along with Anuja Lath, thrives on the motto of 'making today better than yesterday'.

Master Chef
Creamy cheesy easy!
What is life without a block of cheese I say? Quite drab, quite bland, quite unexciting I also say! Cheese is made out to be a villain in the culinary world due to its high calories. Somehow we overlook the fact that it is a good source of calcium, vitamin D and protein too. Adding a handful of grated cheese to a dish gives you lots of benefits and truck-loads of flavour.

HEART talk
