success mantra
A soldierís word
Love for the olive green is what General (retd) JJ Singh inherited in his genes.

Sporting fewer clothes and making a bold fashion statement only happens in summer. And with the scorching sun and the maddening heat, you need to dress up just the minimal. Let the conservative clubs say whatever, those who want to look every bit fashionable give two hoots and stick to clothes that keep them cool. Spaghetti straps, sleeveless tops, ganjis, tank-tops bottomed up with really short shorts or skirts look the trendiest in summer.

If you consider the fact that you spend probably half your life sitting at your desk and PC, how you sit has a huge impact on your muscles, digestive system, circulation, breathing and even your bones.
