A lesson well learnt
The dream begins with a teacher who believes in you, who tugs and pushes and leads you to the next plateau, sometimes poking you with a sharp stick called truth...wrote Dan Rather, American journalist.

Guru cool!

Masters of the art

And just when you wonder whether they’ll utter any word, let alone answer any question, one of them grabs the microphone and dispels any misgivings. Currently, Om Chhetri and Jeet Das, runners-up of Zee TV’s DID Li’l Master, are on a thanksgiving tour in Chandigarh or perhaps on a promotion of five-week series Dance Ke Superkids, bringing together the little champions of both seasons. No matter how grown up they act and give the well-rehearsed speeches, the duo has everyone around baby-talk them!

Taste of Delhi

And, now it is Park Plaza’s all-day dinning restaurant Cinnamon that has brought the same flavours of Delhi, served them on the platter with their on-going food festival Delhi-6 Fiesta. If you get lost in the busy by-lanes of Chandani Chowk at Cinnamon, be assured there are different streets and roads that will help you find your way.
