What else is it if not a stroke of luck? Minus any strenuous auditions, competition from other contestants or references from well-connected people, Sneha Upadhyay was able to make it to the final list of the Kingfisher Calendar Hunt 2012. The producer of the show spotted her on Facebook, contacted her through the social networking site and gave her a slot in the final round. "It was easy only till the entry point; the actual test began later. The tasks were extremely tough. I didn't have any experience in modelling, unlike the other girls, who knew how to strike the perfect poses," says the model, who was in Chandigarh for the opening of a fine jewellery and trousseau store, Tashya. And she got her due for all the hardwork she put in after she won the first runners-up position!

One-and-a-half hours is late by even laid-back standards, but when Karanvir Bohra with wife Teejay Sidhu in tow, walk in with profuse apologies and amidst friendly banter while passing the buck, the delay sounds inevitable and the reasons plausible. "Guys, you should never travel by ****** airlines, board a train instead," shoots Karanvir. Chips in Teejay Sidhu, "I had thought I'd wear a parandi and dress up like a pretty Punjaban, but the late arrival watered our plans." As of now, while sitting at Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf, they are out to let Chandigarh know of their Punjabi plans.

Life as he sees it…
Rows of empty chairs outside a cafe is a passable sight, till someone decides to freeze it into eternity. Nobody would give a second glance to a woman carrying a child at the door step, and then it's turned into a photograph. A captured moment becomes a reason to reflect and ponder. While a few frames depict life's metaphors, others of the 41 photographs by Belgium's globe-trotter photographer Douglas Vanherpe cover a wide spectrum of subjects.
Tracing the roots
Chronicling Chandigarh and its people is what Aneesh Bhanot loves. Now, he is out with his latest book Temples of the Tri-City Vol I.
The right choice
Every person has a sense of style in his/her own right. Yet there are only a few who'd attract the second glances, who have the power to make the camera go zoom on them. It could be tousled hair, it could be torn jeans. Our this week's face in the crowd is Sanna Dhiman, post-graduate student in marketing.
