American author John Maxwell had a couple things to say about 'growth'. The one that applies to the Punjabi film director Amit Prasher goes like this--If we are growing, we are always going to be out of our comfort zone.
Punjabi cinema is definitely riding up the ladder, pretty fast as well. As a side-affect it is also making people related to this genre to do things out of the box. Instead of following the hit formulae, actors, producers and directors in Punjabi cinema have taken the word 'different' really differently!

The Role of the Arms
The golf swing is basically composed of two elements – the up and down action of the arms and the turning motion of the body. The body is the power producer and the arms transfer the energy to the ball. One could say that the body is the engine of the swing and the arms are the transmission which transfers the power to the wheel which is the club head.
Crumbles, cobblers and carpenters...
I first heard about a dessert named Cobbler during my stay in England. Needless to say I was aghast! Why would any dish be called a cobbler, I wondered. Would leather be its core ingredient? Worse still, would Britain next inflict on me a dessert called Carpenter ?
For a carefree life
This is the time of the year when freshers at college are just about settling into the new life, and experiencing a whole new freedom.
