A creation by Sunil Mehra The recently cancelled Vizag Fashion Week once again stirs up the controversy and we wonder whether spirituality makes for a safe fashion subject…
Faith-fully fashionable
Slip into a tee that has a motif of Lord Ganesha printed on it and yet it won't mean that you are wearing spirituality on your sleeve, even when you tangibly are! Spirituality and fashion: the combination is more for the sake of fashion than for spirituality. A tangential message might be there, but on the whole it is fashion that takes centerstage.

Model choice
It was only on his mother's insistence that the handsome, six-feet tall Amninder Singh Grewal decided to take part in the Mr. Ludhiana contest in 2013. During practice, after getting selected through the auditions, he overheard choreographer Vikrant Sharma as saying, "Amninder seems very disinterested." That statement really shook him; Amninder put in his hundred per cent and won the coveted crown of Mr Ludhiana after three rounds, including Western, bridal and formal.

The good old pizza
Hot ambers emanate from the fire over the burning-golden wood in the oven that melts the cheese over these pizzas. As compared to 'push-button-beep-get-the-pizza' methods at multinational food outlets, this quaint old way of making pizzas in wood-fire ovens has its own charm. Not only for the method of preparation, but also for the taste of the pizzas!

Make your feet happy
A lot of people tend to suffer from painful foot disorders without realising what is causing or aggravating them. Feet endure tremendous pressures of daily living. An average day of walking brings a force equal to several hundred tons on them. They are subject to more injury than any other part of the body.

When Chandigarh was born, the city was lucky to have Dr M S Randhawa as its first chairman of the Landscape Advisory Committee. A passionate horticulturist, he introduced many species in this city, both indigenous as well as exotic, not however, disturbing the local groves of fruit trees and other indigenous species. Some of the exotic species introduced in the city established themselves making Chandigarh their natural abode.
