Navina Sundaram Heart & soul
Yet another evening sky dissolves carelessly in the blue of the night, but the stars remain. It seems like the advent of an awakening, perhaps a stirring in the soul; nevertheless the realisation lingers…at the Government Museum and Art Gallery, Sector 10, as Navina Sundaram and Dayanita Singh decorate the grand National Art Week.

Short Take: Navina Sundaram

Drashti Dhami and Vivian D’Sena Telly-ing a tale
They sell dreams; they can beautifully and soulfully sell tears as well. They can alter your fashion statement, forcing you to refurbish the entire wardrobe. They can make you doubt your spouse; if they get nasty they can change the entire vaastu of your real-life relationships. They are the television actors, who live in the world of Gabriel Garcia Marquez and guess it is the audience who has to deal with their magic realism!

(L-R) Parvesh and Jai Two good!
It's a see-saw of prospects that the designer duo Parvesh Chauhan are flitting in between these days; either making festive couture pieces or pursuing a doctorate in fashion from Ireland or even exploring the options of entrepreneurship. From celebrating colours through clothes to collaborating on the venture Schengen Pathways, a step-by-step pathway available to people wishing to set up a business, reside, live, work, study abroad in a country of their choice, they have their hands full.

Usha Mangeshkar Lyrical notes
An interaction with yesteryear singer Usha Mangeshkar is the equivalent of an opinion poll. Reality shows, item numbers, award ceremonies and remixed music…her take on things as well as the comparative analysis between the era gone by and the one that awaits us. "We should come a full circle soon. History repeats itself and so does fashion. Musical tastes stand on a similar footing," in the city to perform at the concert Old Melodies, she is all hopeful and positive. "If today's generation is exposed to old world melodies, they'll definitely take interest in it. The avenues of them being aware of good music and lyrics are very less."

The foodies
A room of luxury
Food….the word can create a galaxy of images. And one image that has become strongly associated with food is opulence! Indeed, food has definitely become opulent and so are the places serving it. The Pewter Room occupies a fancy corner in Sector-26. It is fancy that gets us started. So if your eyeballs take a nano second to adjust to the richness inside, just remind yourself that food just got really fancier. The Pewter Room which opened last year could intimidate you with luxury, but it is the food you came in for, didn’t you?
Eating out at The Pewter Room is a visually appealing and tastebud stimulating experience

Harpreet Blues no more
Here’s a set of musicians attempting to recap the tale of the Bagpiper who managed to hypnotise the mice out of the town by the sheer potency of his musical genius. Only this time, the musicians at Bella Vista are planning to drive away the worries and boredom away, instead of the mice. Spare the exaggeration that follows with the description of their talent, but had the words been enough, would we ever need music?

Girls have fun at the Rose Festival. Say it with a rose!
A festival on a weekend, despite the ill-timed rain, is just about perfect. And when it is the much-touted Rose Festival, it cannot get better!

Floral tribute: Girls have fun at the Rose Festival.

Groom your garden
The changing weather has not only confused gardeners but plants too. The repeated climatic fluctuations have partially affected the flowering factor. The plants are putting up blooms but with no certainty. The flower shows are held on scheduled dates, but the die-hard participants are scared. Is my garden the only one without flowers? Apparently, it is not.

Furry & fiery
“Chutki!Chutki” calls out young Harshim and who do we see gliding into the room? A small ball of fur with all the feline grace. She halts, sensing the presence of strangers and then looks questioningly with big green eyes at her owner. As she settles down with a soft purring noise with Harshim, she becomes more relaxed and starts licking and cleaning her paws!
