Band-wagon rolls on
When it comes to exploring its young creative talent, especially in music, Chandigarh unknowingly sabotages its repute of being the artistically impotent town for the retired! Had it not been for the virtue of these young artists and their musical talent, the city hotels and lounges would not have gone beyond the ghazal singers, stationed at a cornered stage, making futile efforts to entertain the disinterested crowd.

Joint effort
The overhead deep squat is the most important exercise/test for golf fitness. The ability to perform this test requires good ankle movement (dorsi-flexion), ability to bend correctly from the knees and hips (flexion) as well as extension of the thoracic spine. which is the ability to pull your shoulders back and keep your chest extended. If there is a weakness in any of these areas you will not be able to perform this exercise. Therefore, it tests almost all the golf-specific muscles as well as joints and is the most important test.

Food goes festive !
There's fast-food, and there is fast -food. One is sinfully rich and calories laden, quickly turned out at cafes and roadside carts ; the other fast-food is what "vrat" keepers consume during Navratraas and other festive times. We bring our fasting friends a refreshingly different version of a Swedish delicacy called Roesti. It can be made with sweet potatoes or the good old potato itself.
