Beer hug
Beer is a beverage that can be enjoyed at any time of the day. Here's checking out some chilled-out zones in the Tricity…

Gung ho: Vipul Dua owner, Peddlers

He was a wise man who invented beer…Plato was bang-on when he said that! At least when you look around the tricity lounges, restaurants and breweries (they are only in Panchukla as UT doesn't give permission for a brewery in Chandigarh), you so want to give a high-five to the wise man Plato!

Panchkula alone has three breweries and Chandigarh has some fine places that serve good, frothy variety of beer. Some like Peddlers in Sector-35 even promote beer drinking in the morning! The wonderful thing about the drink is that even if you gulp a lot, it won't make your body or head heavy!

Go guzzle

Vipul Dua, owner, Peddlers, has a compilation of quotes on beer. He pulls out one quickly, "Beer is a proof that god loves us. Benjamin Franklin said this," he smiles. There are a hundred other things that we can see god's love in though! Coming back to the fizzy drink, Vipul shares, "The pubbing culture is pretty much catching up in the city, for this reason we have various brands of beer coming in. This is one drink that you can have anytime of the day, which also make it an instant hit with the youngsters."

Vipul promotes beer culture at Peddlers. "To enjoy beer you need the right kind of environment and yes music too."

Suraj Pratap Singh Sidhu, managing director, Ooze-The Brauhaus Microbrewery in Panchkula and Col VPS Sekhon, partner rates beer as the most popular beverage after tea. "It is widely consumed and there is a 200 per cent increase in the consumption every year." As brewery is a new concept, Suraj gets a lot of queries from the customers and also entrepreneurs who want to take a franchise. "Just because it is not hard on one's system is not the reason why youngsters take a liking to it; it should be the taste I think," he adds.

Raise a toast

The variety in beer has definitely increased. From the regular Kingfisher to Corona and all kinds of freshly brewed ones, the pitcher is full! Have you heard about organic beer? Just kidding! "The watery beer is super-filtered with no nutrients, on the other hand the freshly brewed ones are free from any chemicals, preservatives and good for health," chips in Suraj. Russian wheat beer, American pale ales, Roasted wheat beer Dunkle are some of the different flavours that you can enjoy. No one stops at one beer, so you can always order a King Pitcher, which has 3000 ml of beer for three to four people at a cost of Rs 950 here. Kingfisher Ultra bucket for Rs 750 before 6 pm at Peddlers is the best bet. However, nobody can deny the popularity of draught beers.

Rule book

Most of us know beer is associated with the word chilled. The classic ales (coming from Belgium or England) are served at a temperature of 6-8 degree celsius. "When the beer is thicker, with lots of flavour, it should be served less cold," adds Suraj.

Brand loyalty

Says Stuti Kabir Singh, who likes Corona beer, "It is light with a tangy taste, a version of Sprite or Limca maybe; a bottled beer like Carlsberg is cheap and an interesting drink at the same time." Places like Underdoggs at Elante Mall, Blue Blazer, Hops n Grains, The Pint and Peddlers are some of the places youngsters like to hit for beer.

Makeover magic

For those who love to experiment with their drinks, beer is the best bet. Beer in different flavours is the new thing. Longshot coffee-infused dark ale to a chocolate porter and a 'Christmas beer' brewed with a mix of dried fruit and spices is something new to check out.

When destiny plays its part…
Punjabi and Bollywood script-writer Rupinder Inderjit left his corporate job to be a part of the cine world
Jasmine Singh

If your life has to take a path, no matter how many detours you take, no matter how many short cuts you slip into, destiny would eventually get you on that path. Punjabi and Bollywood script-writer Rupinder Inderjit from Tholan, Ludhiana yearned to write, but then he didn't know how. He settled with masters in Anthropolgy walking with a University gold medal. But he couldn't have gone far from his destined path, "A job in the corporate sector dropped me in Mumbai. While I was doing that, I was also meeting friends from the film industry and trying to understand how to write for films," shares Rupi as friends call him. After almost three years, this young writer quit the job and wrote dialogues for an Ekta kapoor tele-series that did not take off. It was during this time that Rupi met Ram Gopal Verma. "He asked me a couple of questions, and asked me to come to work on the next day. I wrote two films for RGV that got canned," Rupi smiles calling it one of the surprises he was meant to go through.

Things changed when he met Punjabi film director Amit Prasher. "Amit came across as a director full of ideas, we discussed certain projects and finally I saw myself writing the script for Amit's second film Ishq Brandy." Rupi reads a lot of Punjabi literature, he wants to bring a fresh whiff of change in the Punjabi scripts. Before that a little dope on the creative process. "It is much of technical job than creative. I can't write a script till I have made the flowchart of it in my mind. Once I have etched out the characters, I sit down on the laptop to tap it in," adds Rupi following the new school of script writing. "I don't sit on a script for a year or six months. At the most two months even if you give me all the leisure," says he. In the middle of conversation, which takes an interesting turn, Rupi takes a long breath. "I never thought that I would be writing for Punjabi films, all thanks to Amit Prasher, a director who only wants to entertain the audience and of course my parents who supported me all the time," his voice becomes thick.

Writing can be a task, heard about the writers block! "The idea can take a while sometimes to take shape, the real challenge however in the Punjabi film industry is to meet the demands of comedy. Everyone wants something like a comedy, Bollywood is still ready to experiment. Almost all Punjabi filmmakers barring some like Amit Prasher want to see something they have already seen in Bollywood. But we are getting there." Like Rupi is... on his path he was destined to walk on.

Off beat, on track
From desperate attempts to finding a sponsor to a national award, Rajiv Sharma's Nabar is ready to hit theatres
Ashima Batish
Rajeev Sharma
rebel streak: Rajeev Sharma

A film reaches to a larger number of audience either when it is a commercial success or it garners praise at some international film festival. Nabar, the national award winning film, however, puts to rest those popular theories. The film stands true to its title, Nabar, which means a rebel, in several ways--from not approaching festivals to casting to the music of the film-- each aspect defies the norms of film-making.

"I wanted to take the film to villages of Punjab rather than the prestigious festivals," asserts Rajeev Sharma, director of the film, which is finally releasing on big screen on September 27.

The film deals with the off-beat subject of illegal migration and a father's struggle for justice for his son's murder. It might be a relevant issue in Punjab today but when a year back, Rajeev set out to find sponsor for the film, nobody showed interest. "It wasn't the kind of film that promised monetary returns. But once the film was made, producers started volunteering."

The film is a stark contrast to the popular cinema in Punjab, which Rajeev says is more about following trend than anything else. "If Rohit Shetty makes pure commercial cinema, he believes in it. Here film-makers do it because that's what everybody is doing. There is no introspection behind making films, which these days are just a compilation of gags and jokes."

Besides the unusual storyline, the music of Nabar is also breaking new grounds. There is Gurbani-inspired Chandi Di Vaar. Ustad Raza Ali Khan has rendered his voice to Baba Farid's couplets. Jyoti of Nooran Sisters fame has sung Sajjan Mere Rangde, a shabd reserved for death.

Rajeev rightly says that music is another protagonist of the film, beside Nishwan Bhullar, Harjeet Gill and Rana Ranbir. While Rajeev's first choice for the lead role was Gurdas Mann, who couldn't commit due to date problems, but he says Harjeet proved a blessing in disguise.

"Gurdas Mann would have become bigger than the character of the film, even the storyline."

It was only post winning the National Award, the film went to the Toronto Film Festival and another Indian film festival. But that, he feels, is not the real achievement. "Sukhbir Badal, deputy chief minister of Punjab, has recently passed orders to identify registered immigration agents in Punjab by October 31," informs Rajeev.

Priyanka comes clean
Priyanka Chopra talks straight from the heart about the failure of Zanjeer, her personal life and new music career

The failure of Zanjeer
Priyanka Chopra
Straight talk: Priyanka Chopra

The failure of Zanjeer disappointed me. Unless you are not trying something different, you are not evolving and that’s when the failures happen. So I am always prepared for failures. Now Krrish 3 is happening and then it’s Gunday. I did not have the time to sit back and think about what could have gone wrong.

Hits and flops

Of course they matter and I take it personally when my films don’t do well. As an actress we do four-five films a year and when one or two don’t do well, it’s fine because you have another one coming up. If I was doing one film a year, it would really matter a lot but I think I balance it. I do all kinds of films and I do films for random reasons. Sometimes I do films because I like the director.

Maintaining a balance

Professionally, I am in a space where I am fortunately doing an array of films. I am working with amazing co-actors and different types of directors so I am in a really great place. My singing career has just started now and I am a debutant right now. I am just a year old in music so I am still trying to find my feet. I have the excitement of a new comer and also the experience of someone who has done so much.


It will take people some time to accept my music and me. It’s so wonderful for me and it’s so surreal when I am in America and my song plays on the radio or I see it on TV or MTV in the US. It’s a big deal because I am a couple-of-months-old in the US. NFL has taken on my song for the second season. About 60 million people watch that game in the US and I am their headlining act. So it’s very encouraging for me. People direct and write, I started singing and I like being the first in doing things.

Personal life

I never talk about my personal life. It has always been my stand. If there is something in my personal space which is big enough to share, I wouldn’t mind it. As a public person my life is 90 per cent out there, everything is discussed and judged. I like to keep some things private and even then if there is something worthy of sharing, I definitely will. The day you will see a ring on my finger then I will tell you who it is.

Redeeming present through past
American spiritual master Leonard Orr uses regression to heal people
Ashima Batish
Leonard Orr
Karma connect: Leonard Orr

Of late regression has become quite a popular medium of spiritual healing. It transports one to several last births, helps in sifting bad karmas from the good ones. "And that in turns helps one to understand the flow of present life," says spiritual master and modern day yogi from the US, Leonard Orr, who is in Chandigarh to conduct a 9-day workshop. The only difference in his case is that he invented a nomenclature of the process, Rebirthing Breathwork. "If rhythm of breathing is correct, it can emotionally heal. It also brings about mental clarity and physical well-being."

Also, popularly referred to as the alternative healing therapy, Leonard says that he has positively affected the lives of a few thousand people through the therapy. "It helps decode the happenings of life." Like it did in his life, "I connected really well with my wife and through Rebirthing Breathwork, I realised that in the last two births also, we were together, once as a husband wife and another time as brother and sister." Leonard connects strongly to India, he came here for the first time in 1977, "I ventured out to find yogis, who were at least a hundred years old. I did manage to find some, they knew everything about their previous births." He refers to Bible, which he says also has a mention about eternal life, "I have lived in the same body for over 300 years now."

While in the US, he says that people more than the rebirth, believe in cause and effect. He adds that scientific studies have been conducted to which prove the theory of re-incarnation. "Researches on so many children suggest that they did remember a few instances from the last birth. Like in this particular one, in which a child told his mother that she had an abortion earlier because she wasn't ready to take care of the baby and that he is the same child who had come back."

Talking about his re-incarnations, Leonard claims that this is his 50 th lifetime. Talking of life, he says even death can be guessed and asks people attending his workshop to meditate and think of the number. But that doesn't fix it there, "Number will change the next time you will meditate," he says to the people present. "Because that depends on the lifestyle people follow." Do people really have to go through past life analysis to know the obvious fact!

Master Chef
Lamb & lemon delight
Tarun Deep Singh

Make the sauce

Preserved lemons should be soaked at least 15 minutes before using. Drain and separate lemon skin away from pith and pulp. Place the lemon skins in a blender with the olive oil and water, blend until lemon skins have completely broken down. Add salt pepper and garlic paste to taste. Set aside.

Method for lamb chops

  • Preheat the oven to 256 degrees C.
  • Combine olives, bread crumbs, 2 teaspoons olive oil, garlic and rosemary in a food processor until finely chopped. Season with salt and black pepper.
  • Season the rack of lamb on all sides with 3/4 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Heat a medium skillet over high heat and add remaining 1 tablespoon of oil. When the oil is smoking, add the rack of lamb turning, brown well on all sides. Transfer to a plate and let cool slightly.
  • Spread the olive mixture evenly all over the lamb, pressing so the crumbs adhere to the meat. Place in a small roasting pan and bake for 12 to 15 minutes.
  • Arrange mashed potatoes, put the lamb chops on top, summer vegetables on the side and drizzle the sauce and little olive oil .(Tarun Deep Singh is Chandigarh based chef)

They say that there are no ugly women in the world, only lazy ones. However, beauty is only an elaborate definition of all the intricate works that go into substantiating it. And when it comes to detailing, one's biggest folly would be to skip out on nails. Sunny & Binny's Nail Bar in Sector 10, that focuses on pure nail art and care, offers an anti-aging manicure and pedicure apart from nail art and nail treatment.

Binny Kaur, co-promoter of the salon, says, "There are many studios that are focusing on beauty and wellbeing these days. These offer such services from head to toe, nail care being just a tiny link in these. Our studio, however, is a pure nail art outlet. We are providing our customers with nail extensions that will last for as many as five months and customised nail art."

She adds, "For those who do not want to get artificial tips added to natural nails, there is power polish available in 22 colours. Also, gel overlay facility is there for natural nails. The nail bar offers unisex services in nail care. There is a lot of focus on treatments for curing fungal problems, nail bite etc. Also, we use fimocans, dry flowers, diamondities, swarovski semi-precious stones, glitters and millers."

Sunny, the other co promoter, says, "Our nail art experts are trained by one of the best nail artistes in South East Asia, Jacqueline from Singapore. The products used are from international brands and are of top quality. We use long lasting acrylic and gel extensions on which beautiful nail art is done. Acrylic nails are longer lasting while gel nails are milder. We do a very professional refilling as and when it's required."

The studio is running an awareness session on Nail Art and Care too.

However, Sussanne’s sister and jewellery designer Farah Khan Ali vehemently denied the rumours and tweeted, “it's not true. They are not splitting. There will always be gossip mongers galore to add more masala.”

She added: “Celebrities will always be food for gossip. Don't believe everything you read. Its a pity the media lives off personal lives. Get a life!”

STEP UP: Roopal Tyagi

With a big question mark looming large on the safety of the women in our country, Zee TV will subtly spread awareness through its shows. Recently, it was Qubool Hai where Zoya (Surbhi Jyoti) stood for herself and slapped a man. In the coming week, Gunjan (Roopal Tyagi) of Sapne Suhane Ladakpan Ke will question the safety and security of the women in Mumbai.

The plot will show Gunjan returning to Mumbai after a long stay in Varanasi to surprise her husband Mayank (Ankit Gera) on his birthday. But as she visits the city after a while, she feels uneasy about her safety as she moves around. While she is heading back to the airport at night she is being stalked by two men. She reminisces about Mumbai being very safe at night where she roamed around with her friends at night. That peace and safety no longer existed. It disturbs her a lot and she decides to do something about it.

Says Roopal, "I think it's a great track and given the situation of women in the country, it is very relevant also. Gunjan comes to the conclusion that women need to learn self-defense for their own safety."

Big star on the small screen

Having a veteran actor like Shabana Azmi in any project makes it impressive and with her inclusion in the cast of Anil Kapoor's thriller 24, a lot of weight has been added to the show. Here she talks to us about her reasons for doing a TV show and more...
Shabana Azmi

Why did you choose to do this role?

I was approached by Anil Kapoor and I knew this project would be worth it. Then later, when I was told about my role and the entire show, I knew I had to do it. It's a cameo for but was a lot of fun.

How different is it working in a movie and a TV serial?

For an actor, any medium is about acting. Sure the audiences and their responses might be varied but I look upon every project from an actor's point of view. TV serials are different from films but 24 was shot like a film so it didn't feel any different to me.

Tell us about your rapport with Anil Kapoor.

He is a brilliant actor and a superb producer. He is relentless in his work and can keep on giving a shot till he gives the perfect take. Working with him was great.

Will you be doing stunts in the show?

No. I don't have any stunts. I play the head of ATU and Anil's boss in the show. The character is of a no non-sense woman who knows what she wants.
