Saurabh Jain as Lord Krishna An epic task
Two decades and three versions later, people still swear by the original on-screen edition of the epic, Mahabharat. Its spot-on casting, fluid screenplay, superb performances…everything they say was so perfect that it is almost impossible to match. Nidhi Yasha understood the magnanimity of the challenge and realised that nothing short of slogging at the task in hand would suffice. In the pursuit to excel on her part, of designing costumes and jewellery for the new Mahabharat that went on air this month on Star Plus, she delved into literature, visited ancient temples and referred to Raja Ravi Verma's artwork.

Puneet Issar Power dressing
The makers of Mahabharat are often quoted as saying that this series is for the present generation, who missed the charm of the BR Chopra's magic. Elaborate sets, picturesque sceneries and add to that costumes and jewellery of actors, targeted viewers have all to gain and nothing to lose.

Thank god for small blessings
Sometimes we take life for granted—cribbing, fussing, fighting and stressing. Not our fault. Times are tough and it's not easy to survive in today's competitive world. But when you see people suffering, you realise how fortunate you are and how you should be grateful for leading a normal life.

Designs on men
Her decision to focus on menswear was backed by a thorough survey in Chandigarh. While a number of boutiques and women designer studios dot the map of Chandigarh, there is hardly anyone catering to men's wardrobe needs. Hence, Amanjot Bajwa decided to design sherwanis, Nehru jackets, sadris, coats, overcoats and three-piece suites.

Twist in the tale
With the view of bringing something different to the platter through their up andRimmi Srivastava & Rashmi Singh coming show, Raavi, channel Big Magic has come up with a new concept, wherein Raavi, the girl child, is made to dress like a boy by her mother. Wondering why? Rashmi Singh, who essays the role of Raavi's mother, explains the plot as she says, "The story of this television show is unlike any other that one has ever seen. I essay the role of Raavi's mother, whose husband has been murdered by a money grubbing crook, Shamsher, who conspires to take over the entire property of the family. However, according to the grandfather's will my husband's son will be entitled to the property, else it could be taken over by Shamsher. That is the reason, why I as Raavi's mother, dresses her up as a boy (Ravinder)."

Par Excellence
The influence of the path
The path of the stroke also influences the direction of the ball but has a less significant role as compared to the position of the putter face. The effect of the path is approximately 20 per cent. Therefore if a putter face is one degree open at impact the path would have to be five degrees out to in to result in a ball starting straight. But this would put side spin on the ball causing it to drift to the right (for right handed golfers).

Ruffled the wrong way
While Drashti Dhami claims to be single, she was rumoured to be linked up with her choreographer, Salman Yusuff Khan. Also, her alleged boyfriend, Neeraj Khemka, was spotted during the finale of Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa. Apparently, Drashti's skimpy clothes and sexy dance moves have irked Neeraj’s parents and led to a tiff between the two lovers, but they seem to have patched up now.
