A knotted affair
Navjot Singh Sidhu If there is one thing among a few others that Navjot Singh Sidhu takes very seriously, it's his dressing up. A part of his style consciousness roots from his being part of the glamour industry and rest from his love affair with fashion. For people, who question the austerity trait of a politician, he rightfully justifies, "Fine feather make fine birds. Only when one feels good, one can work better." So, he picks up suits that has label of Canali sewn at the seams and feels humble in an IWC and Franck Muller watches. The other accessory he is very particular about is his scarves, strictly Hermes.

Obviously with the passage of time this goes on adding up. As few of these pounds stick around, they make us a little heavier every year. What is even worse is that it seems to be very hard to lose these extra winter pounds. Why does this happen and what can we do?
