Ruby Dhalla Mind that matters
Canadian politician Ruby Dhalla has many dimensions to her personality and she shines through them all
If you probably meet her without any back up of her credentials, there is no way you could guess that she could be a politician. A leading model or a super model is what would make of her to be, certainly at the first glimpse.

Jassi Gill and Babbal Rai Joint venture
If there is one thing that can get the Punjabis together after a brawl 'or a fight in the university campus,' it is the live shows, the newer version of akharaas. The ever-green Gurdas Maan would and still enigmatically binds the audience of thousands with his electrifying performance; Jazzy B can set the stage on fire single-handedly. And then we gradually see from single performers to a group or let's just say a band of popular Punjabi singers performing.

She has already written Sunrays For Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday....

A direct take
Coffee Season 4
I know that Shah Rukh Khan is not on the season yet but he is a big part of my what if he is not there on the show? SRK, Aditya Chopra and my father along with Yash Ji have made me what I am. I will happily sweep the floors of YRF or Red Chillies if needed. They know how much I love them.

Ranveer, Deepika are just friends
Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone are painting the town red with their love but the couple is not ready to admit their relationship in public at this moment.

Special importance
Deepika holds a special significance in my life. She is somebody I respect and admire a lot, somebody whom I have grown close to. She is an awesome person, she is somebody for whom I have great amount of admiration.

Spot it out
Moles on the skin are common occurrence; nearly everyone has at least a few. As per its location, colour and size in some people a mole may add to the beauty while in others it tends to appear ugly. The moles become worrisome when they suddenly enlarge in size or rapidly increase in number.

Shooting star
When it comes to business, it is not just the quality of the product or the service that matters, but also the marketing of the same. And Amit Sood of Roshan Studios, Sector 8, Panchkula, understands the seriousness of his trade—photography, since what they make is more than art, and what they sell is definitely more than an idea.

The carrot crusade!
My crusade to feed my kids all possible vegetables was “mission impossible” indeed! It led me to narrate a lot of encouraging stories to them about the goodness of greens. My preachings about carrots being good for eyesight were being taken rather seriously. When we grate, cook and ‘bhuno’ our carrots into a gaajar halwa, let’s not fool ourselves we're deriving much nutrition from the carrots in there. Even a carrot cake is not exactly a health food, but it’s certainly less cooked than the former. The trade mark spicy taste comes from the use of cinnamon powder. Raisins and walnuts are delightful but optional.
