Foot note
High-heeled sandals have come down from the pedestal to pave the way for Kolhapuris, shoes, slippers, mojris, loafers…on the ramp

Models in slippers at Nishka Lulla’s show Perched on six inches of heels, fashion insisted on to be taken seriously.

Filmy keeda!
Divya Dutta I think I was born filmy…or maybe I lived on Bollywood movies. I was five when I went to Delhi to live with my three aunts — my dad's sisters.

Set the grip
Getting a good grip on the club is the most important component in learning the game. The hands are your only connection to the club and a faulty grip leads to loss or lack of control on the club face, which leads to both direction and distance issues. Changing a grip is probably the most difficult part of swing correction and lots of teaching professionals try to bypass this, and change some other component of the swing to compensate for the problems arising out of a faulty grip. Changing a grip is as hard as changing the way you hold a pen. One has to unlearn the old habit and create a new one, which takes time and can be quite frustrating.
