And as they say, once the gerrari gets stuck, there is no way it would move easily! Gerrari Offroaders' Club from Chandigarh is stuck on winning the first edition of the Rainforest Challenge India (RFC) to be held in Goa from August 8-14.

Other side of the story
It is a world of animals and fairies, jungles and castles, gnomes and dwarfs, elves and clowns. Hopping onto the world of children's stories requires imagination. Where the tiger could piggy back ride to a class room and be back in his den. Where the grass and clouds could switch places and rabbits and carrots could exchange colours.

Why woman centric?
Bollywood actress Rani Mukerji thinks one should stop categorising films as male and female centric. "I think this term woman-centric is a bit strange because we don't call normal films male-centric. I think we should stop calling a film as male or female centric, it should be a good or a bad film," Rani said at the promotional event of her upcoming film Mardaani.

Putting — start the ball on the intended line
As mentioned in the previous article, good putting has three basic ingredients - getting the ball rolling as soon as possible on the intended line with the correct speed. Getting the ball to start on the intended line depends on the position of the face at impact, the path of the putter and the centeredness of strike. The position of the face and the centeredness of strike are more important as compared to the path.

Gown syndrome
There's blue, orange, green, red, white, pink and of course black. And why not? We need all the colours to suit every occasion and body type. Gowns might not be an Indian silhouette, but they suit the Indian body type just fine. "Indian women are heavy on the bosom and at the bottom, and these areas are not hidden very well in jeans or skirts. Gowns easily hide all the body flaws, which is why I promote them," shares designer Priyanka Khosla, while showcasing all the possible types displayed on racks. "I started with gowns because the ones already available in the market were not up to the mark…we have bridal gowns with trails, semi-formal gowns that are as wearable as a maxi, there are some with all the different cuts for the kitties."

Why did you choose this show?
The role was interesting and not a negative one, which I have done enough in the past. I play the mother-in-law Durga Devi aka DD, who has hardened over the years struggling to reach the top and is condescending towards the middle class. She is strict and arrogant, but not negative. She rules the house like a man would.
