HoneymoonsWith the marriage and reception party (sometimes an unending stream of them) over, its time to actually spend sometime together as a couple. To embark on the journey of discovery. Well, what better way to just that than to go far away from the madding crowd into the lap of nature and let magic of togetherness evolve. You’re right we’re talking about a honeymoon.

The ancients were not only aware of this, they were even more adventurous. In fact, historians believe that the origin of the word honeymoon originated from the honey based drink called Mede. The wedded couple who would spend the first month of their wedded life in seclusion would savour and experience the magic of the magical Mede.

A lot of us envision a honeymoon to be a vacation in a beautiful locale, with one’s life partner. But, actually speaking a honeymoon is much more than a holiday. It is a time to bond and prepare to set out on a life long journey as a couple. It is also probably a time to renew your romance or rather give it a different dimension. If all that seems too much on a philosophical level, then this might seem like a more attainable and acceptable definition. It is a time for rest and relaxation after the rigors of marriage are over and make sense of why you got into it at all.

Discover the fine art of drinking wineDrinking, in any culture is a rule-governed activity, fenced with prescriptions and norms concerning who may drink how much of what, when, where, with whom, in what manner and with what effects.

Today however, because of the affluence of the Indian middle class and the growing presence of MNC’s , social drinking is fast gaining popularity. Among the different alcoholic drinks that are popular, wine is the choice of the sophisticated. This sentiment was best expressed by Ernest Hemmingway who said, “Wine is the most civilized thing in the world.” It probably won’t be an overstatement to say that fine wines have now become an integral part of entertainment both in the corporate and business world. In fact, your knowledge on the subject could earn you an edge over your competitor in the office.

Drinking wine is a manifold experience. It is an art of sorts. The first step is choosing the wine. Step two involves, pairing it with the right food. Step three is matching it with the occasion. Step four is all about serving the wine.

Second chances: Making them workThere is a wonderful line that Saif Ali Khan keeps saying from time to time in the wonderful film ‘Hum Tum’ based on the battle of the sexes – ‘Zindagi bahut lambi hai…(life is very long)’. Whether or not one agrees with him, the fact is that life often gives us much more than a single opportunity to prove how loving, sincere, steadfast and trustworthy we can be. That is, we do get the chance to prove these qualities in a relationship, at some time or the other.
 
Elizabeth Taylor’s record of eight (or is it nine) husbands may be hard to beat yet, in good old India, but the rapid pace of change, and the growing economic independence of women is bringing more and more relationships to breaking point, thus putting more people in circulation who are seeking to overcome the hurt of a failed marriage with the success of another. “I just saw no point continuing to pretend that I was happy, when I had been only miserable for a decade and more,” says Shreya, who has walked out on her husband of eighteen years. “It seemed absurd to be living life to make society happy, when I was not even sure whether this was my only life, or whether I would get another chance, not to repeat my mistakes!”

The Party's here tonight!!!“We like to work hard and party hard,” says Yogesh, a software engineer. This is a sentiment which seems to be echoed by generation next. But, whatever be one’s take on entertainment, a good time with good friends and good food along with some superb music is undeniably the best way to celebrate. Well, come December and the party season is on. Though a lot of people are now looking at event management companies for hosting that perfect party, the joy of organizing one yourself is immeasurable. Besides, just getting a professional to organize the party for you does not mean that you have nothing further to do as a host. What it actually does is just takes the worry of logistics off your head. Let’s take a closer look at what goes into organizing a successful party. Though it might not seem that apparent yet, making a party a success requires a lot of careful planning. And the joy of organizing a party that lingers in the memory of both the host/hostess and the guests is beyond compare..

Dupattas - Style StatementsHave you seen the way a really attractive woman can sometimes leave or enter a room? With a swish, a swirl, a blur of beautiful dupatta… That colourful swathe of cloth thrown around the shoulders can sometimes be the most important element in a salwar-kameez or churidar-kurta ensemble. Whether it is studded with Swarovski crystals, or is humble Bandhini, plain cotton, or a strip of crushed golden tissue, dupattas do add a certain something to the whole look of an ethnic ensemble.
 
In the 50s and 60s, the dupatta, referred to more commonly as a ‘chunni’ or ‘chunri’ was a mere strip of georgette or chiffon, matched to the exact colour of the kurta or salwar, to the nth degree. Heroines with bouffant hairdos, tight kurtas and trailing wisps of georgette, pranced across the Hindi screen, be it Asha Parekh or Sharmila Tagore, Kalpana or Sadhana, pursued by heroes who sang ‘Lal chhadi, maidan khadi…’ and other such stuff. Although the dupatta then was such a universal element of a feminine wardrobe, it was not given so much importance as the main dress. Plain colours, pastel shades – that seemed to be the main avatar of the 60s dupatta.
