Back The Trend
With backless dresses and gowns back in vogue now, many are making a bold style statement these days. Bareback, sheer back and low-back — the options being explored by fashionistas are numerous. Backless dresses have a flattering fit, making them a popular choice among the younger lot. “This trend, which was commonly seen in movies in the 70s and 80s, is now being flaunted with stoles and other add-ons in style,” says Pavi Poovappa, a model. She adds that backless dresses...

A new addition to the list of eateries in Koramangala is ‘Tobey’, that serves a variety of breakfast options and snacks. Each of the dishes at the restaurant is an old-time favourite, said to have been passed down over generations.

They believe in retaining the original charm of each dish while adding a modern touch to it. The place has a typical colonial setup, resembling...
Wrapped In Exotic Flavours

The first outlet was in Jayanagar with just one staff member. Now they have grown exponentially and there are 13 outlets across the city...
Culinary Potpourri
Sometimes, you may be in the mood to eat a little more than you normally do, perhaps a nice compact spread, but still not a full-fledged heavy buffet that fills you right uptil the brim. If that’s what’s on your mind, a good place to head to is ‘Subz’ in Jayanagar.The vegetarian restaurant serves reasonably priced North Indian fare along with some South Indian dishes. It has been around for quite sometimes and those in and around the area frequent it often.Open for...

Thinking 'a'head
A traumatic head injury can have several physical and psychological effects. Some signs or symptoms may appear immediately after the traumatic event, while others may appear days or weeks later. The terms “mild”, “moderate” and “severe" are used to describe the effect of the injury on brain function. A mild injury to the brain is still a serious one that requires prompt attention and an accurate diagnosis. Listed below are the different kinds of head...
Are Statin Side Effects Real?
Statins, the widely used cholesterol-lowering drugs, have well-known side effects, but some of the most common may be caused more by psychological factors than by the drugs themselves.Researchers looked at more than 10,000 patients who had been randomly assigned to take either atorvastatin (Lipitor) or a placebo. They tracked their reports of more than two dozen different side effects over an average of more than three years. Those taking statins reported slightly more renal and urinary side...
Time To Breathe Easy
Asthma is a chronic inflammatory disease of the airways of the lungs. Cigarette smoking can be dangerous for asthma patients, as tobacco smoke is a powerful trigger of asthma symptoms. In asthma, allergic inflammation of the bronchial tubes increases mucus production, leading to cough and phlegm. In long-term cigarette smokers, chronic inhalation of smoke from burning tobacco also stimulates the mucous glands in the bronchial tubes to make excess mucus, giving rise to daily cough with...
Red Meat Tied To 9 Diseases
The more red meat you eat, the greater your risk of dying from one of nine diseases, according to a new report.Researchers studied more than 536,000 men and women between ages 50 to 71, tracking their diet and health for an average of 16 years. They recorded intake of total meat, processed and unprocessed red meat (beef, lamb and pork), and white meat (poultry and fish).Compared with the one-fifth of people who ate the least red meat, the one-fifth who ate the most had a 26% increased risk of...
Live A Life Of Abundance
It was the year 1850. Europe’s railways was expanding rapidly and there was an urgent need for building bridges. This called for the availability of skilled labour at construction sites, increasing the expenditure of projects. At that time, a fresh engineer from the Central School of Engineering in Paris, with no high credentials to boast of, was working for a railway construction company. Seeing the quandary in which his superiors were placed, the young man realised that coming up with...

When The Quiet Designer Decided To Get Loud
A  new flag hangs above Mercer Street, announcing a new shop: Nili Lotan. To which many may ask: Who? The Israeli designer doesn’t stage fashion shows. She doesn’t shoot ad campaigns or pay for them to run in magazines, and she doesn’t spend a lot of time kissing up to the people who run them, who decide which clothes to feature and which to forget. Her clothes aren’t flashy or splashy: They are neutral, well considered, the sort of thing those magazines like to...
Next After Birth...
The government of India termed it as a ‘humble gift’ to women. But this particular gift (horse) needs to be looked in the mouth. And thoroughly. The Maternity Benefit (Amendment) Act 2016 came into force from April 2017. The Act mandates maternity leave of 26 weeks (an extension from the previous 12 weeks), provision of crèche by companies with more than 50 employees, and leave up to 12 weeks for women adopting children below three months. At first glance, this appears to...

Time To Pack Your Bags, Get, Set, Go!
Nothing can be as liberating as being able to pack your bags and take off on a trip spontaneously without having to depend and plan around other people’s schedules. This is precisely one of the reasons why solo travel has taken off in a big way. While it may seem that the solo travel segment is dominated by men, it is indeed a revelation to note that this growing market is actually fuelled by the increasing number of women, whether young, old, single or married who are indulging in solo...
They're Both The Same, You Know
The D-Day was fast approaching and I started out early in the morning to an exclusive baby store to shop for my little one who was to arrive soon. Browsing through the store, I was picking up things, from nappies to rattles, when the salesman accosted me, “Ma’am, are you shopping for a girl or a boy?” The question rattled me as I hit back, “Does it matter?” Pat come his response: “Yes ma’am, if it’s a girl, we have the pinks and the pastel...

Comedy In Khaki

As ACP Surya, Ganesh makes the most of his vardi, misusing his position and power. Estranged from honest dad DGP Agni, he tries to put him ill at ease...
