Who doesn't like a Sunday? The after-party lazy morning that promises to be everything the week wasn't. From my close to 2000 Sundays spent on Mother Earth, I have come to the conclusion that the only...
I believe that half the fun in life comes from constantly challenging yourself and trying out new things. But recently, I surprised even myself when I agreed to test the IO Walk, a self-balancing board that seemed to represent everything I feared most. Seemingly unstable, highly sporty, with reports of similar brands self-combusting... these were boards that I'd seen only reckless 12-year-olds trying out at Mumbai's Marine Drive.
Its name is reminiscent of the quintessential Bawaji. Its easy-eating Irani-Cafe-meets-Parsi-home menu has some cleverly named drinks and delicious dishes.

Never change, Ranveer Singh. The irrepressible, young Bollywood star has a penchant for doing whatever he concocts in that crazy mind of his. In an industry where most stars are hidden behind a layer...
Call it Classic, Old Skool or by any other name, Retro never goes out of style. Fads may come and go like ballet skirts and bushy beards, but things people have grown up with will always remain close to their hearts. The guys at Radio Bar in Bandra seem to understand this very well.
Among the great features, I quite like the Like button. It would be nice to have it in real life and not respond just press it diplomatically.
Switzerland just earned the title of the World's Happiest Country in this year's World Happiness index. And the Swiss resort town of St Moritz is celebrating 150 years of existence this year. Two compelling reasons to find out what all the fuss is about!
