The Wizard In Oz

The land down under served as a school of hard knocks for the li’l master—as the licks from his first and final campaigns bear out. Soft diplomacy, in the shape of the Order of Australia medal, may heal them welts some. Pinch of salt: rival for batting godhood Brian Lara beat him to it in 2009.

And a 36, Forever

A limited edition set of Ulysse Nardin watches each honouring one of Sunny Gavaskar’s 34 Test centuries; each engraved with the name of the city he scored it in? A capital idea. The WI tours will stand the test of time; that ODI ton in Nagpur stands alone.

Birthday Wish

No word yet if Naomi Campbell’s 50th birthday bash for Russian billionaire bf Vladislav Doronin in Rajasthan will double as betrothal celebration—plausible, since the one he hosted in the French Riviera for her 40th did not. This one has Diana Ross, is thought to have an elephant polo match and lal maas. Really, how can magic not happen?

Misconception

It’s hard to see the rationale behind this ‘concept gown’ by Gavin Miguel. Kangna Ranaut ought to have left it exactly where she found it... the foot of the paper shredder. But hey, that’s just us. Looking more ragdoll than showstopper at this Blender’s Pride gala, Kang appears to concur.

  • Melanie Hamrick eschews the traditional tutu for an unusual garment for her part in The Swan Lake, but that is not the point. It’s that the 29-year-old ballerina is 72-year-old veteran rockstar Mick Jagger’s latest girlfriend. The couple are expecting a child—Jagger’s eighth. Well done, man! You are an inspiration.
  • In Jaipur Palace was held the circuitous, ritual-heavy (‘col­­o­­ur­ful’) coming-of-age celebrations of the titular maharaja, Pad­manabh Singh, a keen polo player and a student in England.
  • Which PM worth his salt would come out in open support in a gay pride march? Canada’s warm, intelligent, popular, handsome, popinjay of a prime minister was in his elements at a pride in Tor­o­nto. And he made selfie-­takers and hand-shakers happy.
  • No, this is not a dignified lady diplomat parlaying with Dalai Lama. It’s Lady Gaga, in her demurest avatar, apparently discussing yoga. While you marvel, the Chinese seethe with anger, adding one name to a list that bothers nobody.
