The Sub-Text

Good call going with those oversized cuffs, Shreyas Navare. Wheeling R.K. Laxman on a tour of your illustrations was reason enough for sweaty palms. Having him pause to actually read into them should have been just cause for the IIT-schooled part-time cartoonist’s penhand to waver. A biting comment at this point? Overkill? Oh boy, You said it.

Bearing Strait

A silk shirt ought never to look as straight-laced as it does on Manmohan at the 18th India-ASEAN conclave in Cambodia. A positively arrestinged look. Just call it the summit’s trough.

The Booster Seat

The first birthday present from daddy, a red Mini Cooper S, may have been a tad premature. Aradhya won’t be pulling them Italian Job-style getaways from the paparazzi for another 17 years yet. And even then, in Mumbai traffic? Fuggedaboutit, Mini-B.  

Getting A Leg Up

For someone so refreshingly generous with both swell and swill, Amisha Patel’s star faded fast. A mag cover and five films on tap, the “hotest” actress looks to be waxing again.

  • Huma Qureshi is a natural on the red carpet of the Berlinale’s Potsdam Theatre—not a glimpse of the extra preening or pouts Bollywood dames save for such occasions. Huma, seen with actor Manish Dayal, was there for the premiere of Gurinder Chadha’s Viceroy’s House. 
  • He left the White House in charge of a trumpet and exchanged Air Force One for a kiteboard without batting an eye. That’s how cool Barack Obama is. At the Virgin Islands, Obama ceded aquatic control to billionaire Richard Branson.
  • You don’t want to museumise Virat Kohli just yet! But Boria Majumdar’s sports shrine in Cal has a lot of bric-a-brac: Sachin’s ‘100th 100’ gloves, Messi’s boots etc.  We want David Shepherd’s Triple Nelson hop!
  • It’s 25 years since A. R. Rahman’s Chinna, Chinna Asai first held his fans spellbound. Now his sister Isshrath Quadhre is all set to make music for the Hollywood movie Lake of Fire. Jai Ho to her.
