Fixed Match, Smash Hit

Even sceptics of marriages made in heaven see a grand design in the union of IPL chief Rajiv Shukla’s nephew Abhinav with T-series’s Aashima Kumar. The momentousness blinds us to Kajol’s toga. Ahhhh fine, we admit to wilful blindness.

Down The Peking Order

‘He isn’t either a Shih Tzu or a Pekingese, Akki’ Farzana Contractor seems to say. ‘He’s a Lhasa Apso.’ An honest mistake that. So Khiladi man needn’t look so chastised. Mollification was to be found at the UpperCrust Food Show ’12 spread. ‘Haanji, lots of Chinese fare on the menu.’

That Last Article Of Faith

Let’s see here. Everyone’s got their keshes and their kirpans. We have spotted a kadha or two. And we’ll take them at their word on the kangas and kachehras. All that’s missing at Amritsar’s International Turban Pride 2012 Show are the Kaurs.

Got Milk For Those Cookies?

After that Playboy call-up, Sherlyn Chopra knew a bar had been set. Shedding clothes needed to be tasteful now. Bring Xmas cheer to street kids? That would show Santa she’d been ‘an awful good girl’. If he ain’t hurrying down that chimney yet, we’ll help fill her stockings.

  • 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.
