A Drink Of The Good Stuff

Full circle to another round of the Outlook Traveller Awards, we look on in brot­herly approval as our sister magazine toasts another year in the great outd­oors. Was there an open bar? We know not. Our founder editor Vinod Mehta would.

Yu Loves Me, Yeah Yeah Yeah

So how exactly does a farmer's daughter from Manchuria win over inner Mongolia? The perfect cheekbones and a folksy sin­ging voice fetched China's Yu Wenxia the Miss World crown in Ordos city ’12. Here, the 23-year-old brings more of the same to a Mumbai NGO.

The Actor Of His Own Ideal

“I can just see it now,” Subhash Ghai seems to say. “A buddy-cop movie in the Rush Hour mould with some Lethal Weapon tossed in. Mel Aamir, you’ll be the brooding one quoting Nietzsche after each kill. Sallu, you'll quip and squint. The belt shuffle's fine too.”

  • 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.
