Under the Confluence

Yes, that double dip Anil Ambani looks about ready for ought to get him out of the deep end. Kokilaben knows there's still nectar enough in this pitcher to pull that off. Preity does not seem as confident. Her glass has been half-empty for a while.

Delhi Is Not Far

The night train from Deoli just doesn't hold the same lusty appeal it once did, eh, Mr Bond? We und­erstand. A warm bed and full inkwell in Kasauli trumps having to peddle Hancocks to the boo­kless in Delhi. The blank pages beckon.
