Who's The Best Hack Of Us All?

Heard that old saying—“there can be too much of a good thing”? Well, Indian journalism is getting there in a hurry. With there being too much of it—newspapers, magazines, TV channels—this was coming. Now we have the Ramnath Goenka Excellence in Journalism Awards launched by the Indian Express group. Touted as the Pulitzers of Indian journalism, these awards were handed out on Wednesday to those who deserved them. Wonder what the others did? Planned a sting operation on the awards, we guess.

The Soldier Reads

It took Kiran Nagarkar nine years to write God’s Little Soldier—a liberal Muslim boy’s tryst with religious orthodoxy. Yet Aamir Khan stole the show at the Delhi launch. Unlike Akshay Kumar who also dropped in for a book launch recently, Aamir had read this book. Last October, he was also seen at the launch of Vikram Seth’s Two Lives.

The Dye Is Cast

Body paint or strategic cover? What will the designers think up next? Here’s Tania Zaetta in Neeta Bhargava’s more-paint-less-fabric number at the WIFW.

Meet the Parents

Lea, Rhea, Congratulations! Little Aiyana is already a few weeks old and dad hasn’t stopped taking her picture. Well, changing diapers and staying up nights will be a new ball game all together. But it’s advantage parents. Will she wield the tennis racket first or get her fundas of life right? We’ll wait and see. Happy parenting!

Quiz
Brazil’s Rio de Janeiro is hosting the 31st Olympic Games from August 5 to 21. This is the first Olympics being held in South America and is going on even as a majority Brazilians are unhappy with their rulers. Here’s a quiz on some random Olympic facts and related trivia.
QUIZ STARTED ON: Aug 11, 2016
  • We see him at IPL matches, or at the nets, rolling an arm over, but it’s a revelation to see Arjun Tendulkar towering over Sachin and Anjali at a Mukesh Ambani party. When did he  grow so tall? Ask that question to Father Time, and wait pat­iently for an answer.
  • Not only has the striking Gigi Hadid, dressed in curls and attitude, mounted a steed boldly, she also piled on hum­our at a music awards at the expense of Melania Trump. Just as taste, good or bad, shows who you are, the subjects of one’s barbs are equally revelatory. 
  • It’s possibly an ersatz legend, but that’s what the beauteous Twinkle Khanna is peddling these days. It was the release of her book,  The Legend of Lakshmi Prasad, and lining up for her in solidarity were Ranbir, Alia, Sha­­bana Azmi and many more.
  • The Bachchan family runs on the Big B’s steam. The fairy atm­osphere at a Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla show was not­able not for Shweta Nanda being the  sho­­­­­­w­­stopper, or for Abhishek or Jaya’s presence, but for that man with the camera.
