The scene: the Rajasthan Fashion Week at Jaipur. Dressed as loudly as humanly possible, actors Akshay and Sonakshi prance round each other, promoting a new film to a star-struck audience. At times, it seems the ill-bred genie let out by Dabangg will never be bottled.

For His Holiness

The one religious shrine universally respected for being a centuries-long symbol of communal amity, the dargah of Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti at Ajmer Sharif, saw yet another high-profile oblational obeisance when Union minister Kapil Sibal offered prayers, a chadar, and released a stamp on the 800th Urs of the Sufi saint.
