Circus: A Fundoo Place

Want to take your kids out for a fun lunch on a lovely winter afternoon? Then a well-loved dining bar from South Extension, Circus, has just opened doors at our favourite eating space Cyberhub. Nothing about this place is boring, with its spunky interiors and a large clown made of stained glass behind the bar, to masked waiters, and a fun street food menu with healthy options. Mr. Rajvir, the manager, greeted us with some innovative beverages. We chose, Joker no. 9 which had mandarins, and a Masala Gang-which came in flavours like anaardana, raam laddoo, kala khatta etc....

Secret Superstar-Film Review

#SecretSuperstar This review is as timely as yesterday’s newspaper. Most of us have either seen the movie already or are biding our time till Amazon prime delivers. AK productions have hit upon a winning formula – Tell stirring stories of insuppressible talents from the hinterland, who make it against all odds. Throw in some angst like domestic violence, dyslexia or parochial mindsets. Add in an utterly gooey hearted mom and a wonky dad. Tug at the heartstrings of audience, with the family’s conflicts and trauma. Show them succeed. Voila, You have your hit movie ready. ( e.g. Taare Zameen Par, Dangal and the...

Zen in a Cup from Teamonk Global

There’s something about a good cup of tea, it comforts and invigorates at the same time.  A perfect start to the morning or cosy solace after a long, tiring day is what my cuppa of green tea does for me. I keep experimenting with different brands and kinds of tea so I was naturally curious about Teamonk Global’s Sei White Tea. Sei means purity in Zen philosophy and reflects order and cleanliness in the physical and spiritual world.  According to Teamonk Global, “Our white tea from the Nilgiris is most befitting of this name due to its subtle flavour...

Rain, Slides and Biryani

On a rainy afternoon if you are looking to get wet, what better way than sliding down into pools from heart-thumping heights. Yes, I’m talking about the water park at Appu Ghar in Gurgaon. Last Friday as it poured buckets, I fished out an umbrella and headed for Appu Ghar. I thought I was the one with the smart idea, but it turns out that a lot many in Gurgaon had the same idea too. But I didn’t dunk myself in the ‘Lazy River’ or  “Monsoon Mania’ (the rain was already doing that for me), instead, I opted to...
