Perched on the Periphery: Book Launch Event

Today, In the time that we live in,
We have women achieving great heights.

But the society that we come from,
Women usually derive their identity from someone else, from her roles as a mother, wife or a grandmother.
A women is a mother first and then maybe at a significant position in some company.



I came across one such tale of Nandita, a widow who is trying to figure a new meaning of her life beyond the roles that traditionally define her.

The story of Nandita is portrayed beautifully by Author, Jharna Banerji in her novel, Perched on the Periphery.

To celebrate the launch of the novel, an event was organised where she invited three of the remarkable women who have a lasting effect on the society.
The evening was about their journey, experiences, and stories that matter today!

One of them was Madhavi Kuckreja, Human Rights Activist and Founder of Sanatkada & Vanangana. Vanangana has worked with Muslims and dalit (untouchable) women to build their capacities against the violence…

Attraction for kids in fair: Hand Washing

Not only by providing top class products and a high success rate, they are also known for their out of the box ideas which tends to connect with masses.

They have come up with another initiative which has a very simple yet deep objective, making kids wash their hands at places such as fairs!
It was identified that kids who are playing around the fairs pick up a lot of gems which they carry with themselves the whole day, may also use the dirty hands to eat.


To counter this issue, they chose an activity where they would make the wash happen in a fun way, I like to call it: Bubble Wash!

Dettol created a soapy solution with the power of Dettol Handwash. This solvent would be blown and when the kids would burst these bubbles, the soapy solution will stick to their hands. The dettol volunteers would then help them wash their hands!

Cafe Public Connection, CP - Review

Cafe Public Connections is another success under Big Fish Ventures!

I totally loved this part of the cafe as it aptly compliments the name!


Widely spread with differently theme private areas like Hollywood, Sports, Retro, Big Boy, Industrial and dim lighted; this place is light on pockets and high on taste.

PANEER TIKKA

Soft and luscious pieces of paneer, tossed between capsicum and onion.

Not that this dish made me a fan, but the spices in it dominated the taste of mushrooms and overall gave a nice kick. Really close to Chilli Chicken!

Right from the entrance to the last stall in the venue; positive vibes flows everywhere along with aromas of delicious food, with super pretty installations.


The first stall that we stopped at was
The Taj.

Fish and Chips, along with Banoffee Pie in a combo.
The insides of the fish was really soft, and really bland.
Whereas the Banoffee Pie was pretty good, the right fruity taste of the bananas and the cream tasted just right.

Brown Box
They had a piece of their delicacies for tasting, on the basis on which we ordered the Chocolate Brownie. A round shaped brownie with little chocolate chunks which tasted like choco chips. Though, …

Has Justice been served? - Talvar Movie Review

One of the most controversial cases of India, The 2008 - Aarushi Talwar Murder Case was one of those cases which left the entire nation in trauma.

This double homicide in which a 14 year old girl, Aarushi and the servant, Hemraj were found dead in a flat in Noida, raised numerous questions, doubts, and a lot many theories which remained unattended to even after the final verdict was held by the Court.

We needed a brief of all the evidences, investigations about the case to come up to a conclusion for ourselves. To settle this case in our heads, once and for all.
Director Meghna Gulzar understood this and came up with Talvar; a fictional dramatization of true life events revolving around the case.

Original facts and observation were carved out, shot and presented in such a way that it makes the viewer Sherlock Holm…
