10+ Female-Lead Films That You Should Not Miss In 2018

2017, was a good year for women in films.

Here’s What These Home Bakers From Bangalore Are Whipping Up This Christmas

We are living in times where most people prefer home bakers over a bakery or a café (when it comes to baked goods, of course), especially when it’s Christmas. Why you ask? First, the teats have a homely feel to them with no added preservatives. Second, it comes with a lot of customisation options, which is great. And third, it might be more affordable, and the fact that the treats are made to order is surety that they are a 100 per cent fresh. With the obvious out of the way, […]

The fragile yet beautiful human relationships that tend to bind us sometimes bring trials and tribulations of their own, which tests our resolve in trying to mend these problems.

Ballsy solo projects are not a new thing for Mumbai-based lifestyle photographer Monisha Ajgaonkar. The last time we spoke to her for something similar was when she had just finished shooting her first solo project Unmasked—a series of vivid pictures that spoke about denial of one’s sexual orientation. That was somewhere in 2015. It’s 2017, and Ajgaonkar is back with something similar, this time in video format. Love. No Boundaries, is a two-minute short film that voices the idea of acceptance of the LGBTQ community in India. It artistically portrays that […]

Well-Known Brands That Don’t Place A Logo On Their Products

According to a report by Goldman Sachs, (in 2015) millennials prefer clothing without labels or logos. In some way, it’s more about the product. Labels and logos in 2017 have become secondary. On that note, here are a few companies that believe more in the product and less on the logo. Bottega Veneta The no logo reveal for this iconic brand started in 2001 when the Gucci Group bought the company and hired a new creative director, German-born Tomas Maier, who removed all the labels and went back to the brand’s […]

Interestingly, she has added a girl in the scenarios, and as […]

Sriracha—A New Pan-Asian Restaurant Where Food Meets Art

We start this one, with a question. “How many Pan-Asian restaurants are there in Bangalore?” 3000, 4000? And how many amongst them would you swear by? 10, 20? You might be thinking where are we going with this, but, this is the exact question that popped into our heads where we booked a cab to get to Sriracha—a new contemporary Pan-Asian restaurant at UB City serving select delicacies from places like Thailand, Hong Kong, Indonesia and Singapore. “Will this space be any good?” we thought, (given that six out of […]

Diah by MaNa, a quirky, flat-packed paper LED light company, based out of Singapore, started as a fun little project that kept evolving as the weeks went by until designer Mandara Nagaraj and inventor Sid Butalia saw that the product answered to an evident gap in the market, as far as portable lights are concerned.
