|Add some desi-girl vibrancy to your wardrobe this season|
The decision to dress Deepika entirely in gaghra-cholis may have been based on authenticity but, all of a sudden, the Gujrati signature costume has never seemed more desirable. Our tailors, bodies and sensibilities may not be able to cope with the sexy, backless cholis Leela wears in the movie but, with less revealing blouses, this is a trend that is going to have wings.

Books have been my passion, my solace, my favourite pastime and my indulgence for as long as I can remember.
I love sharing great books and am always hunting down books that I've lent to one friend or another. These are some favourites from my bookshelf - books that I owe many pleasurable hours. These are not my top 5 books of any genre but they all have gripping stories and are well written. I hope you enjoy them as much I did.
