John Players has always been associated with being the retail leaders in the Indian menswear market. Keeping up with their promise of introducing latest international trends to the Indian consumers, John Players has recently launched their Spring Summer Collection SS’17 for men, which is an amalgamation of style for all and intense inclusion of various prints and colour palette; catering to all. The collection has been picked up from the international runways, customised for the Indian body type and offers a diverse categorical sub-catalogue venturing into various style-requirements that Indian men require on a daily basis. John Players 2017 collection has been inspired by travel attributes, offering spunky motifs and prints that go well with all men. The colour scheme runs through hues of green, yellow, red and blue among other basic tones like B&W and browns. What I really liked about the collection was that John Players designers believe that prints are meant for all, hence offering a variety of prints on shirts like floral patterns, madras checks and embroidered butta motif; to celebrate style for those men who love experimenting yet looking suave. Me along with my friend Rahul Makkar of FitFoodiesMantra recently visited John Players Lajpat Nagar store to check out the collection in person and style Rahul in three of the mix-matched looks. Rahul, belonging to the hospitality industry, understands the necessity of looking presentable at all times. But he also understands the dilemma of being comfortable yet being confident in whatever men wear. Hence, his take on the collection is that the range offers a great fit, the fabrics used are apt for the Indian weather conditions and the choice of picking from a line of styles and colour palettes is absolutely remarkable. To celebrate the new launch, we styled Rahul in three different looks. …

Bhel Pluck Style, Textures of Mango

PLUCK-ed freshly from the season’s greatest regional farms and brought to the palette in a 4-course meal, the Mango Festival by Pullman Aerocity Delhi has turned out to be a big hit among mango-lovers and fine-diners alike. PLUCK, being the Modern Eurpean and Contemporary fine-diner offers a variety of delicacies prepared fresh from their garden produce. Beating the heat of Delhi summers and celebrating the ‘King of Fruits’ in its full glory, PLUCK is giving an experience that one cannot simply deny. Other than the regular basic delicacy elements that Mango is used for in the kitchens, the team lead by Chef Ashish, has mastered the art of presenting ‘the king of summer fruits’ in ways you can’t even imagine! Here’s a glimpse of what their specially curated menu has to offer : Assorted breads accompanied by a dish of assorted butter was something I have never experienced before. While me and my food-loving writer friends munched on the breads, we were asked for our drinks preference as the bartender was more than delighted to serve us some instantly mixed concoctions. Speaking about myself, I am quite picky when it comes to adding fruity elements to my food courses. Being skeptical about the sweetness and strong flavour of a Mango, I was under an impression that a 4 course meal might turn out to be too much of mango on my taste buds. But I was proven wrong as such amazingly crafted delicacies were presented to me. A state-of-the-art presentation anted up the culinary experience and I can vouch for the fact that it’ll continue to be a big hit amongst family and food-loving diners of Delhi NCR. The festival is still on if you wish on experiencing the variant flavours of a Mango and should I suggest visiting it …

When Beyonce asks you to put the BASS on, you obey her! The B-Queen knows what magic Bass note is capable of doing to any given song of any given genre. It’s like bringing the beats to life. SONY as a brand, being in the music industry for decades, surely knows the importance of this noise and that understanding has let to the production of one sheer piece of gadget indulgence – SONY MDR XB950B1 WIRELESS STEREO HEADSET WITH EXTRA BASS!   Yep, you heard it right. The headset is not only bluetooth enabled ‘wireless’, but it comes with a button for an extra pumped up dose of Bass. Now it’s hard to explain in words the huge impact bass makes to a song, but if I have to still scribble a line, then i’ll say it’s like letting EMINEM rap (Extra Bass) in a Beatles song. That’s the brilliance of the bass effect. Speaking about the SONY MDR XB950B1 EXTRA BASS STEREO HEADSET, then I can say that I’ve finally found a gadget that gives me pure musical experience with easy handling and application features, surround sound effect (makes you feel like you’re listening to music live in concert), cuts down on the external noise and boosts the amplification of musical beats to their full potential; with ease.   I vouch for the fact that the design of this headset is definitely a magnet in the crowd, because I have seen many heads turn towards this black beauty, while I walk past the herd, lost in the music. The matt black colour of this headset is a big hit among men, but turns out that it equally pleases the girl parade as well! Enhanced Battery life of SONY MDR XB950B1 is an added bonus for travellers like me, who prefer listening to …
