Dilliwala Khazana Festival Was Fantasy Treat For The Senses

The very famous Daulat Ki Chaat being served at the festival
In the course of daily life, and perhaps partly with trying to keep excess calories and fat out of one's diet, the rush of a treat to one's tastebuds goes missing along with time. And that is exactly why festivals like the Dilliwala Khazana come into the picture, to treat one's gastronomic side to an absolute array of delights. From Daulat ki Chaat (a heavenly treat for the delicate tongue with it's light weight and a lingering creamy aftertaste) to Fried Momos, to Milkshakes, to Kebabs, and many such more, were there at the festival which took place at the Ambience Mall, Vasant Kunj, over a 3-day period.

Getting A Reliable Car Spa Experience Just Got Easier With Car Fit Experts

Windshield Experts outlet in Kailash Colony where Car Fit Experts are present too
Car care is becoming an increasing concern, especially those who spend more than a pretty buck buying and maintaining, sometimes with less than desired results. While buying is relatively more of a possibility, maintaining it remains a pain point considering the plethora of local car repair and cleaning services, whose work can never really be banked upon. That is where Car Fit Experts (a Windshield Experts brand) comes in, taking care of a lot of common issues which car owners in metropolises face, including wiper blade replacement, battery check replacement, car detailing & headlight restoration, alongside car care products. The outlet at Kailash Colony in Delhi, was the place of showcase of some of the services.

Jack Daniel's Masterclass On The Tennessee Whisky Trail And The Brand

Jack Daniel's staple
With commonly believed traditions of whiskey tasting, Scottish whisky tends to be taking in the leads as favorites of connoisseurs and consumers at large. It was not until Jack Daniels decided to hold a masterclass at the Taj Hotel in Diplomatic Enclave in Delhi, that the intricacies of American, and more specifically Tennesse whiskey, became more clear. The masterclass was hosted by Cam Dawson, the UK brand ambassador of the Jack Daniel's brand, who himself is a Scot, but took to the American variety after developing a taste fairly early. 

LIVitup Is The Ayurvedic Hangover Shield Before Anything Boozy

Customized sample pack for LIVitup testing

Alcohol consumption is a habit of the modern lifestyle, though it obviously differs from individual to individual, as to how much or frequently it is consumed. For those that do consume, one of the common issues is the hangover problem, the 'morning after', or after a period of sleep from the drinks taken. This means a period of nerve-wrecking headaches, the nausea which follows, and the seriously wretched period of throwing up, but there is indeed a solution to avoid this discomfort. Dadra based Herbolab India's brand, called Dr. Vaidya's, has a product called LIVitup! which is ayurvedic set of tablets to prevent the hangovers, and hopefully leave good experiences to recount after!

Funfood's new flavors; Kesar Pista and Badam-Elaichi
The summers are indeed killing it, or rather us, literally. The temperatures are soaring enough, and a cooler was much needed. That is when milkshakes came to mind, especially the ones you can try our with chilled milk, to beat the heat. Funfood's was generous enough to send some samples across of their latest products in the milkshake range, namely the Kesar-Pista and Badam-Elaichi mix, and both of them really did serve their purpose.

The Story Of North-East India’s Rich Fabric Culture

Assam Silk Saree (Courtesy: Giftideaz) India’s North-Eastern sisters, a group of states including Tripura, Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Mizoram, Manipur, Meghalaya, Nagaland, and Sikkim, indeed happen to be a part of the union of India, but seem to be out of focus from a lot of the mainstream development. However, this has not changed the fact, that part of India happens to be a zone of great legacies including those related to fabrics and handloom. This is an honest effort in the direction of exploring this legacy, of varied fabrics and handloom, indigenous to this region of India.

India is waking up to a lot of different taste in it's liquor palette, even as the country takes measures to curb the sale of alcohol wherever possible. However, in the April afternoon of Delhi, the ITC Welcome Hotel in Delhi's Dwarka area, held the Grand Finale of the North American Whiskey Championship which ultimately put Vikram KU, from the Taj Palace Hotel, as the winner of the competition.

So, after winning at this event, Vikram will now go on guided tour to the well-known Jack Daniel Distillery in Lynchburg, Tennessee and the Woodford Reserve Distillery in Versailles, Kentucky.

Zurie's New Design Studio Transforms Craftmen Into Designers

Zurie Design Studio at the Radisson Blue Hotel in Pashchim Vihar, Delhi
As they say, 'Change is the only constant', as when such a thing is for the better, especially when it comes to to changing the way people are perceived to be, or refining people for a better purpose, there is a sure bout of optimism in the whole state of affairs. This line of thought, was the case to indirectly address the latest initiative by Zurie, which is the launch of their design studio at At the Raddison Blue Hotel, in Delhi's Pashchim Vihar. With the aim of making 'designers' out of the 'karigars' (craftsmen), Zurie is the luxurious shopping experience for handcrafted jewelry and accessories, including cufflinks, neck pieces, haute perfumes, studded clutches, and earrings, each meant for various special occasions.

Blossom Kochhar Shares Secrets For An Aromatic Lifestyle

On the cover of her latest book, Dr. Blossom Kochhar
With the pollution virtually being in every corner of our lives, literally, and perhaps even mentally, it gives quiet the relief to find sometime for healing, and bringing fragrances into our lives. From the the consumption of dust, pollution, and negative energy, to their anti-thesis of Aromatherapy, which restores and enhances, the human body and the energies around it, seemed a rather likely alternative we all needed. Who better to herald this discussion than Dr. Blossam Kochhar, whose range of products sold under the lady's brand name, especially the essential oils, remain a 'swear-by' aspect for faithful of the fragrant science. At Crossword Studio in Delhi's Connaught Place, a book reading session of the title, 'Aroma Therapy- A Way of Life' was organized, where Dr. Kochhar was the prime attraction, and journalist Vinita Dawra Nangia played the host.

PVR VKAAO Is More Kaabil With New Theater-On-Demand Services

Returning from the abyss of being 'e-absent', it was a rather pleasant time, trying to catch-up (watch, rather) with a few names, who were earlier a distant vision on TV, or online, as is the case here. In the winter of January 2017, PVR Ltd. took a step towards bringing cinema on a more customized level, with the launch of VKAAO, their 'Theater-On-Demand' service. It was obviously coupled with the promotion spree of Hrithik Roshan and Yami Gautam starer 'Kaabil', which is stated for release later in the month. Though for the deep-thinkers' mind, some things may have been obvious, but for newbies who are not used to having A-listers around as often, the excitement of having the 'beauty with brains' and the 'best dancer of bollywood' (subjective of course) personas, became the center-stage of excitement at the event.
