Want to ace the front-slit kurta like a Bollywood celeb? Here's how

3 hours ago  
News / Mid-Day/ Mumbai  
Think the traditional kurta can't have a sexier side? Its long slit avatar might make you do a rethink. It originated from the sharara and gharara (divided palazzos) paired with a long kurti, a style that traditionally em­e­rged from Lucknow, and where women have been wearing it for decades, during festivals and weddings. Today, it's been tweaked to make the traditional attire comfortable and practical. "Usually, a kurta has a simple straight A-line cut; there's no umbrella or flair. But if you are going to wear a gharara under it, which is umbrella-shaped, the flair of your gharara is restricted if your kurta is straight. And he­n­ce, the slit," sa­ys stylist Isha Bhansali. "Indi­a­ns have ma­s­t­ered the art of fusion wh­ere we mix and marry traditional accents with western ones. It can give your look a sexy twist as you show off a bit of your midriff, your legs, and also looks cooler and casual," she says. Isha Bhansali The slide slitTh..
                 

Try a Manipuri dish of snails with pork at this restaurant in Kalina

3 hours ago  
News / Mid-Day/ Mumbai  
What! No. Eeeew," goes our colleague when we offer her a pork dish with snails. Her restricted palate, you see, is repelled by the idea of viscous meat that you have to suck out of a hard shell after cracking it with your teeth. Well, more fool she, because as far as we are concerned, it's love at first bite when we try hoksa with escargot, a Manipuri dish from Kalina's Thotrin Café. So, let's use this article to send out a plea to her, and all other non-vegetarians who limit themselves to the staid options of chicken, mutton, pork and — if you can lay your hands on it in this city — beef. The world is your oyster, after all. So, go on, don't be scared. Open up your taste buds to other possibilities. Start with the hoksa with escargot. The dish consists of fatty chunks of pork and beautiful little black snails swimming in a thin, slightly pungent gravy. The snails are sourced directly from a town called Ukhrul in Manipur. They are smaller than the escargot that the..

Farmers' march to Mumbai suspended after talks with Maharashtra govt

3 hours ago  
News / Mid-Day/ Mumbai  
A leading farmers' organisation on Thursday announced suspension of its ongoing protest march from Nashik to Mumbai over agrarian concerns after talks with the Maharashtra government. The All India Kisan Sabha (AIKS), backed by the CPI(M), announced suspension of the 180-km march from Nashik to Mumbai after a three-and-a-half hour meeting of its representatives with state ministers Girish Mahajan and Jaykumar Rawal. The farmers had embarked on the march on Thursday morning, but it was called off later. "The meeting (held Thursday) yielded positive results. We will suspend the march today," AIKS president Ashok Dhawale told PTI after the meeting between the two sides at Ambebahula village in Nashik. This is the second time in the last one year that farmers were on the roads to protest against the "betrayal" of peasants by the BJP governments at the Centre and in the state. Earlier, they had planned to launch the march on Wednesday but it was deferred by a day allegedly after the state ..
                 

Mohra director Rajiv Rai talks about his upcoming film

Even though he has the most celebrated thrillers to his credit - including Mohra (1994), Tridev (1989) and Gupt (1997) - director Rajiv Rai did not helm a Bollywood film since his last release, Asambhav (2004). "I went into oblivion," he says simply. However, the filmmaker now has in store what he believes is among the "best murder mysteries ever written". Salman Khan While he will announce the details next month, he is willing to give mid-day an exclusive peek into what can be expected. "It is a suspense, crime, action and emotional drama. My script is locked. It's a complicated idea, and a difficult subject." Being helmed on a "controlled budget", Rai laughs when tackling questions on taking his venture to picturesque locations. "I don't have the budget to shoot abroad. I want to shoot the movie in Delhi because I was an assistant director when working on Trishul, which was shot in Delhi." While he has a few titles registered, he is unwilling to reveal the one he will lend to thi..

Rough ride for Vidyut Jammwal while shooting for Junglee

News / Mid-Day/ Mumbai  
Even though his upcoming film, Junglee, is based on the unique relationship between a man and elephants, leading man and adventure junkie Vidyut Jammwal didn't miss out on a chance to showcase his daredevilry in the offering. The actor shot an action sequence that involved an extensive and challenging journey made on a bike; one that Jammwal insisted on executing himself, despite director Chuck Russell's reluctance. The actor says, "When Chuck narrated the sequence to me, I was ecstatic, because it [biking] was another skill I would get to acquire. I knew I had to do it. We went through [an intensive] training before shooting the sequence with the team of Hollywood bike director." A major chunk of the sequence required the actor to ride across wetland, a task he deemed challenging. "The dirt bike has more power, and is quicker than regular bikes. We first learnt about the terrain, and then rode the bike through water and river beds. It was strenuous, and particularly risky to ride on..

News / Mid-Day/ Mumbai  
Amid the controversy over the pre-poll alliance between them, the Bharatiya Janata Prty (BJP) and Shiv Sena have together promised to resolve the issue of reservation for the Dhangar community. Shiv Sena president Uddhav Thackeray led a delegation of the Dhangar community to the chief minister's residence on Thursday evening and returned with an assurance that a quota for this backward class would be ensured in the current term of the BJP-Sena government. Thackeray met the community leaders at his Kalanagar residence, and then travelled with them to Malabar Hill where he spent 45 minutes with the CM. It is learnt that Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis told Thackeray that the report of the Tata Institute of Social Sciences (on reservation for the Dhangars) had been received by the state government, and the advocate general was working on it to make a recommendation to the Centre, before the model code of conduct for Lok Sabha elections is enforced.

News / Mid-Day/ Mumbai  
Just a day after a crude bomb went off on the Mumbai-Ahmedabad Highway near Dahisar's Thakur Mall, an improvised explosive device (IED) was recovered from a state transport bus at Apta village near Panvel on Wednesday night after the vehicle reached the depot. In view of these two incidents, security forces have been put on high alert across the state. The ST bus, which plies between Karjat and Apta villages, reached the bus depot around 10.15 pm on Wednesday after dropping all passengers. More than an hour later, the bus conductor PP Mendake noticed a white plastic bag while he was checking the vehicle before leaving for the day. He immediately picked it up and kept it on a bench outside. Speaking to mid-day, Mendake said, "There were 16 passengers till Apta yesterday. When I spotted the bag, I kept it outside and checked the bus to find out whether the bag's owner had left some thing behind which would help identify the person.

After rape of homeless girl in Mahim, seven-year-old chained to her bed

News / Mid-Day/ Mumbai  
How far would you go to protect your child? One mother's fear for her daughter's safety has become a shackle for the seven-year-old. Day and night, the child remains chained to her cot on the footpath her family calls home. This brutal treatment is the only way her mother could think of to protect her, as she heard how a little girl in Mahim was raped and murdered, after being kidnapped from her pavement dwelling. The girl's mother, Sapna Kaur, said the seven-year-old would get into all kinds of trouble. "I was already upset about her mischiefs. She can't sit still for a minute. She is so naughty, she would fight all the time with her classmates and not focus on studies. So last year, after completing Std II, she stopped going to school," said Sapna. While Sapna, 25, heads out in the daytime to sell hair clips and other knick-knacks on the footpath, her daughter and mother 60-year-old mother, Meet Kaur, stay home at the shack they set up on the footpath at Guru Tegh Bahadur Nagar, Si..

It's all in the textureBurrata is unusual compared to other cheeses. The combination of hard and soft textures creates an interesting play on the palate. Its mildness is comforting," explains chef Manish Luthra, who has created the warm burrata with slow roasted tomato tartare, pesto and gluten-free toast (R650) for The Clearing House. Luthra ascribes the cheese's demand to its homegrown quality. "The cheese is crafted from curd and buffalo milk, which gives it a light and slightly tangy mouth-feel. When paired with the correct accompaniments, burrata can be the perfect dish for you. The best way to enjoy it is with tomato tartare, capers, arugula pesto and olive dust."

Shreyas Iyer slams record 147 to help Mumbai beat Sikkim

4 hours ago  
News / Mid-Day/ Mumbai  
Shreyas Iyer blazed his way into the records book yesterday with his 55-ball 147 knock to register the highest score by an Indian in the T20 format. Iyer's dominating show ensured Mumbai opened their Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy campaign on an empathic note with a 154-run victory over minnows Sikkim at the Emeralds Heights International School ground in Indore yesterday. Mumbai posted 258 for four and then reduced Sikkim to 104-7. Iyer surpassed his India and IPL teammate, Rishabh Pant's 128 for Delhi Daredevils for top honours. Iyer, who clobbered 15 sixes and seven boundaries, could well have scored a double hundred especially with three overs remaining. But he was caught by Lee Yong Lepcha off Milind Kumar. "I was going at 20 runs an over when I got out. I could have [gone for a double century]. There is always a lot of risk involved in going for a big score. But it's not a big deal [missing out on a double ton]. You don't play for records," Iyer told mid-day from Indore. Mumbai were..

Flip for fun

4 hours ago  
News / Mid-Day/ Mumbai  
Daumenkino, the German word for a flip book literally translates to 'thumb cinema'. Inspired by a theory called the persistence of vision — the illusion of motion is brought about by the ability of the human eye to keep seeing an image of an object for a fraction of a second — the flip book which used the medium of paper for animation, made way for the motion picture. So, when we hear of a session aimed at teaching you to make one yourself, we are curious. Although we've been acquainted with animation on software before, this seems to be a bigger challenge considering you have to meticulously devise and draw each step of motion. We receive a step-by-step instruction manual from Samidha Gunjal, a Pune-based illustrator and animator of Studio Dhamisa who will conduct the workshop. In it, she has illustrated phases of animation by the example of a flower blooming. "People tend to get over ambitious while planning the action drawing. It's important to keep it simple and add de..

Student throws mobile into gutter before HSC exam. Here's why

4 hours ago  
News / Mid-Day/ Mumbai  
The stringent rules about students not being allowed to carry mobile phones during the Higher Secondary Certificate (HSC) exams that began on Thursday, sparked a discussion when a student allegedly threw hers into a gutter outside the centre. The incident happened outside Ramnivas Ruia Junior College, when the student was asked to leave her phone behind before entering the exam hall. She did not return to retrieve it. The girl whose identity is not known, probably had no one accompanying her to keep it with, and so allegedly threw away the phone in order to enter the exam hall. A security guard said, "Everyone was asked to keep their phones outside the gate, as they are not allowed inside the exam hall. When she was told she simply could not take the phone inside, she immediately threw her phone in the gutter, and entered the exam centre. She hasn't returned to take it." The authorities at the college refused to comment about the incident. However, a faculty member said, "The colle..

Just when you thought you had read it all, comes another road rage incident to shake up the most hardened. The Gamdevi police have arrested a biker who dragged a 79-year-old architect 500 metres in an attempt to snatch his camera. Recently a Cumballa Hill resident was going to Gamdevi Police station with a friend. A biker coming from Peddar Road crashed into their car and an altercation ensued. There was an intervention by another biker, and when the senior citizen took this man's picture on his camera, this biker tried to snatch the camera, dragging the 79-year-old man 500metres along the road. The old gentleman sustained several bruises. The biker claimed he snatched the camera as he was fearful of the crowd that had gathered. It is shocking that this man did not think for a minute and dragged such a senior man for a distance in his attempt to get away. It is wise if people, who wish to intervene in altercations on roads, call the cops for help or intervention rather than try to fi..
