  • Dev Anand: Bollywood's Very Own Peter Pan Says Adieu

    From 'Baazi' in 1951 to 'Chargesheet' in 2011, it was an untrammeled joyride through six decades of Bollywood. It's curtains for the ageless Dev Anand, who oversaw the growth of the Hindi film industry from the black and white era to technicolour, and leaves behind a unique legacy of a star who had moved way beyond his cinematic works.

    He acted, he directed and produced... almost till the end with his last film 'Chargesheet' being released this year when he was all of 88 and still raring to go, as ebullient and ageless as ever. Reviewing 'Chargesheet', a well known critic put against the rating 'irrelevant'. It truly didn't matter by then whether the film was good or bad. The much loved legend had given so much through the years that he was forgiven almost everything.

    Dev Anand epitomised the suave, urban gentleman who romanced his way through generations of heroines -- from Nalini Jaywant to Zeenat Aman.

    And of course, his charming persona is incomplete without a

    The highest run chase achieved at the Kotla was in fact by the West Indies vs India in 1987. They scored 276/5 to win the game which included a blistering century from Viv Richards.This time around though. India will be chasing in the 4th innings. What total do you think they can successfully chase on a deteriorating pitch?

    Superfoods seem to come and go as frequently as the latest fashions, but many of the tried-and-true options often get overlooked. They don't have to be exotic or expensive - in fact, many are grown in Canada, easy on the budget and readily available at the grocery store. Here are some top choices you may be overlooking.


    Some berries get all the glory — like blueberries, strawberries, acai and goji berries — but they can be expensive or hard to find during certain times of year. Cranberries offer the same antioxidant benefits as other red berries, not to mention vitamins A and C and 2 grams of fibre per 1/2 cup, but we often neglect this potent fruit outside of holiday season because they're too tart to be eaten alone.

    I was a student in college when the Rodney King beating took place. I'll never forget the trademark comment he made after the riots.... "can we all just get along?" So simple, yet so profound. That motto resounds countless times in my head over the years. To this day, I'm confused and saddened by things out of my control that make no sense. Couldn't we all just get along?

    The same can be said about love, relationships, men, women, friends, exes.... the list goes on. Why can't we all just be civil adults that accept what happens in life and move on with dignity and respect for each other? Oh, here I go again assuming that everyone else thinks like me, and since I feel like we owe these small acts of kindness to each other, that obviously, everyone else will feel the same way. I've been wrong before for assuming such things, and it seems I have a hard time learning life's lessons.


    When my ex left, I cried. A lot. I remember driving my kids to school and having to lift my
