The year that was...

From communal riots in Trilokpuri to the Taliban attack on Peshawar, maybe 2014 was a year that is best forgotten, writes Seema Goswami. Maybe we'll have a better time of it in 2015.

Winter: the best time to improve your health

Yes, the winter makes us vulnerable to cough and cold. But it’s also the best season of the year to improve your health and pump up your immunity. Shikha Sharma answers why.

OnePlus and the banning chronicle

The ban on OnePlus One phones seems to have started a long-overdue tech war. Great phones, great prices, great features! How can that ever be a bad thing, wonders Rajiv Makhni.

The best for the last

Two weeks of restaurant hopping across Bombay, Maldives, Bangalore and Delhi threw up some great surprises, and then some. They say that travel broadens the mind, but it certainly broadens the waistlines too, writes Vir Sanghvi.

A problem of Uber proportions

Let us look at the technology that a company like Uber could have used to make taxis safer and a small effort to dispel some of the ridiculous ideas being perpetuated as ‘perfect’ future solutions, writes Rajiv Makhni.

My faith is an intensely private matter: Seema Goswami

Let’s not allow Hindutva to destroy the essence of Hinduism: tolerance and open-mindedness. It doesn’t matter what the faith is called, just so long as it reaches God, writes Seema Goswami.

Maldives: Of amazing lagoons and top-of-the-line resorts

It’s not only one of the most beautiful destinations in the world (with its lagoons, clear water and amazing underwater world), but the Maldives is also where luxury chains are setting up breathtaking, top-of-the-line resorts, writes Vir Sanghvi.

The taste of Gujarat

Gujarati food is a complex interplay of flavours, and if you think it is only sweet, you’re just plain ignorant, writes Vir Sanghvi.

Fitness Bands 2.0

Fitness bands might have died a quiet death but they’re slicker, better and ready for a comeback, writes Rajiv Makhni.

Style files

Tracing your life story through fashion can be both fun and traumatic, writes Seema Goswami.

The faceputers are coming

Virtual reality devices are now closer to reality and they’ve got their eyes on you. Rajiv Makhni talks about the Oculus Rift, why Facebook buying Oculus is a good thing, and why the Google Cardboard (or Oculus Thrift) will wow your eyes.

We want our legacy to live on

Yes, death is inevitable. But a good measure of a person’s life is how they are remembered after they are gone. We all want our lives to have had some meaning. We want our legacy to live on after us, writes Seema Goswami.

New York: Foodie capital of the world

It may not be the capital of the world, but it’s where most food trends are launched, where world cuisines flourish and where chefs find fame. New York is, without doubt, the number one food city on the planet, writes Vir Sanghvi.

The social contract

Be it lipstick stuck on teeth or skirt stuck between thighs, is it better to draw someone's attention to it, embarrass them in the moment or ignore and let them be mortified later on, wonders Seema Goswami.

The dry-fruit advantage

They may be small, but they sure are a storehouse of healthy fats, proteins, vitamins and minerals. Make sure dry fruits like figs, apricots and others are a part of your diet, recommends Shikha Sharma.
